Wine may be our first love, but rum will always be our favorite mistress. We took a field trip to the Stable in St. Louis’ Historic Lemp District where Amalgamated Brewing’s Jake Jones has been distilling Rum, Ouzo, Absinthe, and a peach corn whiskey he’s calling Porn! (yes we finally get to tag a post with the keyword “porn”). Join us as Jake walks us through his process, and explains why making booze might just be the best job ever. It’s big ideas and small batches here at WineChat.TV.
