Why couldn't Columbia land a company like this? --Charles Marshburn
With more people with vision, we could. Time was, we had a fair number of mini-distilleries. Some were so small they only sold a sant or a half-sant at a time, on the honor system. One left one's money on a designated stump in the woods, walked away and came back later to get the product. -EW
