HOW TO FAT WASH:
 

To fat wash a spirit, simply combine melted fat (ghee in this case) to a spirit at room temperature. Once it’s infused for at least a couple of hours, place it in the freezer until the fat solidifies and you can seperate fat from spirit. Strain with a cheesecloth and enjoy within a few days.
