Defining Moment: this scientist's greatest experiment was opening a whiskey distillery

 

Ten years ago, veteran scientist David Perkins visited the Maker’s Mark facility in Kentucky during vacation. While touring the grounds he had an “a-ha moment”: the equipment at the distillery was very similar to what he worked with in his lab.
