MIDDLEBURY — Chuck Burkins and Lars Hubbard met 17 years ago and began brewing beer together as a hobby. Next month, they hope to roll out their first barrel of whiskey at their new distillery in Middlebury.
“Distilling is something that’s fun, and we love things that taste good,” Hubbard said. “There’s chemistry involved. We had to do a lot of MacGyvering to make things work.”
