Guest: Sonat Birnecker, President Koval Distillery

Koval Distillery Founders:  Dr. Sonat Birnecker & Dr. Robert Birnecker, Master Distiller & CEO

I am talking with Sonat Birnecker from my favorite distillery, Koval. These days they aren’t just producing their excellent whiskeys – they’ve pivoted; big time. They are now in the new business of producing hand sanitizer! It turns out that helping in a crisis is not such a simple matter. Sonat describes this new focus in a most humble and thoughtful way. I hope you enjoy listening to our conversation.
