Ayla Besemer is a Colorado-based freelance writer who spent her young adulthood traveling aboard a boat, so she knows that craft spirits are a way to taste the land and connect with communities. Ayla studied journalism at Yale University, and when she’s not sipping spirits, she teaches ocean science.
