VIDEO: Behind the Scenes of Raff Distillerie on Treasure Island
From The Joy of Drinking on Jun 28, 2013
Like most San Franciscans, we don’t really make it out much to Treasure Island. I admit it: Inside, I’ve always wished it were a tropical haven of pirates and free chests of gold. It is actually a man-made island off the Bay Bridge that once served as an airport in 1939, then became a naval base, and now is a growing residential area. But what brought us to Treasure Island was something very different: Raff Distillerie—a local spirits maker of absinthe, gin, and rum.
To sum up Carter’s story, we’ve made a video (shown below). For the full story, check out our post at The Joy of Drinking. I hope you enjoy!
