Just signed up to the @whiskycast community app, looks promising! Hey, another platform to waffle on about whisky, what's not to like?!? 😀🥃
Want to listen to today's #SCOTUS oral arguments in the @JackDaniels_US lawsuit over a "Bad Spaniel's" dog toy? We have the audio at the WhiskyCast web site...poop jokes and all.
I’ll be interviewing @GlenGrantUS distillery manager Dennis Malcolm later today. Any questions you’d like me to ask him?
This week on WhiskyCast, we're going back 40 years in time to 1983, when 14 distilleries closed their doors (many for good) because of the #whiskyloch. Only 3 have reopened, with the fourth expected later this year when Port Ellen reopens.

Rising From the Ashes: Du Nord and Minneapolis (Episode 824: June 21, 2020)
It would have been easy for Chris and Shanelle Montana to close Du Nord Craft Spirits after arsonists set fire to the distillery’s warehouse during riots in the wake of George Floyd’s death at the hands of Minneapolis Police four weeks ago. It would have been even easier after more arsonists set fire to their apartment building the next night. They underestimated the Montanas, who not only plan to rebuild their distillery, but their neighborhood as well – and have already raised more than $560,000 with a GoFundMe campaign to help other minority-owned businesses repair their damage and rebuild. We’ll talk with Chris and Shanelle on this week’s WhiskyCast In-Depth.
In the news, Sazerac is expanding its portfolio with the acquisition of Canadian Mist and Collingwood Canadian whiskies, the Canadian Mist Distillery in Ontario, and Early Times from Brown-Forman. As coronavirus fever begins to fade, tariff talk is back in Brussels and Washington, while Beam Suntory is reviving part of the Beam family’s legacy as the company celebrates 225 years of making whiskey.
