Our episode this week goes on the road to the Central Coast of California - in San Luis Obispo County. There's been a recent booze boom in this already thriving wine country, with nearly a dozen distilleries now forming a Paso Robles Distillery Trail. The wine makers turned distillers I spoke with shared how SLO may be one of the most exciting new regions for spirits production in the country. Interviews: Alex and Monica Villicana from Re:Find Distillery and Joe Barton and Stephen Kroener of KROBAR Craft Distillery. This week's cocktail recipe was inspired by a drink I had at Fish Gaucho in Paso Robles, made entirely of local ingredients. It was one of my absolute favorites on this trip, "The Highwayman".
