Today Dave and Nastassia are joined by Nick Strangeway of Hepple Gin. Nick is here for Bar Convent Brooklyn , so say hello if you swing through! Together they tackle lots of aspects of modern distilling, including: vacuum distillation, supercritical gas extraction, and the use of Juniper in Gin. Also, Dave explains the Anti-Tong contingent of chefs for a caller, fields an emergency wedding question about prepping sliced ham for service, and gives a short PSA about broken glass during service.
