Weekend of Whisky in Brightest Young Things

Brightest Young ThingsWe continued to impress with our weekend of whisky!  Farrah Skeiky writes a really nice piece that comes to the heart of what we do.  We are much more than just making whisky.  What we seek to create is a local food movement that integrates every step of the process, from farmers and vintners, to us, the processor/distiller, to the table itself and the great restaurants and resorts that get top-notch, locally sourced food. Of course, Farrah puts it much more elegantly than I can:

After you cut through any and all talking points politicians use about small businesses being the heart of America’s economy, a trip like this makes you realize that it’s unironically true. The main street distillery has used its partnerships to shift the community focus onto eating (and drinking) locally, uses part of their tasting room as a gift shop featuring local craft vendors (like Gordys!), some of which use Roundstone Rye to create their wares, and turns the spotlight onto the potential that Loudon County has always had as well as inspiring that potential in others who want to invest in their town and themselves.
