In this Episode of The Bourbon Life Podcast presented by Bespoken Spirits, Matt and Mark spend some time hanging out with a true legend in the Bourbon industry, Greg Metze, Master Distiller, of Old Elk Distillery in Ft. Collins, Colorado.

The guys talk with Greg about his incredible career as the Master Distiller at the Seagram’s Distillery/MGP in Lawrenceburg, Indiana, the relationships that he developed with the team at Old Elk that led him to leave MGP after 38 years to start a brand new Distillery featuring whiskies with some extremely unique mashbills, and what the future looks like for both Greg and Old Elk.

And they also taste and review Old Elk’s Wheat Whiskey, their Wheated Bourbon, their Blended Bourbon, and their 95-5 Rye.
