Stray Dog Wild Gin ft. Johnny Livanos
29:19Johnny Livanos is the founder of Stray Dog Wild Gin, a gin company that focuses on a unique blend of wild botanicals native to Greece’s hills and mountains, which are then mixed with Mediterranean citrus and pure spring water. He is also a 3rd generation Greek-American restaurateur, who is part of a proud New York family that owns and runs several acclaimed venues in Manhattan and Westchester NY, including Oceana, Molyvos, Ousia, Moderne Barn and City Limits. We talk about how his idea for the company came about in his own ah-ha moment, how he came up with the name "Stray Dog Wild Gin," being on ABC's TV Series "Family Food Fight", and his younger days as a university student at Cornell University and Culinary Institute of America. This episode will give you in-depth and comprehensive introduction to the world of gin and greek spirits.
