Our Founder

The Flavorman Himself

David Dafoe founded Pro-Liquitech International in 1992 after being employed by the Brown-Forman Beverage Company where he developed the Jack Daniel’s Country Cocktails, Pepe Lopez Margarita Mix, Southern Comfort Cocktails and Jack Daniel’s Lynchburg Lemonade Mix, among others. David started the company with only one customer and no employees – that quickly changed. Pro-Liquitech would later become Flavorman, an international custom beverage production company with clients like Chiquita Brands, Ocean Spray and Jones Soda.

In the spring of 2012, David founded Flavorman’s sister company Moonshine University on the Beverage Campus in downtown Louisville, KY. Founded on Kentucky’s rich distilling history and David’s 25 years of experience in the beverage alcohol industry, Moonshine University, an artisan distillery and education center, was born. Moonshine University was designed to provide beverage alcohol industry education and training, both in a classroom setting and on equipment specially built for educational purposes. This enabled startup productions, industry professionals and those new to the industry to benefit from the region’s wealth of experience and knowledge.

David volunteers for the Jefferson Community + Technical College, serves as a Director for the Miami University Foundation Board, as well as chairing the DEI Committee on the Board and other Miami University committees. He also volunteers for the Norton Healthcare Foundation Board, and the Board of Dare to Care, a local food bank. David is an avid traveler and has his certificate for Open Water SCUBA.
