The Modern Bar Cart Podcast

Oct 5, 2017

In this episode, Eric interviews distiller Peter Ahlf of Mt. Defiance Cidery and Distillery.

Peter is a really fascinating guy with an eclectic professional background and a passion for making great spirits.

Some of the things we discuss in this episode include:

  • How a NASA engineer-turned-carpenter applies his skills to distilling
  • How to transform a gas station office into a steampunk tasting room
  • The history and regulatory intricacies of misfit spirits like absinthe and cassis
  • The process of developing flavor profiles in liqueurs and vermouths
  • What to drink during the “Green Hour” in Paris
  • And much, much more

You can, of course, visit the show notes page to grab the social media handles for Mt. Defiance Cidery & Distillery, and I really hope some of you get the chance to check out their awesome facilities in Middleburg sometime.
