Craft spirits are the fastest growing segment of the local beverage industry. Get inside this exploding business with visits to Pinckney Bend, a distillery that is working with heritage varieties of corn, plus Missouri Spirits, a distillery that has grown exponentially since launching in 2011 and now boasts a bar and restaurant where spirit lovers can indulge. After a barrel-fermented stop at StilL 630 in St. Louis, we’ll also visit Montelle Winery, where grappa and brandy are distilled, as well as eau de vie made with fruit grown on site. Spirits flavor more than cocktails and in the kitchen, host Cat Neville will whip up a rustic apple galette with an easy-to-make whiskey caramel.
