A couple of guys, Andrew Weir and Nicholas Pollacchi, from The Balvenie Distillery in Scotland, are touring the U.S in a hand made Morgan car. Along the way the boys are highlighting artisans who work with their hands as they continue the tradition of craft in America.
Unfortunately their route does not take them through Minnesota, but they have recognized two workshops in the state and, wait for it . . . , one of them is the letterpress jobbing shop, The Nomadic Press.
Although I keep my whisky drinking and hand-fed press operation separated, I do enjoy a bump now and again and am pleased to be recognized by this adventurous duo.
You can stop by their website (<http://www.thebalvenie.com/en-us/roadshow/>) and enjoy a shot of old-worldliness or, if you’re in the neighborhood of the Nomadic Press, stop in and say hi.
