Pilot Episode

Who other than Gary Heingartner? When I considered who to feature in the show's pilot episode, Gary was the clear choice. He is, first, making fantastic whiskey in the middle of Missouri using heritage breed corn he's growing himself and experimenting with small barrel sizes as well as unique varieties of wood, like chinquapin oak and pecan. He embodied what I want to spotlight in the show: people who are creating products that are authentic to the region where they live and doing work that is helping to set the standard in their respective industries.
