Hear from the authors of Brooklyn Spirits: Craft Distilling and Cocktails from the World’s Hippest Borough on a brand new episode of The Speakeasy. In the popular tradition of farm-to-table cookbooks, Brooklyn Spirits: Craft Distilling and Cocktails from the World’s Hippest Borough, is the first distillery-to-glass cocktail book. Organized into chapters focused on these distilleries, each chapter will take an in-depth look at the distillery’s story and the spirits they offer, and will present half-a-dozen cocktail recipes. Within these chapters, there will be sub-sections on several varying topics: a look at the bars and restaurants serving the Brooklyn-produced spirits; highlights on the work of local mixologists; and subsections on the history of distilling in Brooklyn. This program was brought to you by Michters.
“One of the reasons its easy to promote a book like this is we’re promoting really cool work other people are doing. I’m hoping we did a good job capturing it. [06:00]\
“This is a yearbook in a sense. It’s capturing what’s happening right now.” [14:00]
