David McCowan

Dave McCowan works in the Physics Instructional Labs at the University of Chicago and is passionate about teaching and science education. When not telling others about the laws of nature, though, he explores the history, production and flavors of everything alcoholic -- spirits, cocktails, beer and wine. He hosts and organizes cocktail parties and spirit tasting events, and he loves to chat with the people who pour their souls into the bottles we drink. In a perfect world, his liquor cabinet always contains a flask of Laphroaig, an eyedropper of absinthe, and a fresh bottle of sweet vermouth.
