A compulsion to design systems and an obsession with learning, human interaction and productivity have defined Taylor Harvey's 10 years of professional/ entrepreneurial life. Taylor started with temporary spaces to intentionally improve learning and productivity outcomes through curated interactions, hackathons and innovation workshops for large companies and educational institutions. More recently, he's moving towards more permanent spaces where he can implement long term impact within an ecosystem, a maker space in Chicago and now a code camp in Leipzig.

On this episode, we continue our jaunt thru the LSM range of high quality spirits this time adding the Minz °9 spirit to the mix!  

A total of nine botanical specialties, including wormwood and raspberry spirit, ensure a full body and fruitiness. In combination with herbal extracts as well as the in-house manufactory Vodka, a composition arises, which stands out from the classical Pfeffi. Enjoying the mint ° 9 at room temperature in small sips, unfolds its complex character, on ice it becomes fresh and clear. The mint °9 is not made with artificial or natural flavorings, but only with extracts and distillates, which are obtained directly from the corresponding herbs, spices and berries. Also, the color is pure chlorophyll from the peppermint and no artificial dye.
