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”.
It’s a good time to be in the whisky business. Scotch whisky exports are growing by 4 percent a year, and added up to $5 billion last year worldwide. We’ll talk with Scotch Whisky Association chief executive Gavin Hewitt about the political and business issues facing the industry. In the news…more new whiskies this week, a preview of the Christie’s whisky auction this December in New York City, and John Hansell gives us the details on the fall edition of Malt Advocate Magazine…along with a preview of WhiskyFest events in San Francisco and New York City.
