As a Refugee, Peanut Butter Became His Symbol of Freedom. Now It's Part of His Whiskey

Sponsors gave peanut butter, bread and apples to Steven Yeng’s family when they arrived in America “all skin and bones” after surviving the Khmer Rouge genocide in Cambodia. Through his childhood, Yeng saw peanut butter as a symbol of freedom and put peanut butter on everything and – now his whiskey brand, Skrewball Whiskey, is launching a peanut butter flavored version of the spirit.
