Advanced/exotic distilling

Lance Winters, at St. George Spirits in Alameda CA, distills crazy things.

Eaux-de-vie is unaged distilate. He has distilled crab, mushroom, seaweed. For things without enough sugar, he first macerates them in high-alcohol spirits (brandy).

He learned more from old perfume books than old distilling books.
