The Modern Bar Cart Podcast

Feb 28, 2019

In this craft spirits conversation and tasting with distiller Nate Groenendyk, some of the topics we discuss include:

  • How a duo of spirits enthusiasts converted their love for craft spirits into an agricultural and distilling operation that’s pumping out delicious apple brandy and dutch style gin.
  • A comparison of Dutch-style gin and London Dry gin, specifically looking at differences in production methods, flavor profiles, and cocktail applications.
  • We also really dig deep into all the little choices that each craft distiller must make regarding ingredient sourcing, fermentation, distillation, and maturation that all build upon one another to create the unique fingerprint of each distillery.
  • Nate fantasizes about traveling back in time to let his great grandfather in the Netherlands taste his version of Genever.
  • Eric asks some typical probing questions about barrels and mash bills.
  • And we both sample a little bit of Sangfroid’s delicious Hollands Style gin.
