Emily McCommon


Quality is of utmost importance here at Double Cola, so we're constantly testing everything from ingredients to finished products in cans and bottles. Emily is the lucky one who tests the products. Her favorite part -- the taste sampling. When not in the lab, Emily enjoys all things outdoors, whether it be hiking, bouldering, or playing soccer with her little sister.
