David McCowan

Dave McCowan is a PhD student in Physics at the University of Chicago and is passionate about teaching and science outreach. When not investigating the laws of nature, though, he explores the history, production and flavors of spirits and cocktails. He co-founded a recurring cocktail party – Four Eleven – to hone these skills and to work on original drink creations, and with other friends, hosts and organizes whiskey and spirit tastings. In a perfect world, his liquor cabinet always contains a bottle of Laphroaig, an eyedropper of absinthe, and a fresh bottle of sweet vermouth.
