Max Lents of The Baltimore Spirits Company

John has a chat with Max Lents, one of the founders of the incredible Baltimroe Spirits Company. They talk about what it was like getting the distillery up and running, how Max found his passion and why there is a barrel of something-that-shall-not-be-named lurking in the aging room. They also talk about their favorite products (gin, rye, brandy, punch) from the distillery and what John learned at a tasting there. Thanks for listening!!
