This episode of The Craft Spirits Podcast is part of a special series of conversations with some of the founding members and first board members of the American Craft Spirits Association, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary. Our guest is Nicole Austin, general manager and distiller of Cascade Hollow Distilling Co., the maker of Tennessee’s George Dickel whiskies. Nicole has been a fierce advocate for the distilling industry. She was a founding board member of ACSA and previously served as co-chair of its Legislative, Convention and State Guild Committees.
In this episode, Nicole shared her earliest memories of ACSA, including discussions about defining craft spirits and the road to permanent federal excise tax relief for craft distillers, as well as her move to Cascade Hollow.
