Episode 166 – Casa W Distillery – Wally Caraballo

This episode feature ⁠Wally Caraballo⁠ of ⁠Casa W Distillery⁠.

Wally’s entrepreneurial roots go back to his father’s bar in Puerto Rico where he was making and selling his own sangria. Upon arriving to the United States he set his sights on creating and sharing the traditional Pitorro that he grew up on back home. He began the journey as a moonshiner of sorts. He crafted and perfected the Puerto Rican rum in his basement. His family and friends clamored for this wonderful elixir. Now he’s changing the game with his own expression of what he believes Pitorro should be. To date they have been open for seven months and have become a fixture and destination in the community. Some of their releases sell out so fast and they are working hard to keep up with demand. As Wally says, “Pitorro chose him”.  We are so grateful that it did.

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 153 – Spearhead Whisky – Calum Leslie

This episode features ⁠Calum Leslie⁠ of ⁠Spearhead Whisky⁠.

Spearhead Whisky is a 100% single grain malted barley which is distilled in a coffey style still. Finished in ex-bourbon barrels and then the liquid spends time in infrared toasted virgin American oak barrels. This creates a spirit that is sweet, light and super approachable for a Scotch whisky. Calum came to Loch Lomond distillery in 2019 as head of innovation. His desire was to introduce new consumers in the brand. This whisky is definitely spearheading a movement. They are doing things differently. Creating new fans one at a time. Pick up your own bottle or order it at the bar. Either neat or as a cocktail. This may become your new favorite and everyday drinker.
