Just like making beer, but different. ;-)

Speaking of that, Berkshire Mountain Distillers collaborates with craft brewers to make whiskeys out of beer.

We did a tasting with the staff, and then got a tour from Jon Height, Plant Manager/ Distiller. It was really interesting and the hand made stills reminded me of steampunk, and the stills we had seen on our trip to Ireland.
