Rye Dominion - Spotlight on Becky Harris - Tasting Panel

Tasting Panel April May 2020Tasting Panel focuses its attention on Becky Harris in this month's issue of Distillery Spotlight.  What a wonderful article and photos by Matt Jackson and Nick Klein:

[Rebecca] Harris became a trailblazer in the spirits world as one of the first female head distillers in modern U.S. history, yet she’s quick to point out that American distillation’s early success was largely due to the efforts of women. “In this region of the country, the tobacco industry [was] so demanding that women were the ones who took care of the brewing and distilling,” Harris explains. “It really wasn’t until the bigger stills came over from Europe that distillation became more industrial.”
