Mr. Stephen Netherton has been a Flight Club member since 2015. Born and raised in Wichita, he returned to his home town after law school to embark on his legal career and raise his family. Additionally, he seeks to enhance his community by connecting with local retailers, publishing information for the public, and encouraging other spirit-minded young professionals to explore the emerging spirit industry in Kansas and across the country.
Mr. Netherton’s role within the club expanded in 2016, when he became editor-in-chief of the club’s Web site. To that end, he willingly accepts opportunities for interviews, sampling, or other promotional endeavors through the Club’s online platform.
A previous recipient of Flight Club’s Man of the Year (MOTY) award, Mr. Netherton continues to provide Club members with inside information regarding the local availability of limited release whiskeys and other spirits.
When he’s not networking with local store managers, Mr. Netherton works on developing his law practice and spending time with his wife and two children. His favorite Wichita bar is Monarch, in Delano. If he could share any bottle with anyone, living or dead, he would share a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle 23-year with Jesus.
