And in our final segment, we will be welcoming Whitney Rorison to the show. Whitney is the Hospitality Manager for Dillon’s Small Batch Distillers. This is a small family owned distillery located in NOTL, who chose to be there for its proximity to incredible fresh, local ingredients. Dillon’s uses 100% Niagara grapes for their vodka, they grow their own herbs and botanicals and have won many awards for their range of spirits and bitters. A great story, fabulous products and delicious cocktails.

GEOFF DILLON THE DISTILLER

Geoff’s fascination for spirits began early. He was highly influenced by his fathers passion for fine spirits and his worldly spirits and whisky collection.
His distilling journey began at the University of Western Ontario, where he earned honors in a double major in biology and economics. His experience only furthered as he trained abroad (in areas such as Scotland, London UK, and US) while educating himself in the art of distilling.

Eventually, Niagara lured Geoff home as the ideal place to put down some roots. Small-town friendliness, abundant fruit, a close proximity to neighbouring wineries and a well established wine culture — the region was a perfect fit

 

 

 

 

 

And finally over to the extraordinary country of Peru, mystical, exciting, exploding on the scene in terms of gastronomy and their “hippest drink of the moment”... Pisco an awesome clear white spirit, an unaged brandy that's been made in Peru for over 400 years.
. Melanie Asher, the founder, proprietor and hand crafted producer of Macchu Pisco, joins us. You are going to love her, she has a great story and a stunning Pisco.

Listen to Melanie Asher at 52:00 minutes into the show

 

 

Scotland had Johnnie Walker, the United States had Jim Beam, France had Richard Hennessy and now Peru has Melanie Asher. The 34-year-old has probably done as much in a decade to elevate the profile of Pisco, her native country’s signature spirit, as any booze pioneer did in his time for Scotch, bourbon or Cognac. 

 Melanie Asher the quintessential entrepreneur had a picture of Donald Trump inside her school locker. Handsome David Hasselhoff of the day gets trumped by"The Donald".
