The Nano Distillery is a compilation of how-to chapters and real-life experiences of distillers who successfully produce quality spirits on a small scale. Complete with formulas, spreadsheets, and first-person accounts The Nano Distillery is intended to provide you with enough information to roll up your sleeves and get distilling. Chapters include the necessary considerations of operating a distillery and making spirits--legalities, equipment, record-keeping, recipes, trademarking and design. And finally, you'll hear the voices of nano distillers themselves, who explain what's worked for them and what hasn't.

The information here is invaluable and reads much like a series of mini-workshops on distilling and the business of distilling.
