This week on The Speakeasy, Damon Boelte chats with friend and distiller at Van Brunt Stillhouse, Daric Schlesselman. Tune in to hear what it's like running a small batch distillery and why Grappa got him into this whole business. From sugar to aging, learn about the process of distilling and how different techniques can make different products. This program was sponsored by S. Wallace Edwards & Sons.
"Finishing is a little bit of a challenge for a small distiller. It takes years to have enough mature product to get there. At this point I'm choosing the aging process that I think will do the best for me in the shortest period of time possible."
