Self education over the last ten years has turned Stephen into a full fledged beverage technologist and highly sought out technical historian amassing the largest collection of advanced technical writings on the topic of distillation with very significant amounts of first time digitized documents.
The status of the bostonapothecary is basically building a large fortune elsewhere to eventually turn it into a small one later in life running a boundary pushing boutique distillery. Current topics studied are advanced pragmatic spirits analysis for small distilleries and the application of modern bio technology practices to small productions.
Stephen is a beverage generalist capable of comparatively contextualizing products, their sensory evaluation, and production techniques across categories. This allows knowledge from one category to not exist in a bubble, but advance understanding of another.
The machine shop is still producing the bostonapothecary line of pilot plant carbonating equipment with enthusiastic usage around the world.
