Commercial Spirits to Home Brew Flavour Conversions

top shelf cream liquers

Written by Jason

I was a customer of KegThat and after meeting Ben a few times he asked could he bring the family around to see my micro distillery setup. After a few entertaining evenings sampling spirits, throwing ideas and recommendation’s at them, they asked me and my partner to join the business and bring our enthusiasm on distilling to strengthen the spirit side. I work in the day for a lovely family run Healthcare company as an IT Manager and know how important the customer is and the service we provide.
