What goes into opening a distillery? From troubleshooting boilers to priming pumps, Bridget Firtle has gotten a lot of training she never expected to while opening “The Noble Experiment”, a distillery in NYC. On this week’s episode of The Speakeasy, Damon Boelte chats with Bridget about opening a distillery, making rum and making moves in the craft spirits industry. If things like sourcing molasses and Island rum variations interest you, then you’ve found the right show to listen to. Today’s program was sponsored by Catskill Provisions
