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”.
With Father’s Day coming up, we’ll meet a Scottish woman following her father into the whiskey business. That’s right…whiskey. Jennifer Nickerson married her Irish farmer husband, Liam Ahearn, and moved to his family’s farm in County Tipperary, Ireland. Her father is longtime Scotch Whisky veteran Stuart Nickerson, and when he saw Liam’s farm, he persuaded them that it was the perfect place for a distillery. They’re now building the Tipperary Boutique Distillery, and while Liam works the farm, Jennifer will be making the whiskey. We’ll talk with father and daughter on WhiskyCast In-Depth. In the news, the whiskey trade war is expanding, and distillers are preparing to face the impact of new tariffs on exports of Bourbon and other American whiskies. We’ll have that story and much more on the midweek edition of WhiskyCast.
