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.

Dr. George G.

Shochu is the original Japanese craft distilled spirit.  It is more popular than sake and Japanese whisky.  This delicious spirit is a newcomer to the American market.  All of these years it has been unique to Japan and its restaurants.  Iichiko Shochu is distilled from barley.  In 1979 Iichiko was launched.  Today it is the number one consumed shochu in Japan.  After tasting these exceptional expressions we can fully understand why.  We loved learning from Tetsuro about shochu and its origins.

Episode 118 – Invertase Brewing Co. – Stephen, Karen and Steve Zolnay

This episode features Stephen, Karen and Steve Zolnay of Invertase Brewing Company.

When Stephen was 14 he bought his dad a homebrew kit for Father’s Day.  Their first collaboration as father and son was a terrible pale ale that they made on the kitchen stove.  That beginning experience got them hooked on making beer together.  They graduated into making their own recipes, reading the books and talking shop with fellow homebrewers.  They even grew their own hops in the backyard.  It wasn’t long before the idea of starting their own brewery was conceived.  This is a gem of a brewery that makes exceptional beer.  It most certainly needs to be on your brewery bucket list.  Just don’t ask Stephen what’s coming up next.  The beer will tell him when it is ready.
