So, I've spent the better part of this past year and some change distilling professionally, but am now very curious about studying in Europe. If anyone has opportunities for receiving a lowly, manic, amateur distiller abroad… well…

I'm quite interested.

And yes, I am very much alive, and miss all my brothers in Absinthe.

Has that always been your signature line, or did you just plug it in for this topic?

Always has been.
David bought a little shack in the country and was hoping for guest distillers, meet you there?

Hey Grim! Long time no see you!

Actually, we are going to resize our whole distillery and warehouse in next few weeks. Our current setup is 2 x 300l alembics but I've already placed order for a brand new, custom made alembics from Arnold Holstein which will be used just for gin and absinthe distilling. And having 4x300l alembics require spare hands.

Wanna spend some time in Czech republic? :)

Sounds like fun, as does David's place.

Not always, but post-Tisserand.

Mais tu n'es pas significatif. Bien sûr, tu as été congédié ?

I probably would have been, eventually. But no, I stepped away. I don't think we're on bad terms, but I know that when you put a man in a situation where he has to plead with someone to do something the right way… well, the seed is sown for discontent. And I confirmed something for myself, I learned something about myself, and I learned a lot about distilling. So, I'm sated at that.

Most people don't care about the right way, only the practical one.

And for business, the quickest and least costly the better for the bottom line.

Fleeting fads aside, it's about a century too late for the bottom line to have any relevance to producing Absinthe. You won't get rich on it, no matter how good (or cheap to make and shitty) it is.

I didn't think absinthe was the focus there, just craft distilling in general.

I suppose that would make a bit of difference, then.

If you are interested in making Vodka in Scotland let me know and I'll shoot you the details.
