Hewn Spirits
After 25 years of restoring and converting early American barns into unique custom homes, and an 8-year spiritual odyssey into the restoration of an 80-year-old Alaskan wooden fishing boat, I had become deeply passionate about historic things old and wooden. That love of hewn objects, coupled with, among other things, a small still I received from my crew of timber framers one Christmas, led me down the path into the forbidden art of distillation. Inevitably my new-found fascination with distilling collided with my love of old wood and good whiskey and an idea was borne…. Why not experiment and study the effects of various old, rare and even extinct woods on the aging process of different spirits?
