This episode features Angel Rivera and Crystal Rivera of Puerto Rico Distillery.
Angel and Crystal opened the distillery in March of 2020, just as the Covid shutdown took effect. The City of Frederick and the surrounding community has welcomed them with open arms. It has been a great fit for everyone. It wasn't an easy decision at first. But, when the Rivera's made up their minds, they sold their home and moved to Frederick. There is family and culture around Pitorro. It is a Clandestine Rum that is Puerto Rican Moonshine. This is the true Puerto Rican Rum passed down from generation to generation. "Puerto Rican born and Maryland made." So, what is Pitorro? Listen to the podcast episode and learn all about it.
