Tales of the Cocktail and Drunken Botany with Amy Stewart

“The connection between medicine and alcohol is very powerful because when we [learned we] could distill alcohol, we could store plants in a bottle for medicinal purposes. The general public has very little sense that what we are doing is taking plants and putting them in bottles. There’s an interesting split between the horticultural and botanical world, farmers, and everyone here [the cocktail industry].”
