Most of us will never be able to produce our own whisky, but admit it, you’d probably love to be able to bottle your own whisky as an independent bottler. Barry Stein and Barry Bernstein are doing just that, and they’re the first independent bottlers in Canada. They’ll tell us about negotiating the bureaucratic maze, getting their first bottles into liquor stores in Alberta, and just how much fun it is to have a bottle of Scotch on your desk for dramming at desire! In the news, Buffalo Trace Distillery hits the Triple Crown with another Distiller of the Year Award, Woodford Reserve marks an anniversary, Dewar’s decides to give the U.S. a taste of Aberfeldy, and will there ever be a deal at Whyte and Mackay?
