“In Craft Distilling, author Victoria Redhed Miller leads us on a wonderfully intoxicating journey that answers the question of why distill spirits at home with eloquence and clarity that only a passionate practitioner can offer. With Miller’s help we come to understand just why it is that most of us can’t legally make spirits for ourselves, and she makes a wonderful case for why we should be able to do just that! Set the history aside for a spell and Craft Distilling delves deeply into the science of alcohol distillation and sets you up with everything from detailed recipes for your favorite liquors and insight on constructing your own still. Craft Distilling is as important for dreamers and practitioners as it is for policy makers, and it belongs on the shelf of everyone who has anything to do with the production and consumption of distilled spirits.”
—Hank Will, Editorial Director, Ogden Publications
“The joy of creating spirits at home is a great incentive for learning a little chemistry, and Victoria makes the chemistry fun!”
— Bryan Welch, Mother Earth News, and CEO, B the Change Media
