A portrait of the minds behind Painted Stave Distilling, makers of hand-crafted spirits in Smyrna, Delaware. PaintedStave.com Music: Boy with a Kite - Awake or Sleeping
Two months ago, Painted Stave Distilling in Smyrna made Delaware history when it released the first ever legally made bourbon in the history of the First State.
It was a landmark moment for one of Delaware's first craft distilleries. But no time to rest. Just one week earlier, in mid-November, Painted Stave got to work on a new batch of their history-making spirit.
Painted Stave co-owners Ron Gomes and Mike Rasmussen invited us to take a peek at how the distilling process begins. Along the way, they explained their approach to the liquor-making process.
