Our Team

Ownership Team

Dinah Santos

Pharmacist, parent, and keen salesperson — Dinah wears many hats! She can often be found at the helm representing us at markets and events. When she isn’t hard at work, she loves spending time with her family, cooking, baking and staying active in the great outdoors.

Brock Coutts

Formerly an accountant, his past line of work took Brock on many trips around North America. Patent 5 was dreamt up after Brock visited a distillery on the recommendation of a bartender at a craft brewery. A craft beer enthusiast and home brewer with a chemistry degree — Brock teamed up with two friends and the support of his wife, and the rest, as they say, is history.

Our Distiller

Christian Strecker

Christian has always had an interest in spirits and how they are created. To truly learn his craft, he attended Niagara College where he received his Graduate Certificate in Artisan Distilling. When not in the distillery, you can find Christian golfing, playing hockey and enjoying a nice glass of whisky.
