Mike Groener

Genius Liquids
Host of Show de Vie with Mike G podcast

Austin’s Mike Groener has been dubbed the “Walter White of Gin”. With the launch of Genius Gin in 2013 (featured in Texas Monthly) The De Terra Collection; the world’s first domestic Sotol released in 2015, and official Drink of Austin Gin, Old Highborn, Groener has quickly changed the climate of Texas spirits while rallying for a paradigm shift in the liquor industry. As an avid spirits writer and fanatic, he continues to sip through the latest creations while continuing to capture the zeitgeist of modern cocktail culture with his podcast Show de Vie.
