The Making of a Whiskey Ghost Town
To celebrate the launch of the Whiskey Lore Travel Guide to Experiencing Kentucky Bourbon (available on Amazon), I stopped by my local craft distillery (since travel is still a little tricky at the moment) to talk with the founder David Raad about the experience of being a craft distiller. He'll talk philosophy, choosing grains, waiting for whiskey to age, sourcing, and the legend of Six & Twenty.

I’m going to share with you part of the interview I had with Elizabeth Pearce. Elizabeth is the host of the Drink and Learn podcast, which uses famous drinks and ingredients to tell the rich history of New Orleans. And the information she provides on the history of bourbon in New Orleans is a centerpiece of my upcoming episode. I decided it was time to come down from my whiskey neat and whiskey splash pedestal and learn a bit more about cocktails.
