1512 Barbershop? Where Did This Come From?
Just met with a representative for 1512 Spirits today, a little outfit that has been making illegal moonshine for three generations. From what I've heard (from them and from others) the guy behind this project is a distillation genius. Can't wait to meet him. I just pre-ordered four cases of their newest white rye batch coming out in a few weeks. Word is they may have some older stuff hiding away as well. Mike Barber of our SF store actually met him at his barber shop a few years back and traded him some wine for booze. This guy still works as a barber five days a week in SF and distills at night in Sonoma County. In any case, Mike said the spirits are the real deal. We'll have 48 bottles of this 100% white rye in a few weeks. It's very, very good. I hope it's an indication of what is to come. I plan on doing plenty o' business with 1512.
