I love the process of things in the making, whether through photography, food, surfing, winemaking or, at Anchor Distillery, whiskey distilling. Catch a great story on the craft in the Fall issue of Whiskey Advocate.
Craft whiskey distilling got off to an uneven start in America. There were a couple of early pioneers 20 years back and more, like Anchor, Clear Creek, and St. George, that we were quite excited about at the time. Microbrewing was taking off, now it was going to be microdistilling, and every town would soon have a brewery and a distillery—at least one—making wonderful stuff that every right-thinking person would drink all the time." - Lew Bryson, writer
