So I kind of took a break from cocktails. Not because I stopped drinking them or making them, but mostly about writing about them. Tales does that to people. But enough of the past, let’s talk about where spirits come from. No, not the bottle store.
Seriously, I thought I knew. Turns out you don’t know much until you start making your own spirits. And that’s what I’ve been doing.
Lots of work has gone in to whiskey/whisky making and it’s getting pretty respectable. But I thought I’d chronicle my rum making. This is my third attempt, and while it’s much more forgiving than whiskey, it’s not without a few challenges either. Watch and learn. There will be plenty of mistakes along the way.
