Episode 162 – Alcohol Infused Cigars – Jonathan Williams

Johathan’s father was a banker when he was laid off 11 years ago. He decided that he no longer wanted to work for anyone else. Infusing cigars began as a hobby which has blossomed into his profession. It took a lot of trial and error for selecting the wrapper and perfecting the different infusions. You can find them at festivals selling the perfect pairing to beers, wines and spirits. Or order online and have them shipped right to your door. They even have a cigar club where you will receive special infusions.

Episode 156 – Keeper’s Heart Whiskey – Pip Hanson

This episode features ⁠Pip Hanson⁠ of ⁠Keeper’s Heart Whiskey⁠.

Keeper’s Heart was created at an O’Shaughnessy, Irish American family reunion in Minneapolis five years ago. The O’Shaughnessy’s came to America during the potato famine. The reunion brought the family together to reminisce and converse over whiskey. The idea to start a distillery sprang to life. This family endeavor would pay homage to the ideals and traditions of their immigrant roots. Today a 30,000 square foot distillery, restaurant and bar has come to fruition. Brian Nation was brought onboard to be the head distiller and blender. Steps were taken to source the finest whisky from their favorite distilleries in Ireland and the United States. The plan is to continue to source their flagships and today they are laying down their own juice which is distilled in copper pot stills. Look for those iterations to please consumers in about two years. Pip is responsible for the bar, cocktail program and training. What you’ll find when you visit are three different bars and full kitchen for your enjoyment of this incredible whiskey brand.

Episode 153 – Spearhead Whisky – Calum Leslie

This episode features ⁠Calum Leslie⁠ of ⁠Spearhead Whisky⁠.

Spearhead Whisky is a 100% single grain malted barley which is distilled in a coffey style still. Finished in ex-bourbon barrels and then the liquid spends time in infrared toasted virgin American oak barrels. This creates a spirit that is sweet, light and super approachable for a Scotch whisky. Calum came to Loch Lomond distillery in 2019 as head of innovation. His desire was to introduce new consumers in the brand. This whisky is definitely spearheading a movement. They are doing things differently. Creating new fans one at a time. Pick up your own bottle or order it at the bar. Either neat or as a cocktail. This may become your new favorite and everyday drinker.
