That’s good for Maker’s Mark and Tito, etc.
On the other hand, no pun intended, it is not so hard to see what “handmade” is not. We still have a battle of those two poles. A few months back, I spoke on this very topic at the ADI conference in Louisville. The PowerPoint is here. As it turns out, the U.S. and TTB have little to nothing by way of a solid definition. Other big countries don’t fare much better.
Note: for the heck of it, I just want to note that this post is written aboard the 7 am train from Lisbon to Porto. Perhaps I will learn a little something about handmade dessert wines.
