Made By Hand: The Distiller. A short-film series on hand-made things.

Made by Hand is a new short film series celebrating the people who make things by hand — sustainably, locally, and with a love for their craft.

In the inaugural film, they visit the Breuckelen Distilling Company, the first gin distiller in Brooklyn since prohibition. Founder Brad Estabrooke talks about starting from nothing and the imperfect process of perfecting a craft. His experience bears a lesson for us all: knowing you could fail brings you that much closer to success.
