Episode 73 – Caledonia Spirits – Sam Nelis

This episode features Sam Nelis of Caledonia Spirits.

We met Amy Casale at the Philadelphia Flower Show in 2019.  Dressed in a Bee costume, she introduced us to Barr Hill Gin and we immediately fell in love with the spirits.  We finally made it up to Montpelier, Vermont the home of the Barr Hill lineup.  The distillery was founded by a bee keeper, Todd Hardie.  He is passionate about the land and agriculture, as well as, what bees were bringing to the area.  Todd partnered with Ryan Christiansen who had a home-brew store.  In the beginning they came together and produced mead.  Soon, they began focusing their attention on gin which began winning awards.  The honey takes center stage and leads the way to make their special spirits amazing.  Bees, as Sam explains, are the Angels of Agriculture.  We had a fantastic time sitting down with Sam and discussing all things Caledonia Spirits.  This is most certainly a destination that you want to put on your travel bucket list.

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.
