You probably associate cognac with France, but what about gin-style spirits?
For this episode, we talk to two American women, living in Provence, who have started making spirits with the local ingredients. We discuss what the local terroir means for their products, their artisanal approach and revival of historical traditions as well as their experiences making spirits as expat females in an industry that is predominantly male and French.
