In this Episode of The Bourbon Life Podcast presented by @bespokenspirits, Matt and Mark spend some time hanging out with a true legend in the Bourbon industry, Greg Metze, Master Distiller, of @oldelkbourbon 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.

This is such a great Episode with a great guy who has so much experience and knowledge in the industry.

You don’t want to miss it!

I had a great time this afternoon getting to meet up with @dsuzu808 and his wife, Amanda, at my favorite restaurant, @thestavekentucky.

Derek and his wife came all the way from Hawaii to explore our beautiful Commonwealth and our incredible distilleries.

And my wife and I got the opportunity to introduce them both to some elevated Kentucky cuisine today as well.

Derek is a big supporter of The Bourbon Life and had purchased a bottle of our @bulleit Barrel Pick from earlier this year and I was finally able to deliver it to him in person.

And he brought me and Matt this awesome Barrel Pick of @smoothambler Old Scout from the @hawaiiwhiskeymafia.

How freaking awesome is that?!?!?

Derek, I hope you and your wonderful wife enjoy the rest of your time here in Kentucky and we wish you safe travels back to Hawaii.

Until next time - Cheers!! 🥃

In this Episode of The Bourbon Life Podcast presented by @bespokenspirits, Matt and Mark spend some time hanging out with @billmcbrayeriv, Founder, of @mcbrayerlegacyspirits.

The guys talk with Bill about the amazing legacy of his ancestor and the brand’s namesake, W.H. McBrayer, and the huge impact he had on the Kentucky Bourbon industry in the mid- to late-1800’s, the relationship that Bill and his team have developed with @wildernesstraildistillery to contract distill their Bourbon and the care and precision that went into creating a true “modern dusty”, and what the future looks like for McBrayer Legacy Spirits.

And they also taste and review a Trifesta Barrel Pick Cask Strength Wilderness Trail High Rye Bourbon and the Inaugural Release of W.H. McBrayer Kentucky Straight Bourbon.

The history of Bourbon is so important to the industry now and the story of W.H. McBrayer is one that everyone needs to be familiar with.

This is an Episode you don’t want to miss.

Yes, I know that it's Thursday.

Yes, I know that yesterday was the day for this Bourbon.

But I've always enjoyed marching to the beat of my own drum and bucking the norm so Happy #wellerthursday!!

If you haven't figured it out by now I'm a big fan of these @wellerbourbon Full Proof Barrel Picks.

And any day that ends in a "y" is a great day to enjoy them.

Pictured here are the picks from @liquor_barn_ky, @unlimited_spirit404, @bricktopsrestaurant, and @obckitchen (BHG).

You can probably tell by the amount left in each bottle which one is my favorite.

So how are you celebrating #wellerthursday??

“Too much of anything is bad but too much good whiskey is barely enough.”– Mark Twain, Author

It’s fitting that one of the greatest storytellers in American History had this to say about whiskey many years ago.

And as an author who wrote about life on the Mississippi River we have to believe that Mr. Twain was writing these words specifically about American’s only native spirit, Bourbon, a spirit that he surely enjoyed as it passed down that mighty river regularly heading for New Orleans and the rest of the world.

Bourbon is all about two things: (1) the people (those who make it and those who drink it), and (2) good stories. There is nothing better than sitting around with friends, both old and new, sharing a delicious glass of Bourbon and telling great stories.

At The Bourbon Life our mission is simple – to share our passion for all things Bourbon with you.

May your glasses always be full and may you keep on living The Bourbon Life.
