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 87 – Beach Bee Meadery – Curtis Blodgett

This episode features Curtis Blodgett of Beach Bee Meadery.

Curtis began his journey by considering opening a distillery.  He and his wife Madeleine met with distillers to understand the process and what was needed to get started.  They completed a meeting with a rum distiller and to decided to visit a meadery that was close by.  They never had mead and they were totally blown away.  Curtis was familiar with making wine and brewing beer, but he wasn’t familiar with mead.  He looked at Madeleine and said, “this is what I want to do”.  The whole experience was life changing.  We got to talk mead, cider, yeast, barrels and so much more.
