Hospitality industry veterans, Max Trujillo and Matthew Weiss, get behind the scenes of North Carolina's burgeoning food and beverage culture. Hear from local chefs, sommelier's, distillers, farmers, brewers and the whole lot of them in the NC F&B podcast. 

"Our intention is to create a behind-the-scenes conversation between industry professionals. Whether we are speaking with an advanced level sommelier about their wine program or a chef about breaking down an entire pig, we just want the conversation to be real, unedited and honest. The food and beverage world is a unique industry, and North Carolina's food scene is growing everyday.

Take a listen. We hope to entertain, teach and inspire while offering some specific information about the NC food scene."

Learn how a distillery from Statesville, NC is taking the whiskey world by storm and changing the game. It's not only us that believes this "Southern Distilling Company burnished that legacy with six medals at this year’s San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Announced today, Southern Distilling brought home double gold for Southern Star Paragon Cask Strength Single Barrel Straight Bourbon Whiskey and gold for Hunting Creek Bottled-in-Bond Rye Whiskey, along with four silver medals."

We sit down with owner Vienna Barger and her associate, Angelique de Buhr to discuss, and taste, some of the best new whiskey in the land. Cheers to Southern Distilling Company.
