In 2006, I was introduced to Thai Palace in Holland, MI. Nine years later, I still get the same order, Gang Kiew Wan with Chicken- Medium spice, and a half order of Baby Egg Rolls. The only thing that has changed over the years is what I have to drink with the meal. Back in the day, my drink of choice was cheap, American beer. After that, I really started to appreciate craft and international beer. But since I started working at Coppercraft, spirits have taken over my pallet; specifically Gin and Tonics. They are refreshing and light. It pairs perfectly with a heavier meal such as my Gang Kiew Wan. The citrus from the lime and the botanicals from the Gin bring out the spices of Thai food, maybe muddle a little basil for a dramatic twist? Unfortunately, Thai Palace doesn’t have Coppercraft, I’ll work on it and imagine what a G&T would taste like at Thai Palace if it was made with Coppercraft Gin. With the 13 botanicals that Coppercraft blends, it really would be the best of both worlds.

So many things to think about… Recently – I have been pondering what makes a Coppercraft experience truly a unique and memorable experience or as I like to say a Coppercraft experience? There were recent times where I was reminded that starting a distillery is no easy task. I learned – sometimes the hard way […]
