    Keeper's Heart Whiskey - Pip Hanson

    Keeper's Heart Whiskey - Pip Hanson

    This episode features Pip Hanson of Keeper's Heart Whiskey.

    Keeper's Heart was created at an O'Shaughnessy, Irish American family reunion in Minneapolis five years ago. The O'Shaughnessy's came to America during the potato famine. The reunion brought the family together to reminisce and converse over whiskey. The idea to start a distillery sprang to life. This family endeavor would pay homage to the ideals and traditions of their immigrant roots. Today a 30,000 square foot distillery, restaurant and bar has come to fruition. Brian Nation was brought onboard to be the head distiller and blender. Steps were taken to source the finest whisky from their favorite distilleries in Ireland and the United States. The plan is to continue to source their flagships and today they are laying down their own juice which is distilled in copper pot stills. Look for those iterations to please consumers in about two years. Pip is responsible for the bar, cocktail program and training. What you'll find when you visit are three different bars and full kitchen for your enjoyment of this incredible whiskey brand.

    Spearhead Whisky - Calum Leslie

    Spearhead Whisky - Calum Leslie

    This episode features Calum Leslie of Spearhead Whisky.

    Spearhead Whisky is a 100% single grain malted barley which is distilled in a coffey style still. Finished in ex-bourbon barrels and then the liquid spends time in infrared toasted virgin American oak barrels. This creates a spirit that is sweet, light and super approachable for a Scotch whisky. Calum came to Loch Lomond distillery in 2019 as head of innovation. His desire was to introduce new consumers in the brand. This whisky is definitely spearheading a movement. They are doing things differently. Creating new fans one at a time. Pick up your own bottle or order it at the bar. Either neat or as a cocktail. This may become your new favorite and everyday drinker.

HouseofDudley ,

Mount Vernon distillery

I stumbled upon this podcast being a huge fan of the Mount Vernon Distillery. I was very thoroughly entertained with the questions asked by the host. I’m not even that much of a spirits enthusiast but this episode really stood apart with its history lessons as well. Looking forward to listening to some more episodes.

Bsalk ,

Just fun!

More of a wine drinker, then a sprits enthusiast. Enjoying the human stories behind the businesses. Rich can be a little campy, but he is a lot of fun to hang out with.

Boozedancing ,

A Good Old-Fashioned and Boozy Time was had by all!

Rich Baby! Thanks so much for having us on your podcast. You are a SUPERB and gracious host (i.e. you put up with our nonsense and didn't kick us off the air!), and we had a glorious time! Hope to do this again real soon. Cheers! - G=LO
