I've witnessed first hand the progression of bourbon over the past 6 years since this podcast began. It went from learning about new releases and hunting for them with relative ease to 72 hour campouts for bottles that used to be on the shelves.

Starting a distillery is no easy task and figuring out how to bank roll it is even harder.

"Best Lists" are a popular thing in the whiskey world. We love to hate them. Many times they seem like they just threw top big named brands on a list to get clicks.
