WhiskyCast is where it all begins. Now in our 18th year, each weekly podcast brings you the latest in whisky news, along with the latest events, tasting notes, comments from other listeners, and the weekly “In-Depth” segment features interviews with the people who help make whisky the “water of life”.
Very few Bourbon brands can claim much of a pre-Prohibition heritage, but Brown-Forman’s Old Forester can. George Garvin Brown created Old Forester in 1870 in the same way many of today’s whiskey entrepreneurs got started – by buying bulk whiskey from several distilleries and blending them together to create his own unique flavor. His great-great grandson Campbell Brown is the managing director of Old Forester today, and joins us on this week’s WhiskyCast In-Depth. We’ll also have the week’s whisky news, tasting notes, and on Behind the Label, we’ll look at the best whisky advertising money can’t buy…because it’s literally on the money!
