I premi alle migliori microdistillerie americane

Di microdistillerie, soprattutto in ambito americano, vi abbiamo parlato alcune volte. L’interesse per me è abbastanza grande, essendo affascinato proprio dalla distillazione, che penso sia una delle poche operazioni che ancora ha un fascino quasi alchemico. Gli USA come sempre sono avanti e il movimento è in vorticosa ascesa, tant’e’ che American Distilling Institute da sei anni premia le migliori che producono “small batch” di whiskey o altri distillati. Ecco la classifica, non sono sicuramente di facile reperibilita’, ma se andaste a farvi un viaggio….aiutereste a colmare le mie mancanze.

Si puo’ notare come la Corsair Artisan Distillery abbia vinto molti premi tra i distillati di cereali e che l’accoppiata microdistilleria-microbirrificio, come Rogue famoso anche in Europa, inizi a produrre anche tra gli spirits qualche prodotto interessante.
