Create a Craft Spirit with The Spirit Guild's Head Distiller Morgan McLachlan
Morgan McLachlan, the head distiller at The Spirit Guild, transforms locally-grown fruit into a variety of fine spirits. Watch the magic unfold firsthand as she fires up a bespoke 250-gallon copper pot still and uses her science and judgment to make the right "cuts", separating the new spirit's "hearts" from its "heads" and "tails". Yes, tasting is an important part of the process. In addition, you'll get to take home a bottle of your choice.
A distillation takes time. For those who want to experience all of the shifts in flavor over the course of a run, it is recommended that you sign up for a full 8 hours.
