Starting Your Own Distillery
Over these last several years, craft distilling has been taking off all around the country, and now some amazing products are being made by local producers that are taking the liquor industry by storm. Not only are many of these distillers making innovative and interesting new products, but they are fundamentally changing the way America thinks about spirits.
Laura Johnson, of You & Yours Co. Distilling, is one of these new distillers on the scene and is blazing her own trail with a DIY attitude, and some delicious products to boot. After graduating from college in 2014, Johnson realized that working a 9 to 5 behind a desk was just not in the cards for her.
So tune in, as we find out how she went from spirits lover to founding her own distillery. Her story is pretty awesome, so we hope you guys dig it.
This week we talk about creating homemade liqueurs, barrel-aged gin, and going to Cuba illegally.
New episodes will be up every week. Much love, and thank you for tuning in!
