Episode 116 – Spring House Spirits – Chris Demars – Randy and Jenn Litwin

This episode features Chris Demars, Randy Litwin and Jenn Litwin of Spring House Spirits.

Sixty years ago Chris’s grandmother taught him how to distill spirits, make wine and brew beer.  Chris worked as a nuclear engineer which is kind of like being a distiller.  He longed to come back to the family farm and get back to his distilling roots.  He pays homage to his grandmothers background by bringing several grains together in the mash bill.  This bespoke farm distillery is creating amazing spirits that are full of character and flavor.  Each bottle highlights the quality of the process, the local grains, and the connection to the history of the surrounding Chester County community.

Episode 79 – Triple Sun Spirits – Kris Kwant

This episode features Kris Kwant and Sara Stier of Triple Sun Spirits Co.

20 years ago Kris was watching the TV program “How it’s made”, with his father.  The episode featured Sam Adams Brewing.  From watching the program, the home brewing bug took hold of him.  He and his dad purchased a kit and it actually turned out pretty good.  The next adventure was to make a Barley Wine.  The intention for this would be to share with his son when he turned 21.  Kris explains that “making good whiskey starts with making good beer”.  In 2016 Kris embraced the craft spirits movement.  Triple Sun is a cocktail bar that moonlights as a distillery.  They are very hospitality focused.  Enjoy this lively episode where we  discuss history, beer and all things Triple Sun.
