History and Future of Witch Hazel - Bryan Jackowitz, Dickinson Brands

May 17, 2024

In this episode, Ari talks to Bryan Jackowitz, President of Dickinson Brands. Bryan has an incredible passion for his business. Between the Witch Hazel product itself, the history of the industry, the sustainable nature of their production, and the growth of the company along the way, what's not to be excited about?


Bryan enjoys talking to Ari about the cool history of the product, but then dives into upgrades in processes, automation, and marketing that are allowing American Distilling and Dickinson Brands to launch into the future.

Organic, natural, local, and native isn't a marketing gimmick, it's truly the way they've been creating their products since the beginning.    

Bryan's favorite book: Good to Great, Jim Collins
