We think it's neat that such a well known distillery is right in our backyard. The Iowa Distilling Company continues to grow and bring new products to market. Here we visit with principal Todd Dunkel about the process of distilling, a new vodka, marketing existing brands and being a young, rural business owner.
Just to the south of Des Moines is the wonderful community of Indianola, which now finds itself as part of the Greater Des Moines Metro. We asked about that and a whole bunch of other questions for our guest Mayor Kelly Shaw. Here is that conversation.
First it was Iowa wine followed by craft beer and then it was craft distilling. There have been lots of changes in the world of distilling spirits and we sat down with Todd Dunkel of The Iowa Distilling Company to talk about the opportunities and the challenges in his business. We also talked about new ideas coming from his place in Cumming, Iowa.
Todd Dunkel is the co-owner of Iowa Distilling Company based in Cumming, Iowa. Currently two bills are working their way through the Iowa Legislature that could have an impact on his business as well as micro-distilling companies across Iowa. We talked about it and what it might mean for...business.
