An Interview with Karen Hoskin – Montanya Distillers

An Interview with Karen Hoskin - Montanya Distillers by the fat rum pirateAn Interview with Karen Hoskin – Montanya Distilers. The World Wide Web throws up all kinds of opportunities for a blogger. So here I am compiling an interview with none other than Karen Hoskin of Montanya Distillers, Colorado in the US of A.

I have actually met Karen (at last years London Rumfest) and Karen was also present at the first European Online Rum Festival earlier this year.
