On today’s episode, I'm excited to welcome Pixie Paula Dezzutti, CEO of Local Choice Spirits, a company that owns many distilleries and breweries in the USA. She’s a spirits expert and brand developer who has built the #1 distillery in South Carolina, The Striped Pig! Today, we chat about how it all started, their philosophy on brand & product development, their Sip & Share program, being a woman in the industry, how they help others develop a spirits brand, of course their gins, and so much more.
