Interview: Master Distiller Tom Nichol on His Drink of Choice
Interview: Master Distiller Tom Nichol on His Drink of Choice As his collaboration with J. Rieger & Co. rolls out, the retired master distiller sits down in our studios for a reflection on life, love, and — wait for it — gin
It’s a story that made headlines: Retired master distiller for Diageo, owner of Tanqueray gin and other spirits, gets back in the game for one more batch. The special distillery ? Kansas City’s history-rich J. Rieger & Co. The distiller? Tom Nichol. The liquor? Gin, of course. But his gin, his way.
Finally, the much-discussed gin has arrived, and Nichol came to the KCPT studios for an interview with The Bridge’s Jon Hart.
