Short explanation of the story and how it developed:

The At Home With... profiles are a much anitipated department in At Home on the North Shore Magazine. Each issue features a profile of a local "person of interest." Reading an At Home With profile makes you feel like you have just sat down and had a cup of tea and made a new friend. In the fall 2017 issue writer Jennifer Hatt meets the man behind the Steinhart Distillery brand. Thomas shares his story growing up near the Black Forest of Germany and living on his grandfathers farm. Fast forward several decades and Thomas finds himself enjoying the beasches of Arisaig, Nova Scotia and sets his sights on piece of land over looking the Strait and he knew that he had found his new home. Writer Jennifer Hatt's profile reveals Steinhart as a visionary with his German no-nonsense itellect that has resulted in a state of the art distillery in northern Nova Scotia that continues to earn awards and honours for its quality spirits.
