new year, new me?

So here we are again, New Year and all those New Me promises. By the time you read this 2019 will be getting into full swing. Do you make any resolutions each year? Mostly I try, but we all know where good intentions end up. So this year I decided on achievable ones as there is so much instability out there in the public arena, I feel the private should be more of an even keel this year. The ability to navigate and ride out whatever the year brings might outweigh the need to be bigger and more sparkly than before. Don’t get me wrong, it’s great if you can put a change in place and stick to it, but for me I need this to be achievable, much better to do…

ending any confusion

Copper Fox Distillery has launched new branding and packaging for the distillery’s existing products and new limited edition releases. Copper Fox Distillery produces single malt whisky, rye, and gin. “The new packaging and label design better organizes our current product portfolio, better communicates our rich brand story at the shelf, and helps cut down on confusion as it didn’t seem that people understood our Copper Fox Rye and Wasmund’s single malt were from the same distillery,” explained Rick Wasmund, founder and master distiller at Copper Fox Distillery. Current fans familiar with Copper Fox products will no longer see Wasmund’s on the Original single malt whisky label. Wasmund added, “This consolidation under the Copper Fox brand reflects our respect for the history and culture of whisky, our commitment to malting our own locally…

MurLarkey Distilled Spirits is excited to announce the appointment of George “Papi” Zwetkow as master distiller and nose of MurLarkey. “George has been an integral member and resource to the distillery since we launched.

judging and distilling

For the second year in a row I have had the privilege of judging the World Whiskies Awards in Washington, D.C., held at the venerable Jack Rose Dining Saloon. Multiple teams judge round after round of different categories, from ryes to single malts, and everything in between. As you might imagine, Bourbon has been our largest category for quite some time in the American Whiskey portion of the competition. As we worked our way through what seemed like dozens of samples of Bourbon, it became immediately clear that there are some craft distilleries out there really coming into their own. Bourbons that don’t exemplify the typical Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey genre are often times quite interesting, and it gives this writer a great deal of admiration for those willing to…

i went to the whiskey fair

I went to a lot more whiskey festivals than usual last year, even though I had an illness that laid me low for two months. I traveled across the country – Seattle, Denver, Chicago, New Orleans, Boston, DC – talking to folks about Bourbon and rye and Scotch and Canadian whiskeys, sometimes on a panel, sometimes just on my lonesome. It was enlightening. I’ve seen whiskey festivals from the early days. I was at the first WhiskyFest, in New York, back in 1997. It wasn’t large, and most people didn’t really know what to do, how to ‘fest.’ It’s amusing to recall, though, that even at that first modern American whiskey festival (first I know of, and no one’s ever corrected me) people knew how to get to the front of…
