Season 2, Ep 11 — Live Podcast @ Whisky Jewbilee NYC with the Great Islay Swimmers and Simon Brooking

Our second live podcast recording! This time around we're in New York City at the 7th annual Whisky Jewbilee. The boys, in front of an audience of 40 people, have a conversation with Justin Fornal and Chad Anderson (two of the three swimmers of The Great Islay Swim), and Simon Brooking (remember him from Season 2, Episode 7?) of Beam Suntory. The topic? Well, if you must know, The Great Islay Swim and the bottling Single Cask Nation is releasing to commemorate the swim!

So, as usual, have a seat, have a pour, and listen in. Unless you're driving. If you're driving, be smart and stay sober but be sure to listen into the conversation!

Season 2, Ep 10 - A talk with Ollie Chilton of Elixir Distillers regarding blending and so much more…

It's amazing to think that Joshua and Jason, being so far along in this podcasting journey, have not done much to broach the subject of blending. Well, all that changes as of today, good listener!

The boys have a fun mobile studio recording event with the one and only Ollie Chilton of Elixir Distillers. (Yes, they interviewed Ollie while driving. No, it wasn't very smart.) Together the boys tackle the subject of blending as well as what it takes to open a new distillery on Islay, something which is currently in the works for Elixir Distillers.

So, as usual, have a seat, have a pour, and listen in. Unless you're driving. If you're driving, be smart and stay sober but be sure to listen into the conversation!

Season 2, Ep 9 - 2018’s Whisky Jewbilee NYC Post Mortem and final details of our Hello From The Magic Tavern Whisky collaboration

Look at us surviving yet another, our 7th annual, Whisky Jewbilee NYC! What better way to put the event behind us than to discuss it here on One Nation Under Whisky? Not sure that's how it all works but we had fun rehashing the events of the evening.

Add to this is that full and final details on the Single Cask Nation / Hello From the Magic Tavern "Stones of Stenness" whisky collaboration are revealed. You will not want to miss this episode!

So, as usual, have a seat, have a pour, and listen in. Unless you're driving. If you're driving, be smart and stay sober but be sure to listen into the conversation!

Season 2, Ep 8 - Learning about Mezcal from Arik Torren of Fidencio

It may be fair to say that Joshua and Jason know their way around whisky be it Scotch, American, or otherwise. When it comes to mezcal, well, it's no secret that they, like many people, could use a primer, a 101, if you will, in agave spirits. 

Joshua flew down to Oaxaca to meet with Arik Torren of Fidencio spirits and Enrique Jiménez of Del Amigo distillery to learn from the masters. 

So, as usual, have a seat, have a pour, and listen in. Unless you're driving. If you're driving, be smart and stay sober but be sure to listen into the conversation!

Season 2, Ep 7 - a talk with Simon Brooking of Beam Suntory, Brand Ambassador extraordinaire

There are a handful of people in the whisky world that not only become the face of brand(s) they represent but become the face of the industry as a whole. Simon Brooking is one of these good people. When it comes to his own brands; Ardmore, Auchentoshen, Bowmore, Glen Garioch, and Laphroaig, well, one can not think of the brand without Simon's face coming to their mind. For us, we can't think of the whisky industry without Simon being a part of that mental picture. We had a great conversation with Simon Brooking and we want to share it with you, the listener.

So, as usual, have a seat, have a pour, and listen in. Unless you're driving. If you're driving, be smart and stay sober but be sure to listen into the conversation!

Season 2, Ep 6 - Adal Rifai from Hello From The Magic Tavern, talking comedy & whisky

It's not often one of your comedy heroes agrees to be interviewed. It's also a rare thing that he and his cohorts (Arnie Niekamp, aka Arnie Niekamp & Matt Young, aka Usidore the Blue) would be willing to agree to a collaborative bottling!

Listen in as Joshua and Jason talk comedy and whisky with the one and only Adal Rifai (aka Chuntttttt the talking badger/shape-shifter) from the one and only Hello From The Magic Tavern podcast.

Also revealed are the details of our collaborative bottling with Hello From The Magic Tavern - "Stones of Stenness" 13yo PX sherry cask, distilled at an Orkney distillery and bottled exclusively for The Vermillion Minotaur (the fictitious bar located in the fantastical, magical world of Foon).

So, as usual, have a seat, have a pour, and listen in. Unless you're driving. If you're driving, be smart and stay sober but be sure to listen into the conversation!

Season 2, Ep 5 - Catching up, checking emails, and delivering fun news

Sometimes you get so caught up in work and in life that you forget how long it's been since you've had a nice talk with your best friend. Today, Joshua and Jason sit down to catch up a bit and have a wee whisky talk. The hosts also read some emails and deliver some fun news to you, the listener.
