Heard from them yesterday and they’re thinking about coming. They make two (apple pie and cherry) moonshines that we’re looking forward to trying.
They both look fantastic and talk about using the local produce to the fullest effect!
Apples and Cherries are just so Yakima!
I got to meet Mike and Carrie Gifford at the Redmond Public Library where Mike gave a talk about distilling. They confirmed that they’re in for our own World Whisky Day celebration in the Redmond Central Connector. Tickets available soon!
