June’s meeting was hosted by Dushan Zaric and Simon Ford of the 86 Co. They revealed the inspiration for and process behind their spirits including Tequila Cabeza, Aylesbury Duck Vodka, Cana Brava Rum and Fords Gin. A huge thank you to these gentlemen for coming out and sharing with us for the evening!
