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.

This episode features Miika Lipiäinen of Kyrö Distillery Company.

5 Friends in a sauna were passing around a bottle of U.S. Rye Whiskey.  They started to ask themselves… “Why isn’t anybody making whiskey out of Rye in Finland?”  The idea stuck and they began reaching out to those in the distilling industry to help and to determine if this was a viable concept.  Two and a half years later found them opening Kyrö Distillery Company. Today they see themselves as pioneers in the rye whisky space.  Since opening they have won the best gin for a gin & tonic at the International Wine and Spirits Competition in London.  They’re winning hearts, minds and spirit enjoying palates of those that are giving Kyrö a try.  Don’t miss the chance to enjoy some of their wonderful gin or whiskys.  As they say in Finland… Kippis!

Episode 125 – Indepenent Spirits Distillery – Mark Breen-Klein

This episode features Mark Breen-Klein of Independent Spirits Distillery.

Kerry, Mark’s mother, was trying to decide a business to go into as her children were leaving home to explore their lives.  Without any experience or knowledge the decision was made to start a distillery.  Mark brought his biomedical engineering degree background into the family business.  His attention to detail and a focus on a uniform product takes their spirits to a new level.  There are quite a few expressions to be proud of which are all unique, creative and full of flavor.  These are expressions that pay homage to the local farmers of South Jersey that surround this family craft distillery.

Episode 108 – Redwood Empire Whiskey – Lauren Patz

This episode features Lauren Patz of Redwood Empire Whiskey.

The story begins not with whiskey but, with wine.  Derek Benham started a wine company over 20 years ago.  He built the brand and sold it in 2013.  He then set his sights on starting a distillery.  White spirits flowed from the still and they began laying down barrels in 2015.  Redwood Empire is located in the heart of Sonoma, California.  Lauren grew up in a wine making family.  Her journey into distilling started with the study of history (Not the history of spirits)  and she learned how to make candy while in Japan.  It was when she was pairing chocolate and spirits that it opened her world to spirits.  Learn more about the amazing whiskeys that Redwood is producing and we are certain that you’re sure to become a huge fan too.  It will be love at first sip.
