The aged spirits market is a lucrative one, attracting reverence and loyalty from liquor enthusiasts in equal measure. The flavor profile of distilled spirits is enhanced by the length and method of storing – and the price tag tends to correlate with the length of time in the barrel. But Bryan Davis may have found a shortcut. Davis, founder of the Lost Spirits Distillery and described as “one of the super-stars of Mad Scientist Distillation” (1), has developed a reactor that mimics the aging effect – cutting the processing time by up to 20 years.
