What’s shakin, cocktail fans?
Welcome to Episode 101 of The Modern Bar Cart Podcast!
Thanks for joining us for another terrific interview episode, where we ambush some of the best and brightest spirits and cocktail experts and threaten them with a good time until they share all their closest held secrets.
This time around, we hang out with our friends Max and Eli from the Baltimore Spirits Company, and they share some of their extremely special juice while we talk Mezcal and Amaro.
Some of the things we discuss include:
Why brewers make great distillers, and how a dialed in focus on fermentation can enhance the quality of a distilled spirits program.
How Max and Eli took traditional mezcal distilling methods and adapted them for making smoked fruit brandies that pay homage to the ancient mezcal tradition and the terroir of the Mid-Atlantic.
What the heck it means when you see “PECHUGA” on a bottle of mezcal – believe me, you won’t want to miss this.
How to build out your mezcal and amaro collections in a fiscally and environmentally responsible manner
And much, much more.
