Episode 61 - David Weglarz of Still 630

For this episode, Colt and James head over to the award winning Still 630 to meet up with David Weglarz. During our conversation with David we discuss all things Still 630 including the genesis of this endeavor, the hows and whys he decided to venture into distilling spirits, and all of the special events that Still 630 has in store for lovers of fine spirits.  One of these ongoing events is the Experimental Spirits Program where, on the first Friday of every month, you can visit Still 630 and try one of these experimental spirits and then give David your feedback.  This is an effort to give you and me a chance to personally determine what the future of craft spirits tastes like.  After the show we took a tour of the distillery, which was very awesome by the way, and we were educated on the distilling process of these fine spirits.  After the tour we had the opportunity to sample several of these spirits including their flagship Rally Point Rye, the S.S. Sorghum whiskey, and Colt and my favorite, Big Jake’s Breakfast Brew, as well as the Expedition Rum.  Still 630 is located at 1000 S 4th St in St Louis, MO at the corner of 4th and Chouteau Ave, just south of Busch Stadium.  Be sure to like and follow Still 630 on social media and look for these very smooth spirits wherever all fine spirits are sold.
