Devin Walden

Spirits Buyer, Total Wine & More

My name is Devin Walden & I’m from Lexington, KY. I first found my passion for the alcohol industry working on the bottling line at Woodford Reserve. I then went on to lead the personal selection program and become their first female distillery operator. This experience gave me a true appreciation and love for the industry. I now lead the Spirits department for Total Wine & More. I thoroughly enjoy learning more about products and the production process of them every day and sharing that with everyone I meet.
