Season 3, Ep 26 — Season 3 Finale, Mailbag episode

Another year, another Mailbag episode. Joshua and Jason received a record number of email questions. Listen in as you listeners challenge the two J's on all things whisky (and rum). If you're lucky you may spot a dick joke or five.

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 3, Ep 24 — Gordon Bruce Distillery Manager Knockdhu (anCnoc) Distillery

You come to the One Nation Under Whisky podcast for the geeky and nerdy whisky discussion and today's episode is no different. Actually, yes it is. The whisky geekery level goes to 11 in today's conversation with Knockdhu Distillery's Distillery Manager, Gordon Bruce.

We talk fermentation, yeast types, mashing, cycloning, the reasons for why some distilleries would want a clear wash (fermentation) rather than a cloudy one, and so much more. 

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 3, Ep 23 — Alistair Walker of the Alistair Walker Whisky Co and Independent Bottling

Joshua and Jason have known the good Alistair Walker for years -- all the way back when he was with the BenRiach Distilling Company and they had just started Single Cask Nation, asking him if he would sell them casks (which he eventually did in the form of a 17yo peated BenRiach). You see, the shoe is on the other foot now...

Since the sale of BenRiach, GlenDronach, and Glenglassaugh FROM the Walker family TO Brown-Forman, Alistair has opened his own whisky company, the Alistair Walker Whisky Co, with the focus on one major thing: Independent Bottling under the "Infrequent Flyers" label. Let's listen in as Jason and Alistair discuss this very thing.

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!

Surprise Episode Featuring Meeghan Murdoch of Glenrinnes Distillery

Today J&J are talking with the one and only Meeghan Murdoch of Glenrinnes Distillery. The boys have had this interview in the hopper for a few months now and figured the conversation would make for a wonderful Christmakwanzukkah gift (Joshua and Jason are nothing if not giving).

Let's all get our geek on with Meeghan Murdoch of Glenrinnes Distillery (located in Benrinnes, Scotland). Today Meeghan teaches us how the ins and outs of mashing, fermenting, and distilling can and do affect mouthfeel (THE thing that can make or break the drinking experience)!

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 3, Ep 18 — Maltstock “The Relaxed Whisky Weekend’s” co-founder, Teun Van Wel

What makes for an amazing whisky festival? Well, it starts with a great idea but is supported by an army of helpers to ensure that the event goes to plan without a hitch. We know this because we (Joshua and Jason) had run Whisky Jewbilee in the states for 7 years across 3 cities. Our guest today, Teun Van Wel, knows this doubly so as his Maltstock events don't just run 3 hours but run for a full weekend and have done so since its inception in 2009. How does he do it? He starts off by relaxing. 

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!
