Episode 180 – Drew Mayville – Buffalo Trace/Sazerac

This episode features ⁠Drew Mayville⁠ of ⁠Buffalo Trace⁠ and ⁠Sazerac⁠.

When Drew was originally looking for work he applied to a brewery and a distillery. The distillery turned out to be ⁠Seagram’s⁠. In hind sight this was his best move. He began in the distillery lab. After many years of working in different areas he was promoted to the Master Blender. We discuss his role at Buffalo Trace and some of the nuances for being a Master Blender. His first priority is being responsible for the consistency and quality of the spirit that goes into every bottle. Drew is always looking to make a better whiskey with Sazerac’s Buffalo Trace Distillery. Today he’s transitioning into being more of an ambassador and educating people about the products. After the interview, The Master Blender led us through a master class on some of Buffalo Trace’s most coveted expressions. Almost 200 plus in attendance at Roger Wilco were grateful for this once in a lifetime experience.

Episode 178 – BOTLD – Andrew Auwerda and Drew Perry

This episode features ⁠Andrew Auwerda⁠ and ⁠Drew Perry⁠ of ⁠BOTLD⁠.

The idea for BOTLD came during covid. Andrew was running ⁠Philadelphia Distilling⁠. The ⁠PLCB⁠ was closed for 12 weeks during the lockdown. That was their number one purchaser of ⁠Bluecoat American Dry Gin⁠. They quickly pivoted to direct to consumer sales. This practice became a huge success. Today BOTLD’s mission is to bring a more adventurous, wider, deeper selection of spirits to consumers, as well as, bars and restaurants. They curate brands and spirits that can’t get into the PLCB. BOTLD partners with those brands and brings them to the shelves in Pennsylvania. Distinction… Discovery… Delivery

Episode 176 – Springbrook Hollow Farm Distillery – Christian Ryan

This episode feature ⁠Christian Ryan⁠ of ⁠Springbrook Hollow Farm Distillery⁠.

This ten year journey began as a hobby for the founders of Springbrook Hollow Farm Distillery. They are lovers of bourbon and whiskey. The idea of opening a winery didn’t appeal to them as much as starting a distillery. The timing fell in line with New York’s changing its farm distillery laws. Christian came on board three years ago as the head distiller. He has had his hand in brewing since 2007, so the transition to distilling was a comfortable move. They have recently expanded and moved into a new space to give their guests an even more fabulous experience. The added room provided for much needed production and barrel storage area. Springbrook Hollow Farm Distillery offers consumers a chance to experience the flavor and character of the Adirondacks.

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.

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.

This episode feature ⁠Aidan Mehigan⁠ of ⁠Natterjack Irish Whiskey.⁠

Aidan was living in London and he realized that the didn’t have a favorite Irish Whiskey. At the time he was working in finance and he had the desire to build something. In 2015 he registered the name Natterjack and received a cease and desist order from Jack Daniel’s. The whole concept for this Irish Whiskey is to do something different. From the inception the brand mascot has been a toad. The team has been built on the premise of being different as well. The bottles began hitting the shelved in 2019. This is a great drinking whiskey which is painstakingly finished and distilled to their specification. Natterjack expresses fun and they have only begun on their journey.
