Founder / Writer


Hi, I’m Tristan and I’ve been distilling for more than 12 years now. I built my first still from an old beer keg and some copper pipe, and now have more distilling hardware than I care to admit! My favorite cocktail is a Negroni.

My passion is gin, but I’ve been dabling in some whiskey making recently too.
