12 Nov 2021
In 2018, a family in Branch, La. started making spirits from rice. Now, J.T. Meleck vodka is a Louisiana household name.
The distillery is now adding whiskey to their repertoire, which is what they wanted to make from the beginning.
The family business dates back to 1896, according to their website, when J.T. Meleck was synonymous with rice farming.
