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.

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!

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!

Felicia and Stephanie Ohnmacht of Whiskey Sisters Supply

Happy International Women's Day! On today's episode Joshua and Jason welcome Felicia and Stephanie Ohnmacht from Whiskey Sister Supply.

Whiskey Sisters Supply is a Colorado grains brokerage firm who supply grains from Colorado farmers to Colorado distilleries and maltsters to craft top-notch spirits. There were also a treat to have on the padcost.

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.

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!
