Episode 175 – Sono 1420 America’s Maritime Distillery – Ted Dumbauld

This episode features ⁠Ted Dumbauld⁠ of ⁠Sono 1420 America’s Maritime Distillery⁠.

Ted’s path to distilling originated from the cannabis industry. He had the idea to build a brand at the intersection of cannabis and alcohol. The innovation that he’s brought to the spirits world is a hemp based product. Ted took hemp seed and added it to the mash bill. Sono 1420 was born in 2020. Their location on the Long Island Sound affords them access to the terroir and maritime environment. Their “Threesome” ready to mix cocktail is another amazing creation that sets this craft distillery apart. What is coming out of ⁠Norwalk, Conn⁠ is so unique and different. We anticipate more wonderful expressions from this young and bold distillery.

For Kevin it began with an interest in cocktail making and mixology. It was an experience with one cocktail in particular that peaked his interest in peated whisky.

We talked cocktails, distilleries, the bourbon trails and so much more in this episode.

Episode 131 – Widow’s Peak Distilling Company – Josh Douglas

This episode features Josh Douglas of Widow’s Peak Distilling Company.

Mike and Mark Ilg were on a ski trip when they devised a plan for a distillery.  Mark had been an avid home brewer for 15 years so the challenge of distilling intrigued him.  2 weeks later, after reading a book, he professed to Mike that he was ready to distill vodka.  They set up shop distilling their spirits in Peach Bottom, PA.   The doors to the cocktail bar and tasting room opened in Ambler, PA in July of 2022.  What you will discover here are spirits layered with flavor and a nuanced sipping experience.  They provide a wide variety of cocktails to highlight they’re handcrafted in PA spirits.

Episode 111 – Method Spirits – Corey Fitzsimmons

This episode features Corey Fitzsimmons of Method Spirits.

Corey was a bartender in New York City for over a decade.  He had the honor of being the head bartender at the new location for the Union Square Cafe.  He quickly discovered the he was not able to source local vermouth that would work for classic cocktails.  He began working on a vermouth using his own recipes and exploring opportunities.  This took him to going out on his own to develop Method Spirits.  He and his partners spent 2 years developing the recipe for their sweet vermouth.  We have to share that it is delicious and complex.  It gives wonderful depth and character to cocktails and it stands on its own neat or with a little club soda.  Keep an eye out for the dry vermouth that they have created.
