Episode 156 – Keeper’s Heart Whiskey – Pip Hanson

This episode features ⁠Pip Hanson⁠ of ⁠Keeper’s Heart Whiskey⁠.

Keeper’s Heart was created at an O’Shaughnessy, Irish American family reunion in Minneapolis five years ago. The O’Shaughnessy’s came to America during the potato famine. The reunion brought the family together to reminisce and converse over whiskey. The idea to start a distillery sprang to life. This family endeavor would pay homage to the ideals and traditions of their immigrant roots. Today a 30,000 square foot distillery, restaurant and bar has come to fruition. Brian Nation was brought onboard to be the head distiller and blender. Steps were taken to source the finest whisky from their favorite distilleries in Ireland and the United States. The plan is to continue to source their flagships and today they are laying down their own juice which is distilled in copper pot stills. Look for those iterations to please consumers in about two years. Pip is responsible for the bar, cocktail program and training. What you’ll find when you visit are three different bars and full kitchen for your enjoyment of this incredible whiskey brand.

Episode 150 – Matt Pietrek – The Rum and Cocktail Wonk

This episode features ⁠⁠Matt Pietrek⁠ ⁠The Cocktail Wonk⁠⁠⁠⁠.

It all started about 15 years ago with the love of tiki cocktails. The more that Matt learned the more excited he got. He took his writing experience and turned it into the Cocktail Wonk Blog. For Matt it’s the flavor, the run and the exotic fruits that make the tiki cocktails appealing to him. Beach Bum Berry’s, Sippin’ Safari Book helped all of this to click into place for him. This episode highlights history, rum, tiki and an overall passion for being a Wonk.
