Whiskey Lore show

Summary: Join me as I chat with Kings County Distillery co-founder Colin Spoelman, the author of a curious and entertaining whiskey history book called Dead Distillers. We'll talk about the origins of New York distilling, how Colin started his journey by moonshining in Brooklyn, we'll discuss the "who was the first to make bourbon" question, and discover a history of New York distilling that goes back to the Dutch West India Company.
