Podcast Episode #03 – Itsara Ounnarath – White Tiger Distillery

Devin Mills talks with Itsara Ounnarath, President of White Tiger Distillery, producers of the ONLY rice-based whisky in the United States!

Itsara talks about his family’s history in coming from Laos and how that has inspired what they produce at his distillery. Located in Forest Hill, Maryland (outside of Baltimore), the distillery offers tours and has a tasting room.

This is a very cool conversation about the history of booze in Laos, the traditions of who used to make the liquor, and how rice as an ingredient can be very different. (This interview was recorded via the web a number of weeks ago, so please excuse some of the audio tweaks on Itsara’s portion.)

Check out all the details below.
