Episode 54 – 5:dirty – Melissa and Kyle Reed

This episode features Melissa and Kyle Reed of 5:dirty. Melissa has a love for dirty martinis.  For her and her mom Maria, it’s their everyday go to cocktail.  The search was on to make the perfect dirty martini.  Kyle and Melissa’s reputation grew and their friends and family would encourage them to bring their dirty martini concoctions every time that they would come over.  By batching the martini it would allow them more time to spend with their guests.  The idea came to them… wouldn’t it be great if we could actually bottle this so everyone could have it?  5:dirty has become a hit.  They make 2 versions, the Dab of Dirty and the Double Dirty.  Pick up a bottle or two, pour yourself a martini and enjoy the episode. www.5dirty.comFacebook

Episode 51 – Sourland Mountain Spirits – Ray and Sage Disch

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
