Listen: Honey, Sherry, United States discussed on The Four Top
"Of spirit barrels. Oh, wow. That sounds delicious and age them. So it's fun. And it is delicious. And I love it. What's it called the barrel to be that? How long does the Honey stand barracks anywhere between four to seven months? Wow. How does it change? Honey. It changes the Honey in the sense that it pulls a lot of the barrel character. But also depends on what spirit is in there. So and sometimes it changes it in very interesting ways. I like to say, it's a matchmaker. Sometimes I end up with a marriage, and sometimes I end up with Honey and a spirit barrel that are just like to just buddies kind of thing like they're so very distinctive. And then someone's like, we're being invited to a wedding because they meld it. So well, it's like one being and it just depends. Sometimes it's a you don't wanna go to heavy on the spirits, but you also won't wanna go to heavy on the Honey has to have good bones and not all Honey house good bones to handle being in a barrel for that. And say you make your own Honey. I do I am a beekeeper. But I do not make enough Honey. An urban beekeeper. So I really actually loved the idea and the necessary -ness of having pollinators whether they'd be Honey bees or Mason bees or swept knees, creating a habitat that allows us to kind of flourish bees. And learning about them helps me demystify the scariness of bees and being stung. That's what it is in your neighbors don't want either. I actually don't keep my house. I keep them out and other places because I'm really interested in Terre were hunters like amber in the sense that it's a amazing snapshot of terror war a place and time and space that you can taste it. It's like you can taste history. I I like to make money with us Honey for a lot of things. But I also despair at them for me. That's where the magic happens is trying to find a good barrel. That's going to impart some amazing flavors that you weren't expecting. Like, there's one that tastes like. Pumpkin spice old-fashioned, if you can imagine that. What about Sherry barrels? I've ever used so hands on. Yes. It is. And they're really have to be fresh. And by the time, we get Sherry barrels here. They're fairly dry. Not very and wine and beer are not the best barrels because of contaminants. So interesting Magyar you thinking about Honey cocktails right now. See exactly something beyond the traditional bee's knees. Because that's what everybody also even just it's like an ice tea situations. The hunting could make the pope, they make an awesome photons. That idea. Well, in this connects to the fact that we all basically have I have four jobs how many jobs, do you? Go. Down the only three now. Come motherhood head. Oh, yeah. Sure. Then I have five. I just like to work for myself. So I just do a lot under one job. But I mean, you basically, I mean, you went to the world Sherry competition. You could you could just be Sherry. We were. Runners up for the US team for the couple of their hearts. So next next time. They do it every two years time. Now that I've been there I understand how operates just had to do little research. Now, I know what they're looking for. I'm gonna kill it. I mean, I think we all love working in this business, but you have to work really hard in order to kind of make ends meet in this, very fun. Business would you'll agree. Absolutely. It's hard to. Sustain living with passion. Yeah. Passion paid bills. I would be it'd be all paid up with everybody. Yeah. Yeah. So you do kind of have to find a way to be creatively hustling. But also the same time maintaining. Your life, and Wendy,."
