For this week’s episode of Beards, Booze, and Bacon: The Manual Podcast, the round-table takes the show out of the studio and into the distillery — the Aria Gin distillery in Portland, Oregon.

Editor-in-Chief Cator Sparks, Food and Spirits Editor Sam Slaughter, Content Producer Jake Rossman, and host Greg Nibler sat down with Ryan Csanky and Erik Martin from Aria Gin to discuss (what else?) all things gin. From what it takes to start a distillery to the differences in styles of gin (and the variety of botanicals that could go into each one) to what it’s like to spill a gin cocktail in a Lamborghini, the group covered just about everything you could want to know about this spirit.

Love gin? Then this episode is the one for you.
