    Old Line Spirits - Mark McLaughlin

    This episode features Mark McLaughlin of Old Line Spirits.  

    Mark and Arch got to know each other from their time in the Navy.  They didn't care for their civilian careers and sitting at a desk.  They were drawn to the romance of the craft spirits world.  Mark went to Seattle for a wedding a few days after quitting his job.  From there it was serendipity.  They went on a fascinating journey that took them to start and open Old Line Spirits in 2017.  Today, they are crafting some incredible American Single Malts.  Their whiskey is full of character and flavor with a story in each bottle.

    Auburn Road Vineyard and Winery - Scott and Julianne Donnini

    Auburn Road Vineyard and Winery - Scott and Julianne Donnini

    This episode features Scott and Julianne Donnini of Auburn Road Vineyard and Winery.  "Growing grapes is an art."

    Scott and Julianne were both practicing attorneys in the City of Philadelphia.  They had reached a time in their lives where they did some searching about the life that they wanted for their future.  It was over a bottle of wine that the conversation of a winery took shape.  They had no idea how to farm, grow grapes or make wine.  They drew from their experiences in Italy to create a vision of what guided them to open Auburn Road.  When it opened in November of 2007 it was the 26th winery in New Jersey.  Today it thrives as a social hub, a mini vacation spot and a destination that transports you to experience some tremendously wonderful wines.

    Gregg "Boog" Williams - Boogs Best LLC

    This episode features Gregg "Boog" Williams of Boogs Best LLC.

    Gregg has become known as "The Lamp Guy".  His new endeavor started after finishing off a bottle at the Twisted Tale in Philadelphia, PA.  A few weeks later he made his first lamp out of an empty bourbon bottle.  This quickly spread into another bottle and even pendant lighting.  Today Boogs Best Llc is producing really amazing keepsakes and conversation pieces.  He takes used barrels and makes cabinets out of them.  Breaking down the barrels he is creating wall hooks and display shelves.  He even is making cigar holders.  Gregg's passion of bourbon and whiskey is touching lives and building long-lasting relationships.   Listen as he shares some of the experiences that he has enjoyed on his fermented adventure.

    Grand Illusion Hard Cider - Chad Kimmel

    Grand Illusion Hard Cider - Chad Kimmel

    This episode features Chad Kimmel of Grand illusion Hard Cider.

    The name Grand Illusion Hard Cider was inspired by magic. Slight of hand if you will.  The inspiration for this cider comes from the tasting rooms that you find at breweries. Originally conceived to be a tasting room for wine, Chad made a serendipitous pivot into cider and opened his own vision for what a craft American cidery should be.  He draws his inspiration from his own experiences and and the ciders that he has tried.  Putting his own spin on the flavor profile.  Grand Illusion opened its doors on February 2018 and has quickly become an anchor attraction in downtown Carlisle, PA.
