In this episode, we chat with RB Wolfensberger, head distiller
at Gray Wolf Craft Distilling, about his new American Agave Spirit:
Some of the topics we discus
his new American agave spirit - called “Lobo” - fits in with the
other products in the Gray Wolf portfolio, which we taste and nose
as we go.
differences between using an agave heart or “pina” vs. using an
agave nectar as the base for a distilled spirit.
barrel aging agave spirits is traditionally very different than
most other barrel-aging approaches, and what RB is doing to kinda
shake things up and set his product apart.
challenges of introducing a non-tequila, non-mezcal agave spirit
into an American market that takes comfort in traditional agave
categories and classifications.
on-air cocktail demo using the Lobo to make a dry, refreshing riff
on an agave Manhattan.
