This week’s guests are Kris Boyd and Shawna Kelsey, the founders of Pink Bench Distilling in Troy, Montana. This story is one of community investment, engagement and revitalization. Justin asks Kris and Shawna how they came together around grizzly bears and apples, what is actually needed to make booze and what apple brandy even is. Kris offers that the forest nearby has between 35-40 botanicals that can be used in distilling spirits, and both women share that their goal is to make Pink Bench a family-friendly place, offering mocktails as well. At the end, Justin asks what insight Kris and Shawna would give to people getting into business with friends.
