Ep. 9 Getting (whisk(e)y) geeky with Matt Hofmann of Westland distillery

Getting your whisk(e)y geek on can be a ton of fun. Joshua and Jason are not quite sure it gets any more fun or geeky than a good conversation with Matt Hofmann of Westland Distillery. Whisk(e)y geekery to the side, Matt has more passion in him than most and more talent than you can shake a stick at. He's good people.

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!

Ep. 8 Talking bourbon with Denny Potter, Heaven Hill’s VP of Operations

And on the eight episode, Joshua and Jason have a delightful and informative conversation with Heaven Hill Distilleries' own VP of Operations, Mr. Denny Potter...

Denny Potter is an absolutely fascinating gent who had a lot of knowledge to share with the boys. Joshua and Jason sure learned (or learnt, as Jason would say) a lot from Mr. Potter, and the boys share this knowledge with you, the listener.

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!

Ep. 7 …as we discuss our origins (whisky, not superhero, sorry) and talk with Lukasz Dynowiak of Old Pulteney, Balblair, anCnoc, and more!

Now seven episodes in, Joshua and Jason realize that they've never shared their whisky origin story with you. In speaking with Lukasz Dynowiak of Old Pulteney, Balblair, anCnoc, and Speyburn, the boys are reminded that their whisky origin story is not too far off from Lukasz'.

**Spoiler alert** No one is bit by a spider or has crash landed here from their home planet of Krypton, however, all three of these gentlemen were bitten by the whisky bug!

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!

Ep. 6 Richard Urquhart of Gordon & MacPhail

Richard Urquhart is a 4th generation Urquhart in the Gordon & MacPhail company. Gordon & MacPhail, whose products are ubiquitous when it comes to a good whisky shop's shelves, is perhaps the most iconic Scottish independent bottler in business today. Together, with the help of Richard Urquhart, Joshua and Jason solve the world's problems and lay out plans for world peace.

Well, maybe not. However, the conversation is great, and we get to learn all about Gordon & MacPhail straight from one of the founding family's members!

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!

Ep. 5 Picking bourbon barrels with Eddie Russell of Wild Turkey Distillery

Who knew spending time with a bourbon legend could be so amazing? (rhetorical question, really.) April 4 found Joshua and Jason in the company of the one and only Eddie Russell of Wild Turkey Fame. Eddie, now 36 years into his life with the distillery, spent a disproportionate amount of his time with the Joshua and Jason (more time than they could have hoped for). Together the boys selected two casks of Wild Turkey Bourbon for Single Cask Nation and have a great in-depth conversation with Eddie.

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!

Ep. 4.5 Post April Fools Day with Westland Distillery

Episode four point five of One Nation Under Whisky podcast is here - who knew there'd be a partial and surprise episode on April 2, 2017? Well, we did, that's who. Bucking this new trend of releasing an episode every other Wednesday, we just *had* to clue you in on a portion of our conversation with Matt Hofmann (Master Distiller) and Steve Hawley (Maniacal Marketing Marauder) from Westland Distillery. That portion? Boldsmooth, the latest innovation in whisky ridiculous tomfoolery!

Happy April Fools Day, one day after!

Ep.4 Mark Watt, General Manager (aka Supreme Leader) of Wm Cadenhead’s

Episode four of One Nation Under Whisky podcast is alive! Now with an established release schedule in place, every other Wednesday, Joshua and Jason have a sit down with Mark Watt, General Manager (aka Supreme Leader) of Wm Cadenhead's.

The boys discuss how to manage 30+ whisky markets, Jason is told he asked a great question (and Mark was NOT paid to tell him that, promise), Mark tells the boys all about a 50+ year old Jamaican rum that's been in their warehouse and why it's not yet been bottled, and Mark brings up a *great* misconception!

Sure, more is discussed but wouldn't it be better to hear all about it rather than read all about it?

Ep.3 Post Whisky Jewbilee and a few interviews

Episode three of One Nation Under Whisky podcast is here! Now with an established release schedule in place, every other Wednesday, Joshua and Jason discuss the 2nd annual Whisky Jewbilee Seattle and have conversations with; Matt Hofmann (Westland Distillery, Master Distiller), Jessica Lomas (Scotch Whisky Auctions, Queen of the Boxes), and Jeff Kanof (Copperworks Distilling Company, Vice President).

How hard is it to create a solid, respectable blend? Can we find "carrot" as a tasting note in our whisky? Is this episodes' "misconception" more of a chance for Joshua to grind his gears? Listen in to find out!

Ep.2 Bryan Davis of Lost Spirits Interview

In our second episode of One Nation Under Whisky, Joshua and Jason get a little long in the tooth as they have a fine discussion about some serious whisky and rum geekery! The boys also discuss some misconceptions around age and are excited to share details regarding a July 2017 Islay tour that WhiskyGeek Tours is putting together in conjunction with The Explorer's Club and National Geographic.
