Welcome to Utah Grape & Grain! We tell the stories that make Utah a surprisingly good place to explore the world of beer, wine and spirits.

Waterpocket Distillery

Waterpocket Distillery

We sat down with Alan Scott, co-founder at Waterpocket Distillery, to hear how his passion for rediscovering lost and forgotten spirits has led him and his his wife to create Waterpocket.  Alan told us about his dramatic career change that started it all, his desire to introduce new flavors to his customers and his passion for reviving 'lost' recipes.  If you've never explored the world of Amaros, Digestifs or Kümmels - you're in for a treat.  This episode is best enjoyed with a taste of Waterpocket Notom in hand, but if you're not convinced yet then have a listen and we think you'll be on board by the end.
