cowdery Posted February 4, 2012 Share Posted February 4, 2012 Micro-distillers seem to be taking one of two paths. The majority, it seems, want to try their hand at as many different distillates and final products as possible, perhaps even going so far as to follow a "never make the same thing twice" philosophy. The other, minority, path is to make the same thing every day, with a devotion to continuing quality improvement of course, but essentially making one product or, perhaps, one product with a small number of variations or expressions. Garrison Brothers in Texas falls into the second camp. Wyoming Whiskey does as well. Both, it so happens, are making wheated bourbon. Stranahan's falls into this category as well, making malt whiskey. Every day they make the same product and fill barrels with it. Wyoming, which just started to distill in 2009, hasn't sold a drop yet. Garrison and Stranahan's have. I believe there are others, such as Phil Prichard, who make one product perhaps 95% of the time, but who dabble in a few other things as well. Off the top of my head, I can't think of anyone else who is following the "make the same thing every day" path, at least where that 'same thing' is whiskey. Who am I missing?
