Two Roads to Asylum

A few weeks ago at a jazz concert, we sampled local gin, vodka and whiskey. Today we visited the Asylum Distillery in Bridgeport for a 4 PM tour. We decided to add-on a visit to Two Roads; we've been meaning to check that out for a long time.

We tasted five beers at Two Roads. then five spirits: vodka. gin, corn whiskey, aged corn whiskey, ginger flavored vodka (a win-win for us) at Asylym. Perhaps the best part was tasting some of the flavorings the distillery was testing: cinnamon, cucumber, caraway, coriander, cardamom, lemongrass. Everyone correctly guessed cinnamon; a few of us got cucumber. No one guessed caraway (and I love rye bread with caraway seeds.) It was a fun afternoon.
