The Modern Bar Cart Podcast

Apr 25, 2019

In this episode, we interview distiller Yianni Barakos of Mason Dixon Distillery in Gettysburg, PA. Some of the things that we discuss include:

  • How a napkin sketch, a home distilling fire, and a serious accident led Yianni to pursue a career in distilling sooner than he had anticipated.
  • What Mason Dixon Distillery is doing to introduce folks in central Pennsylvania to incredible craft spirits and a wide variety of bold flavors in their German beer hall-inspired pub.
  • How Yianni was awarded a special lease to farm his grain on the Gettysburg National Military Park.
  • A curated tasting of Mason Dixon’s excellent craft spirits and some notes on the distilling setup and barrel program used to create them.
  • The differences between a hyper-specialized spirits program and a more wide-ranging approach to building your portfolio.
  • And much, much more.
