Episode 70 – Whiskey and Wood – Scott Wishart

This episode features Scott Wishart of Scott’s Mini Woodshop

Scotts journey into woodworking began with him needing to fix things around the house.  He learned more about wood turning from watching YouTube videos.  His craft woodwork has become his therapy and his escape.  He connected his love of whiskey & wine with creating bottle stoppers, bottle openers and special wine goblets.  He even made unique tumblers for the podcast episode.  Our interview transforms into whiskey and woodworking with Scott.

Episode 68 – Train Wreck Distillery – Aaron Diamond

This episode features Aaron Diamond of Train Wreck Distillery.

The seed of entrepreneurship was planted by Arron’s Grandfather, Norman Diamond.  At a very young age Aaron would help Norman make beer and wine.  After his grandfather passed, Aaron tried making his own beer and wine.  It just didn’t turn out the same.  According to Aaron it was not very good at all.  That’s when he thought it would be better to distill the bad product that he made.  He turned his sights to distilling.  He began taking classes with his father to learn how to distill.  Traveling all over the country and even London to gain the knowledge that the desired.  In 2014 they purchased a run down train station in Mount Holly.  Right on the banks of the Rancocas Creek.  In 2015 they started distilling and working on perfecting their recipes.  In July of 2017 they opened their door to the public.  Train Wreck is a vibrant distillery where people come for the spirits, the cocktails, the great entertainment and the lively banter.  From it’s humble beginnings this is no longer a train wreck but, a rousing success.

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
