Mateo Flores from Pinckney Bend Distillery

Featured Guests

Mateo Flores, Distillery Associate, Pinckney Bend Distillery

Taste premium spirits made by hand in New Haven, Missouri, and meet Mateo Flores! All of Pinckney Bend’s offerings are the result of what is traditionally grown in the region. For example, they source heirloom corn varietals and cultivate relationships with local farmers who are producing these unique strains of corn. They are committed to producing quality spirits, not quantity. For example, their vodka is pot and column distilled. There are faster methods, but this approach is the best tasting. Come meet Mateo and experience it for yourself.
