“the finest bourbon ever made”

And self has never heard of it.

Stitzel-Weller is considered by connoisseurs the finest bourbon ever made, smooth and complex. After the Van Winkle family lost the distillery in 1972, and it was sold, some new corporate owners changed the distilling process to save money and now that taste can never be re-created. Even the precious self-propagated yeast was abandoned in the name of progress. Powdered yeast is easier to manage and carries less risk of cross contamination, but while it always works, it doesn’t have the same complexities.

Something infinitely precious was lost, yeah?

Self doesn’t even drink, but she can recognize tragic loss when she happens upon it.

Stay safe, dear blog readers. Stay safe.
