On St. Patrick's Day of 2018 a number of us congregated at the Copper Fiddle Distillery in Lake Zurich for a tour, a tasting, and a feast to benefit the extermination of polio. This was arranged by Lyle Staab with able help from Ann Marie. The tour of the small distillery was conducted by Fred Robinson, proprietor who lives in Hawthorn Woods. Educational and entertaining. How a golf pro and his neighbor got into this business and their apparent burgeoning success was fascinating. The samples of the six spirits now produced by Copper Fiddle warmed us up for a fine spread of barbecue and the appropriate accoutrements. Great job, Lyle and Ann Marie. This was a fun and worthwhile outing.
