Friday

My gluten intolerance has pretty much killed my beer-drinking ability, so I’ve had to switch to vodka and gin (and will shortly foray into rum, in honor of GKC’s The Flying Inn). It looks like I’m catching the new wave:

Thanks to the growth in the craft beer industry and craft cocktail culture, the craft distilling industry has been growing exponentially in recent years, from barely two dozen microdistillers across the country in 2000 to over 250 in 2012, with dozens more currently seeking federal licensing. Michigan alone has over 30 licensed craft distillers with more in the works, including several in metro Detroit. There is also a Michigan Distillers Guild in the early planning stages, mirroring itself after the Michigan Brewers Guild to be an advocacy group for Michigan’s microdistillers.

    For rum I suggest Zacapa XO. Best I’ve ever had. It’s like cognac. Dang it. Now I want some.
