If you want evidence of the boom in craft distilling, all you need to do is look at registration numbers for the American Distilling Institute’s annual conference each April. This year’s event in Louisville had double the attendance of last year’s…which had double the attendance of the previous year’s…and so on. We’ll hear from some of the craft distillers who have jumped into whisky making with both feet, as well as some of their role models…including Jimmy Russell of Wild Turkey.
