Mike, laws pertaining to spirits are still antiquated. Beer and wine are treated differently. Still against the law to produce spirits for home use without a permit. Crazy.

All whiskey is required by law to be barrel aged before it is considered whiskey. No amount of aging is specified but a min. of 2 years is standard. This is why most micros(as I will) also make gin,vodka,shine, rum etc.. as these do not have the same requirement.

Thanks for the ideas. Sneffels is one of my favorite peaks.

There might be no minimum time specified for aging whiskey, but there is certainly a minimum of 3 years of aging for Whisky ;)

Very true, different beast from way to the east.
U.S. law does not differentiate between the two.

A free bottle for suggesting the name for the potentially next Jack Daniels? Ha!

You better up it to a free barrel, son.



Just a bottle?

The gal who penned the Nike swoosh originally got 35 bucks. You better up it to a keg, bro.

Also can use spruce tips. Look for the light green soft juicy tender ones in the spring, at the very tip of the branch.
