Distilled Board Game
Dr Inkwell Card 70119542438__CB5981F4-7C6A-4615-8B0E-1FEC49B97A30_edited.jpg


During the pandemic, I worked with creator Dave Beck to help produce this board game in which players compete to build the best distillery. I advised on spirits-making details, wrote the fun and humorous flavor text to the cards, and added some atmosphere and background about the industry. And now I'm on one of the cards! Check out this highly rated on Board Game Geek game or order a copy yourself!

People at a distillery


Doctor Inkwell created Boozephreaks with Vitamin V. In 2006, he was curious about the differences between vodkas. After inviting 30 people to blind taste, rate and notate 30 vodkas, our good Doctor declared it to be the first Boozephreaks event. We've maintained that scientific curiosity and research-based approach since then. We currently have quarterly, monthly and weekly meetings to taste spirits, create cocktails, tour distilleries, invent new cocktail techniques and meet local bartenders. We're always looking to be social so sign up for our mailing list today!
