Episode 93 – Roger Wilco – Jamie Arking

This episode features Jamie Arking of Roger Wilco Wine and Spirits.

The legend is that in the 1950’s there was an airport close by.  There was a pilot there that had a small liquor store at the airport.  The business grew to the locations that you can find them today.  In 1984 Jamie’s father and uncle purchased the business.  A great explosion took place.  His first job , at 11 years old, was bagging ice.  He took off, explored the United States, to blaze his own path.  Until one day in 2009 his father called him back into the store.  Jamie shares that the customer service has always been the most important focus.  The other goal was to have a huge selection and variety of products.  In this episode, Jamie shares how he is working to source products through the supply chain issues.  We talk about the Wilco Whiskey Group and discuss the day to day challenges wine and spirits business.

Episode 79 – Triple Sun Spirits – Kris Kwant

This episode features Kris Kwant and Sara Stier of Triple Sun Spirits Co.

20 years ago Kris was watching the TV program “How it’s made”, with his father.  The episode featured Sam Adams Brewing.  From watching the program, the home brewing bug took hold of him.  He and his dad purchased a kit and it actually turned out pretty good.  The next adventure was to make a Barley Wine.  The intention for this would be to share with his son when he turned 21.  Kris explains that “making good whiskey starts with making good beer”.  In 2016 Kris embraced the craft spirits movement.  Triple Sun is a cocktail bar that moonlights as a distillery.  They are very hospitality focused.  Enjoy this lively episode where we  discuss history, beer and all things Triple Sun.
