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 133 – Catoctin Creek Distilling Company – Becky Harris

This episode features Becky Harris of Catoctin Creek Distilling Company .

Becky and Scott founded Catoctin Creek in 2009. At the time there were about 200 distilleries in the United Sates and 6 in Virginia. They began with a vision of making rye whiskey which was “the whiskey” up until prohibition in the Mid-Atlantic States. At Cotoctin they use batch pot still distillation. This is the key to deriving the most flavor from the rye grain. In the beginning it was difficult to get farmers to take a chance on this little craft distillery. Today those farmers are glad that they did. Catoctin produces some of the finest rye whiskey’s. Combine that with the delicious cocktails in the tasting room and you have a recipe for continued growth and success. We enjoyed our fascinating conversation about history, the spirits industry and Catoctin Creek Distilling.

Episode 132 – Kyrö Distillery Company – Miika Lipiäinen

This episode features Miika Lipiäinen of Kyrö Distillery Company.

5 Friends in a sauna were passing around a bottle of U.S. Rye Whiskey.  They started to ask themselves… “Why isn’t anybody making whiskey out of Rye in Finland?”  The idea stuck and they began reaching out to those in the distilling industry to help and to determine if this was a viable concept.  Two and a half years later found them opening Kyrö Distillery Company. Today they see themselves as pioneers in the rye whisky space.  Since opening they have won the best gin for a gin & tonic at the International Wine and Spirits Competition in London.  They’re winning hearts, minds and spirit enjoying palates of those that are giving Kyrö a try.  Don’t miss the chance to enjoy some of their wonderful gin or whiskys.  As they say in Finland… Kippis!

Episode 125 – Indepenent Spirits Distillery – Mark Breen-Klein

This episode features Mark Breen-Klein of Independent Spirits Distillery.

Kerry, Mark’s mother, was trying to decide a business to go into as her children were leaving home to explore their lives.  Without any experience or knowledge the decision was made to start a distillery.  Mark brought his biomedical engineering degree background into the family business.  His attention to detail and a focus on a uniform product takes their spirits to a new level.  There are quite a few expressions to be proud of which are all unique, creative and full of flavor.  These are expressions that pay homage to the local farmers of South Jersey that surround this family craft distillery.
