Me and the one and only Fred Minnick right now at breakfast on the sunny Sunset Strip.

Doing his podcast was transformational. Please check this episode out. I’m super proud of this one. The coolest history lesson on bourbon I could’ve ever dreamed about. It was like a gift. You know, sometimes you just meet someone with such vast knowledge, immense passion and unmatched skill that it really is a treat even just to sit down and share some Bourbon, rye or 5 cups of coffee. What a magical breakfast at my favorite hotel in Los Angeles on the famous old Sunset strip where our bourbon sits at the bar of the famous Sunset Tower Hotel.

Thank you for your service Fred, thank you for your generosity and thank you for all that you do for Whiskey. Bringing people together to discuss the history of distilling that goes back 6000 years into Sumerian times to making whiskey in America in modern times.

Thank you for your guidance, thank you for your expertise and thank you for your friendship.

Your buddy,
