He went from school superintendent to whiskey distiller. In this week’s culinary adventure, Donna Britt introduces us to one of the founders of new basin distilling company in Madras to find out exactly what goes in to their small-batch craft spirits.
Move over Kentucky! Rick Molitor is making some delicious whiskey along with their first cut vodka and stagger gin, all now available in Central Oregon liquor stores. Donna also tried their Madras mule made with their strong whiskey and fresh Madras mint.
You can stop by New Basin Distilling Tuesday through Saturday for tours and tastings and also find them online at newbasin.com.
A special thanks to Newport Avenue Market, who gives us the resources to take these weekly culinary adventures. Life is short. Eat good food. And have fun doing it.
