Episode 103 – Glen Moray – Brenden Raulerson

This episode features Brenden Raulerson  of Glen Moray.

Glen Moray Distillery has been in operation, off and on, since 1897.  The distillery originated out of the Elgin West Brewery in the heart of Speyside. In the early 1900’s they were “mellowing” whisky in Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc barrels.  The philosophy of experimenting with cask finishes still exists today.  120 plus years of experience resonates in the amazing whisky that is being produced.  This Speyside style whisky provides a depth of flavor and character.  Brenden shares the rich history of Glen Moray.  He takes us on a tasting journey and shares his insight and knowledge of the expressions that we had the pleasure to enjoy.

Episode 102 – Absinthia Vermut – Absinthia

This episode features Absinthia Vermut of Absinthia.

It all began in 1996 when Absinthia attended a San Francisco Cacophony Society party.  There was a crystal bowl on the table with a green liquid.  At that very moment absinthe was still illegal.  She tried absinthe for the very first time.  To her it was delicious.  She was drawn to it so much that she decided to produce it.  The first night that she served her neon green absinthe her friends started calling her Absinthia.  Of course the name stuck.  Our conversation is fascinating and full of absinthe education.  You most certainly want to pick up her absinthe and special cocktail mixers.

Episode 101 – The Whiskey Rebellion Festival

This episode features a brief history about the Whiskey Rebellion.  On July 8th we took part in the Whiskey Walk festivities.  Spirit producers were set up throughout the town of Washington, PA.  We got to sample and speak with them as they introduced their products to the masses.  On July 9th we got to witness the amazing retelling of the rebellion.  The actors that portrayed the key principles were sensational.  There were food trucks, activities for the kids and craft vendors.  This was an opportunity to taste what it was like for settlers back in the late 1700’s.   The parade in the morning sets the tone for the rest of the day.  The tarring and feathering is always a crowed favorite.  The entire festival is is a chance to be immersed in a major historic event that most of us have never heard of.  Oh yeah, and you get to enjoy some wonderful spirits and tasty food.  Put this event on the calendar for 2023.

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.

Episode 99 – Revel Spirits – Micah McFarlane and Juan Carlos Gordillo

This episode features Micah McFarlane and Juan Carlos Gordillo of the Revel Spirits.

Ten years ago, Micah was helping out Matt Hector Ruiz, who was starting a tequila company.  The went to Morelos, Mexico where Micah began bringing back the juice and sharing it.  His role became helping to bring the agave spirits to the United States.  The next step was to create a business plan and raise funds. There is so much to the rich history of distilling in Morelos.  The connection to the technology goes back generations.  It’s a family product.  What they produce is not tequila and it’s not mezcal.  They create Avila.  This episode is an amazing education and discovery of agave spirits and what makes Revel special.

The Flying Deutschman Food Truck represents German food culture.  Stirling comes from a chef and restaurant background in Germany.  So he knows what he’s speaking about.  8 Years ago Heidi was created.  It’s a “Disneyesque” pirate themed culinary extravaganza.  His initial interest was to put a real restaurant that serves high quality food from a food truck.  “It’s about flare”, Stirling shared.  There’s an emphasis on customer service.  We enjoyed sitting down and interviewing the chef owner of one of our favorite food trucks.

Episode 95 – Iron Clad Distillery – Owen King

This episode features Owen King of Iron Clad Distillery.

Stephen King purchased the building, a dry goods warehouse built in 1913, approximately 15 years ago.  To best utilize the space, the decision was made to try to store bourbon barrels.  This led to acquiring a 26 gallon still.  From there, they began to get more serious and bought 5 more 26 gallon stills.  This expansion gave them the opportunity to fill one 53 gallon barrel a week.  This slow process encouraged Stephen and Owen to seek advice from other distillers in the industry.  Conversations and experiences brought them to their next step which was to upgrade the entire operation to a 500 gallon still.  Now they had the keys to their own system of producing high quality bourbon in larger batches.  Owen shares that the vision has been to use Virginia based grains.  Their base is a 4 grain mash bill.  The King’s have always been big fans and lovers of bourbon.  So, opening a distillery made sense that this was the direction that the family was headed.  You will hear and understand how the bourbon gene is a part of the families history.  Acknowledging history is in the forefront of how they communicate the Iron Clad story.  Today they make history with their many expressions.  They plant their own flag by creating unique and one of a kind bourbons.  Also, paying homage to the well established distilleries out there too.

Episode 94 – Deep Creek Distilling – Royal Ferguson and Dave Emmons

This episode features Royall Ferguson and Dave Emmons of Deep Creek Distilling.

Dave and Royall have known each other for 20 plus years.  The discussion of distilling came up at a Greek festival in Norfolk.  They began step by step to understand the whole process.  “Doing it the old fashioned way”, as Royall puts it.  Grind the local grain, make the mash and then ferment it.  A lot of their early experience came from trial and error.  They refined and honed their spirits to what have become the amazing products that they offer today.  They are the first licensed legal distillery in the Chesapeake since prohibition.
