It’s Valentine’s Day, and who better to explain his passion for making whisky than Rifino Valentine of Valentine Distilling. His Woodward Ltd. Bourbon is named after Detroit’s legendary Woodward Avenue, which runs just a couple of blocks away from his distillery in the suburb of Ferndale, Michigan. Valentine is preparing to move from his original site to a brand-new facility in Ferndale, and is part of a craft distilling boom in the Detroit area. We’ll talk with Rifino Valentine and his head distiller, Justin Aden, on this week’s WhiskyCast In-Depth. There are plenty of new whiskies to talk about this week, and we’ll also have more tasting notes from the #28DramsIn28Days project.
