Episode 148 – Liberty Pole Spirits Grand Opening

This special episode features ⁠Jim⁠⁠Ellen⁠, Rob and ⁠Kevin Hough⁠ of ⁠Liberty Pole Spirits⁠.

On July 15th Liberty Pole Spirits entered a new chapter in the history of their whiskey distillery. Friends, family and new fans joined the celebration and filled their new campus to capacity. It was an amazing experience to be part of the festivities and tour this state of the art distillery. The crowned jewel is the largest rickhouse in all of Pennsylvania. This expansive structure provides so much room now to fill and age barrels. 

The tasting room and bottle shop are full of history which is befitting to the distilled spirits that are being produced. It’s a comfortable space to sit, relax, sip and enjoy the sights, sounds and the conversations all around. The cocktails are amazing. A perfect balanced and well rounded compliment to the base whiskey being used. We got see the production space from the seating area overlooking the distillery itself. 

⁠Episode 31⁠ featured Jim and there you can learn about the history and the humble beginnings of Liberty Pole. This episode provides a glimpse into the excitement of opening day, the experiences leading up to it and some never told stories about the beginning of the distillery. 

This is certainly a destination that must be on your bucket list.

Episode 133 – Catoctin Creek Distilling Company – Becky Harris

This episode features Becky Harris of Catoctin Creek Distilling Company .

Becky and Scott founded Catoctin Creek in 2009. At the time there were about 200 distilleries in the United Sates and 6 in Virginia. They began with a vision of making rye whiskey which was “the whiskey” up until prohibition in the Mid-Atlantic States. At Cotoctin they use batch pot still distillation. This is the key to deriving the most flavor from the rye grain. In the beginning it was difficult to get farmers to take a chance on this little craft distillery. Today those farmers are glad that they did. Catoctin produces some of the finest rye whiskey’s. Combine that with the delicious cocktails in the tasting room and you have a recipe for continued growth and success. We enjoyed our fascinating conversation about history, the spirits industry and Catoctin Creek Distilling.

Episode 116 – Spring House Spirits – Chris Demars – Randy and Jenn Litwin

This episode features Chris Demars, Randy Litwin and Jenn Litwin of Spring House Spirits.

Sixty years ago Chris’s grandmother taught him how to distill spirits, make wine and brew beer.  Chris worked as a nuclear engineer which is kind of like being a distiller.  He longed to come back to the family farm and get back to his distilling roots.  He pays homage to his grandmothers background by bringing several grains together in the mash bill.  This bespoke farm distillery is creating amazing spirits that are full of character and flavor.  Each bottle highlights the quality of the process, the local grains, and the connection to the history of the surrounding Chester County community.

Episode 100 – Holy Ghost Distillery – John and Janice Sepcoski

This episode features John Sepcoski and Janice Sepcoski of Holy Ghost Distillery.

Janice and John enjoyed visiting distilleries, breweries and wineries.  After visiting a distillery 7 years ago John said, “I can do better then this”.  This led them to looking for land and a building to host their vision.  What they’ve set out to create is a total experience.  Not just buy a bottle or purchase a cocktail, but the experience to make new friends over a cocktail.   They have left their full time careers to live out a dream.  As Janice puts it, “Now I do Bourbon”.  We had a wonderful time experiencing their chocolate and bourbon pairing.  The final part of our podcast journey was the absinthe extravaganza.  It was all a fitting tribute to celebrate our 100th episode.
