Four local distilleries offering a taste of Louisiana’s spirit | Entertainment/Life

The spirits that roam in Louisiana are sometimes sweet, other times spicy. Some stick around for a while and others are quick to leave. Nevertheless, there are plenty — and we’re not talking about ghostly spirits. 

Baton Rouge alone is home to distilleries with spirits like rum, vodka, bourbon and more.
