About Craft Distilling: Making liquor
legally at home:
Hobby distilling has become more and more popular in the past few years. However, there is still a lot of confusion about the legalities around the distillation of liquor. The author of the new book Craft Distilling: Making Liquor Legally at Home explains the facts around legal distilling, plus provides an overview of how to make high-quality distilled spirits on a small scale. In addition, she is working with a Washington state legislator to change the laws for hobby distillers. This is an informative, fun workshop for anyone interested in distilling liquor.
