In this episode we discuss some of the whiskey news of the day and then go in-depth with Bill Samuels, Jr. of Makers Mark to learn more about the history of the brand and why they make such a great bourbon. (note this came about as the result of a media trip put together and paid for by the Bourbon Classic. While appreciative of this, The Whiskey Wash retained full editorial control of related content). We follow this up with a opinionated chat on the recent release of the Old Rip Van Winkle 25 Year Old Bourbon.

Thanks for listening and we hope you enjoy! Also, if you have an idea for a future podcast or would like to reach out to us for consideration for an interview, feel free to drop us a line.
