Whisky Sisters Supply, Felicia & Stephanie Return!

At the beginning of 2023 Joshua & Jason committed themselves to put a sharper focus on agriculture and how it relates to whisky (which is an agricultural product after all).

Having Felicia and Stephanie Ohnmacht return to the Padcost to give us an update on how mother nature has treated them and their business in 2023 only makes good sense. Plus, we love having them on.

Live Padcost from Westland Distillery with Ana Hinz & Tyler Pederson

One of the nice things about having Covid (mostly) behind us is we get to travel and do live Padcost recordings again.

Alan Winchester and Jonathan Christie Discuss the Cabrach Project and Distillery

During a recent trip to Scotland Joshua, Jason and Jess visit the location of the future Cabrach distillery to discuss the Cabrach Trust as well as the land and its history.

The Cabrach is home to a rich history of distilling (both illicit and legal). The Cabrach Distillery will cast an eye back to the distilling of yesteryear as, besides to double pot stills it will house, it will feature a very unusual still called "The Buck".

Listen in as the 3 J's discuss all this with The Cabrach's Chief Executive Jonathan Christie and its Master of Malt, Alan Winchester. Yes, of The Glenlivet fame.

There's a lot to unpack here and Joshua and William discuss it all over a couple beers!

Felipe Schrieberg on Whisky Journalism and Rhythm & Booze (his IB company and record label)

Occasionally worlds collide due to happenstance but, more often than not, it's because someone endeavored to make worlds collide.

In today's episode Joshua and Jason talk with Felipe Schrieberg regarding, in part, his whisky journalism, but also his independent bottling and record company, Rhythm & Booze where Felipe and his friend/business partner, and bandmate, Paul Archibald, combine music and whisky in a lovely and thoughtful way.

Worlds colliding, indeed!

Discussing Auctions with Jess Lomas and SwedeScot

In the first of a few conversations regarding auctions, Joshua and Jason talk to their dear friends, Jess Lomas and Christoffer "SwedeScot" Hällström , who've both had quite a history in online auctions. Jess came to Single Cask Nation from a job at an auction and SwedeScot still works for one. If anyone is going to have insight, it'd be these two!

Bikram Singh discusses Independent Bottlings and DTC

While Jason was off galavanting in the wilderness of the Pacific Northwest Joshua spent some time with the inimitable Bikram Singh, owner of Norfolk Wine & Spirits in Norfolk Massachusetts which is, perhaps, the largest single store outlet in the US focusing independently bottled spirits.

Bikram and Joshua discuss both Indy bottlings as well as what the various futures of DTC (direct to consumer shipping) could look like for retail shop owners. We also get to hear Birkam's whisky origin story which is really quite fun!

Holly Seidewand & Anthony Levenson discuss the world of retail and DTC (direct to consumer) sales

Earlier this year Joshua & Jason's dear friend, Holly Seidewand, co-proprietor of the whisky-centric shop: First Fill Spirits, wrote in off the back of our "Year in Preview" episode with Susannah Skiver Barton. The topic? DTC (direct to consumer) sales. Based on her thoughtful email the boys knew we had to have Holly back on the padcost.

This time around the boys invited their friend Anthony Levenson, too, so he should shed additional light on the world of retail liquor sales & DTC. Anthony runs the spirits side of the business at Roma Wines in NYC. He's also a helluva guy.

Season 7, Ep 6 -- 3 May, 2023

Bill Thomas of Jack Rose Returns!

Joshua has often said that Jason's first interview with Bill Thomas of Jack Rose Dining Saloon was one of the best interviews he's ever heard from any interviewer. If we're being honest, this conversation, while quite a bit different than the first, was just as good. This is as fly-on-the-wall a whisky conversation as you'll ever hear. We hope you enjoy!

One Nation Under Whisky

Season 7, Ep 5 -- 19 April, 2023

Matt Hofmann of Westland Returns to Talk Solum and Barley

You know it's going to be a great episode when Westland Distillery's very own Matt Hofmann is a guest! What makes this episode even more greaterer is the boys get ultra geeky about barley, the grain commodity system, and, perhaps most importantly, Westland's "Solum" release -- their first ever whisky which used barley peated with Washington State peat. An achievement that was almost 11 years in the making!

One Nation Under Whisky

Season 7, Ep 2 -- 8 March, 2023

Though Joshua was unable to join in on the conversation, Jason did his part to hold down the interview fort. Thankfully Felicia and Stephanie, as amazing guests, made his job easy.

One Nation Under Whisky

Season 7, Ep 1 -- 22 February, 2023

Victoria Eady Butler, Master Blender, Nearest Green Distillery

We're kicking off Season 7 of One Nation Under Whisky with the one and only Victoria Eady Butler.

Victoria is not only Whisky Magazine's 2021 & 2022's Master Blender of the year she's also the great-great grand daughter of Nathan "Nearest" Green, the father of the Lincoln County Process, a process integral to any Tennessee whisky wanting to call itself, in fact, 'Tennessee' whisky!

This was a wonderful conversation with Victoria and one, we think, is worthy of a season opener. We trust you'll agree!
