Episode 67 – Puerto Rico Distillery – Angel and Crystal Rivera

This episode features Angel Rivera and Crystal Rivera of Puerto Rico Distillery.

Angel and Crystal opened the distillery in March of 2020, just as the Covid shutdown took effect.  The City of Frederick and the surrounding community has welcomed them with open arms.  It has been a great fit for everyone.  It wasn’t an easy decision at first.  But, when the Rivera’s made up their minds, they sold their home and moved to Frederick.  There is family and culture around Pitorro.  It is a Clandestine Rum that is Puerto Rican Moonshine.  This is the true Puerto Rican Rum passed down from generation to generation.  “Puerto Rican born and Maryland made.”  So, what is Pitorro?  Listen to the podcast episode and learn all about it.

Episode 46 – Pine Tavern Distillery – Bill Cox

Pine Tavern Distillery - Bill Cox

This episode features Bill Cox of Pine Tavern Distillery.  Bill and his family love to go camping for their vacations.  They pack up the campers and check out places on the East Coast.  On one of their trips they visited Copper Fox Distillery in Sperryville, Virginia.  Later they pondered, “Why is there nothing like this in NJ?”  Taking the next steps they met with now defunct Cooper River Distillers in Camden, NJ.   This gave them the information and structure that they needed to get started.  Cooper River helped them put things together.  New Jersey is a “Right to Farm” State and they determined that the families farm was the perfect setting to get their distillery dreams going.  Already growing corn on the land it was perfect.  On February 3, 2016 they fired up the still and began to distill their Muddy Run Corn Moonshine.  Now the 8th oldest distillery in NJ they continue to grow and expand.  This camping trip inspired distillery is producing spectacular spirits which pay tribute to local history.  They emphasize a spirit of collaboration with their neighbors and the local community.  149A Pine Tavern Rd, Monroeville, NJ 08343 – (856) 358-1076 – www.pinetaverndistillery.com – Facebook
