Day#3 of Wonder

David, Fort Collins' Distillery Master, living his dream.

David, Fort Collins’ Distillery Master, living his dream.

Today I went on my first Distillery Tour. David, the owner of Feisty Spirits, gives one impressive tour of Fort Collin’s oldest whisky distillery (almost 3 years to the date). His love of the craft is contagious…and he brings to it serious street cred (PHD in engineering and a family background that would make moonshine royalty proud). I asked him if he ever gets surprised when he tastes a batch. He said every batch surprises him.

What a beautiful way to live–develop your craft, and never fail to be surprised.

“I have one talent, and that is the capacity to be tremendously surprised, surprised at life, at ideas. This is to me the supreme Hasidic imperative: Don’t be old. Don’t be stale.” ― Abraham Joshua Heschel
