I recently had the chance to hang out with the fine folks at Smooth Ambler Spirits in Maxwelton, WV, while producing a short video for the Southern Foodways Alliance. The folks at Smooth Ambler are not only super fun to spend time with, but they also make amazing spirits.
I used some of their yearling bourbon whiskey (full on aged whiskey is on its way!) in my pecan fried pie this week and I love the result. Sweet and rich, which a nice little kick from the whiskey at the end. I'll have pecan pies all week at the farmer's markets!
