I like this idea. Caer Coburn Scotch seems like a natural.

It is interesting that we are returning to the past to find solutions for the future.

Making whisky (spelling is correct) is a time honored tradition for small farmers, from the Scots and the Irish in the 16th Century, to the PA farmers of the Whisky Rebellion in the 18th century, to the moonshiners, past and present, making whisky has been a great revenue source for small farmers.

FYI, you also need a distillery license to make ethanol.
