Episode 79 – Triple Sun Spirits – Kris Kwant

This episode features Kris Kwant and Sara Stier of Triple Sun Spirits Co.

20 years ago Kris was watching the TV program “How it’s made”, with his father.  The episode featured Sam Adams Brewing.  From watching the program, the home brewing bug took hold of him.  He and his dad purchased a kit and it actually turned out pretty good.  The next adventure was to make a Barley Wine.  The intention for this would be to share with his son when he turned 21.  Kris explains that “making good whiskey starts with making good beer”.  In 2016 Kris embraced the craft spirits movement.  Triple Sun is a cocktail bar that moonlights as a distillery.  They are very hospitality focused.  Enjoy this lively episode where we  discuss history, beer and all things Triple Sun.

Episode 77 – Julie Lanzillo – Pairings Cigar Bar

This episode features Julie Lanzillo of Pairings Cigar Bar.

In 2014 Julie, Debbie and Gary dined at one of their favorite spots.  They were going to a show as they lamented that it would be nice to enjoy a cigar after dinner.  They longed for the summer and the opportunity to smoke on the back deck where they could savor a cigar or two.  It was December and there was snow on the ground.  They discussed the possibilities but there is nothing in the area.  “A cigar bar in the Media area, that’s an interesting idea”, proclaimed Julie.  As Debbie says, “the universe doesn’t make mistakes”.  On October 21, 2016 they opened the doors.  In that time they have created an anchor for the community.  A place for the seasoned cigar aficionado and the novice alike.  Enjoy a fine spirit and pair it with your favorite or something new.

Episode 71 – Christmas City Spirits – Michael “Woody” Dombrosky

This episode features Michael Dombrosky of Christmas City Spirits.

It all began, when a group of 4 coworkers who were rugby players, got together to share their love of the history of Bethlehem, PA.  They formed the restaurant at Tavern at the Sun Inn.  The next step was to bring the spirits into the tavern.  Woody’s family has a long history of distilling in the coal regions of Pennsylvania.  His great grandmother would create Laudanum and make house calls to those with a variety of ailments.  His family has a storied past of making Rye Whiskey.  The owners crossed paths with Woody and they brought him on to distill their incredible spirits and unique recipes.  We learned so much sitting down with Woody and we had a great time enjoying his craft creations.

Episode 68 – Train Wreck Distillery – Aaron Diamond

This episode features Aaron Diamond of Train Wreck Distillery.

The seed of entrepreneurship was planted by Arron’s Grandfather, Norman Diamond.  At a very young age Aaron would help Norman make beer and wine.  After his grandfather passed, Aaron tried making his own beer and wine.  It just didn’t turn out the same.  According to Aaron it was not very good at all.  That’s when he thought it would be better to distill the bad product that he made.  He turned his sights to distilling.  He began taking classes with his father to learn how to distill.  Traveling all over the country and even London to gain the knowledge that the desired.  In 2014 they purchased a run down train station in Mount Holly.  Right on the banks of the Rancocas Creek.  In 2015 they started distilling and working on perfecting their recipes.  In July of 2017 they opened their door to the public.  Train Wreck is a vibrant distillery where people come for the spirits, the cocktails, the great entertainment and the lively banter.  From it’s humble beginnings this is no longer a train wreck but, a rousing success.

This episode features Ray and Sage Disch of Sourland Mountain Spirits.  “Be a maker, not a taker.”We truly had a fantastic time sitting down with Ray and Sage.  Back in the early 90’s Ray was inspired by a story that he heard on the radio about a husband and wife who worked as commodity traders in Chicago.  They left their high paying jobs to open a craft brewery in Chi-town.  Leading the charge and laying the groundwork, Ray helped to sponsor legislation to help to change the laws for New Jersey breweries.   In 1995 Triumph Brewing Company introduced craft beer to the masses in Princeton, NJ.  Fast forward to 2015 Ray along with his wife Erica made the decision to open a craft distillery in their hometown of Hopewell.  It is a family affair at their farm distillery.  What you hear is that Ray brings people together.  He builds teams and develops an environment of creativity and excellence.  He shares the fascinating journey to create their award winning Gin and their portfolio of first class spirits.  Sage discusses what’s next for the distillery and how he is helping to guide them onto a bigger stage.

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
