In this fascinating conversation
with Andrew Yancey of Tarnished Truth Distilling, some of the
topics we discuss include:
- How Andrew and his team opened up the first and
(to-date) only hotel distillery in the US
- Why the history and lore of the Cavalier Hotel
is so important to the brand and its mystique, including
Prohibition-era suicides, fresh prepared wild game, and a
mysterious FBI file involving Richard Nixon.
- We also discuss what it takes to design a
distillery from the ground-up and the logic behind sourcing vs.
in-housing certain spirits at various points in a brand’s growth
- Of course, we chat about the Virginia Bourbon
Invitational, which is a fantastic annual event that will be
returning to the Cavalier Hotel for its 4th year in November of
- Along the way, we touch on the importance of
salt water in your bathtub, why the first person you hire should
always be a chemist, grandfathers with multiple side-hustles, and
much, much more.
