The Distiller Series
Whiskey and Words was created to bring people together around distilled conversation and libation. Our desire to share the stories behind each whiskey we try gave way to The Distiller Series. We wanted to find a new way to share the unique path that distillers around the world pave. Unique as each barrel they've seen, these are their stories.
Episode 1: Koval
Dr. Sonat Birnecker Hart and her husband, Robert, created Koval, the first distillery in Chicago, IL since the prohibition. This is the story of what it took to get to where they are today, an award-winning whiskey brand.
