【Rhum de la Péninsule BOSO】

Deepen your knowledge of distilling and familiarize yourself with a life of enjoying spirits.
Distillery Class, a podcast on the theme of "distilling" run by distiller Hiroshi Eguchi, has released a new episode.

In this 10th episode, we talk with Taisei Aoki and Rie Aoki of Rhum de la Péninsule BOSO, which grows sugarcane in Minami-Boso and is launching a distillery to make rum from the sugarcane.
We had a relaxing chat in their self-made sauna with them after their training at mitosaya in preparation for the opening of their distillery.
The story of how they took over the sugarcane fields in Minami-Boso to start the distillery project, and the differences in production methods and flavors of different rum-producing regions around the world.
Please also enjoy the sound of the occasional resounding rum rumming.
