Season 2, Ep 10 - A talk with Ollie Chilton of Elixir Distillers regarding blending and so much more...

7/4/2018
More
It's amazing to think that Joshua and Jason, being so far along in this podcasting journey, have not done much to broach the subject of blending. Well, all that changes as of today, good listener!

It may be fair to say that Joshua and Jason know their way around whisky be it Scotch, American, or otherwise.

There are a handful of people in the whisky world that not only become the face of brand(s) they represent but become the face of the industry as a whole. Simon Brooking is one of these good people. When it comes to his own brands; Ardmore, Auchentoshen, Bowmore, Glen Garioch, and Laphroaig, well, one can not think of the brand without Simon's face coming to their mind. For us, we can't think of the whisky industry without Simon being a part of that mental picture. We had a great...
