Welcoming an award-winning distillery and master distillery to The Jewish Drinking Show, I am pleased to share the newest episode. Stephen Gould, the master distiller and proprietor behind Golden Moon Distillery, winner of the 2019 distillery of the year award by the American Distilling Institute, is the featured guest for the show. While numerous products of the company were already certified kosher as of the recording of this episode, since then, almost all of their products have now become certified kosher.
In addition to his work at Golden Moon Distilling, he has been distilling off and on for over 30 years. He lectures and teaches courses on distillation, including use of botanicals in the production of liquors and liqueurs, production of brandies and whiskies, craft-distillery start-ups and the history of spirits. He consults and provides tailored training for distilleries in the U.S., Europe, Asia and the Middle East. He also writes for several industry trade publications, including Distiller Magazine and Artisan Spirit Magazine. He is an experienced whiskey and spirits judge, judging in a variety of spirits competitions in the United States and Europe.
