Drunk-ish History with Talnua Distillery's Patrick and Meagan Miller (E28)
We trekked to Talnua Distillery to talk whiskey and Irish American history with co-owners and co-founders Meagan and Patrick Miller. In addition to tasting the offerings, Patrick gave us one hell of a lesson on spirit-making in Ireland, Scotland, and the United States plus some history of how things all came together to make Talnua a possibility.  Thanks so much to Meagan and Patrick for having us. This was a fun interview to record. Great people up in Arvada, Colorado. We highly recommend finding them there, at bars around town, or on liquor store shelves.
