Jeff Topping traveled from Ohio to Scotland to explore his family’s heritage, and wound up as the “Wild Scotsman” with his own line of independent bottlings. We’ll have his story on this episode, along with Jim Cryle on the special vatting he and fellow retired distiller Ed Dodson put together for this weekend’s Spirit of Speyside Festival…a $1000 Kentucky Derby cocktail, and news of layoffs at the Seagram distillery in Indiana…all on this episode of WhiskyCast.
