Let me introduce you to Kieran Folliard, the Minneapolis entrepreneur behind 2 Gingers Irish Whiskey. As some of you know, last summer, I had a chance to visit Ireland and her pubs. Since my trip to Ireland I’ve become impressed with Folliard’s ability to bring authentic Irish spirit to the United States. So, when I heard that Folliard was selling his successful Twin Cities pubs (Kieran’s, The Liffey, The Local and Cooper) and developing a brand-new Irish Whiskey, I had to learn more.
In this video, Folliard talks to me about entrepreneurship, developing new liquor products, overcoming challenging regulations and working with the last independent distillery in Ireland, Cooley Distillery. Folliard’s positive attitude and can-do spirit are inspirational to entrepreneurs of all ages.
2 Gingers is launching this month in Minneapolis! Please enjoy 2 Gingers responsibly.
