Ralph Hayes http://kcur.org en Local Distilleries http://kcur.org/post/local-distilleries <p>Socializing and drinking go hand in hand, and across the United States the hobby of making your own beer and wine has grown in the last few decades. But when it comes to liquor, the law makes it much more difficult to home brew whiskey, vodka or rum as a hobby, and as a result there are very few local distilleries across the nation.&nbsp; We're joined by three special distilleries: <strong>Patrick Garcia</strong> the master distiller at <a href="http://www.dhdistillery.com/">Dark Horse Distillery</a> in Lenexa, Kansas; <strong>Ralph Hayes</strong> the marketing director for <a href="http://pinckneybend.com/">Pinckney Bend</a> distillery out of New Haven, Missouri; and <strong>Seth Fox</strong> president of <a href="http://highplainsinc.com/">High Plains</a> in Atchison, Kansas<br>&nbsp;</p><p></p><p> Tue, 16 Apr 2013 21:00:01 +0000 Maria Carter, Matthew Long-Middleton & Claire McInerny 35305 at http://kcur.org Local Distilleries
