A variety of stories were told and a few of those are featured in this episode. The stories range from deeply personal to comedic, and there are moments when the event invades the story booth.

The Drink Tank – CHRIS WELD/BERKSHIRE MOUNTAIN DISTILLERY

cweld_still07-199x300

Chris Weld of Berkshire Mountain Distilling

Drink Tank host Gibson Thomas, publisher and editor of edible Marin & Wine Country, talks to Chris Weld, distiller and owner Berkshire Mountain Distillers in Sheffield, Massachusetts. Chris, a biochemist by education and experience, started distilling when he and his family bought a small farm near Sheffield.  The farm was home to an apple orchard, a sugar bush and a natural spring producing some of the finest waters in the country, inspiring Chris to put his biochemistry knowledge to some very useful “work.” The first legal (aka permitted) distillery in the Berkshires since the end of Prohibition, BMD hand crafts bourbon, corn whiskey, rum, vodka and several varieties of gin.  Its Greylock gin was named the #1 sales_pgs_Page_4-300x232craft gin in the country by a tasting panel from the New York Times. Chris and Gibson discuss the growing craft distilling movement and the complicated issue of sourcing ingredients – what do you do if local does not also mean organic, sustainable or non-GMO, and do those matter in a distilled spirit? To learn more about BMD, including where to find their products and their new distillery and tasting room in Sheffield, visit BerkshireMountainDistillers.com.
