The Whiskey Wash Podcast Episode 2 – Maker’s Mark

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.

About the author

Nino Marchetti

As the founder of The Whiskey Wash, I'm crazy about whiskey, I can tell you, and I aim to share this passion with you through this site. As for my professional background, I’m a writer and journalist by trade and an Internet dot-com veteran prior to that. My most recent venture prior to this was as the founder and editor-in-chief of EarthTechling, a leading consumer focused green technology news website. I also have an extensive collection of whiskies from both start up distilleries and centuries old operations in Scotland alike, sprinkled with some other odds and ends from around the world, that have provided me with a unique picture of what’s going on with this wonderful spirit.
