A humungous component of my job is reading and participating in the discussions happening online in the spirits community. So you can bet that I’m spending time reading up on the many talented and knowledgeable cocktails and spirits bloggers.
One of my favorite reads from this past week comes from Ryan over at Boozeblogger and his storied attempts at making his own Bourbon at home. But, as one can only imagine, there are innumerable steps of prep work before getting to the booze making itself. Part One of Ryan’s adventure finds him curing the two oak barrels before any spirit can be aged (this all takes place from the comforts of his home bathroom, despite his best attempts to disguise it…).
But, alas, I’ve probably said too much already. Go give Ryan’s story a read.
