5 Best Local Pemberton Comfort Foods (& Drink)
Pemberton has long been known for the
quality of its potatoes. But it wasn't until Tyler and Jonathan
Schramm decided to distill their organic potatoes and turn them
into premuim organic small batch vodka that things
got really interesting. To do this right, Tyler went to Scotland
for his Masters thesis in Brewing & Distilling at Heriot-Watt
University in Edinburgh, Scotland. Together, they
started the distillery in 2008, and by 2009, Tyler had hand
distilled his first batch. Today, they are well known for their
creations, and will be featured in this year's Cornucopia, on
November 17 in Whistler.
