Quench! – Kosher Wine

For Jews and non-Jews alike, kosher wine is a topic filled with many preconceptions and misconceptions, beginning with the age-old jokes about Mogen David and Manischewitz. . A number of consumers are ignorant of the process by which a wine is made kosher. Many others only see kosher wine being sold at holiday time, and don’t regard it as a product they might consume every day. In fact, there are any number of outstanding kosher wines, and you don’t have to be observant—or even Jewish—to drink them. Mark speaks with Alan Kratish of Prince Distributors in Miami, who sells the portfolio of the Royal Wine Company, the largest distributor of kosher wine in the U.S. On Bizarre Beverage News, Mark investigates the theft of 65 cases of the legendary Pappy Van Winkle bourbon from the Buffalo Trace warehouse in Kentucky—was it an inside job?
