Episode 47 – Old Republic Distillery – Bill Mathias

This episode features Bill Mathias of Old Republic Distillery.  “We distill for flavor baby… It’s all about the flavor.”   The distillery started with a passion.  Bill’s grandfather and great grandfather made home made wine.  They made dandelion and watermelon rind wine.  They made alcohol from what was readily available.  Bill was curious about how they made what they did.  At 18 Bill brewed his first beer and learned all about fermentation.  He runs three stills.  He’s making the mash and fermenting to put out some exceptional and flavorful spirits.  Take a listen and let us know what you think. 330 Town Center Dr York, PA 17408 – 717-870-1792 – www.drinkord.com – Facebook

Episode 46 – Pine Tavern Distillery – Bill Cox

Pine Tavern Distillery - Bill Cox

This episode features Bill Cox of Pine Tavern Distillery.  Bill and his family love to go camping for their vacations.  They pack up the campers and check out places on the East Coast.  On one of their trips they visited Copper Fox Distillery in Sperryville, Virginia.  Later they pondered, “Why is there nothing like this in NJ?”  Taking the next steps they met with now defunct Cooper River Distillers in Camden, NJ.   This gave them the information and structure that they needed to get started.  Cooper River helped them put things together.  New Jersey is a “Right to Farm” State and they determined that the families farm was the perfect setting to get their distillery dreams going.  Already growing corn on the land it was perfect.  On February 3, 2016 they fired up the still and began to distill their Muddy Run Corn Moonshine.  Now the 8th oldest distillery in NJ they continue to grow and expand.  This camping trip inspired distillery is producing spectacular spirits which pay tribute to local history.  They emphasize a spirit of collaboration with their neighbors and the local community.  149A Pine Tavern Rd, Monroeville, NJ 08343 – (856) 358-1076 – www.pinetaverndistillery.com – Facebook

We took the Tube out of London. It was about a 40 minute ride to West London. It was a rainy chilly morning but the excitement of the interview made the day feel warmer. It was about a 10 minute walk from the Tube Station. Past a cemetery and through an industrial area. Then we found it. The main door was open and the team was loading whisky into van for a tasting later that day. Dawn and I were greeted with a delicious simple old fashioned. It wasn’t long before Matt and I began talking and we were learning how this amazing distillery got started. Then to take a tour of the operation. They are true craftsman here in every sense of the word. The tasting was mind blowing. WOW!!! We had a blast and look forward to all of the great spirits to follow from Bimber.
