Cease & Desist – Bourbon Podcast #13

In Podcast by Patrick "Pops" Garrett and Bob BennettLeave a Comment

The 13th episode of the Bourbon & Banter podcast – Cease & Desist - is now available for your listening (and drinking) pleasure. Sit back, grab a pour, and join us in celebrating a whirlwind of breaking news and one-of-a-kind reporting that you only get from Bourbon & Banter. There’s even a special surprise at the end where a lucky listener can win a great prize!

Our second year of the most honest podcast in bourbon starts with a major announcement regarding one of bourbon's most cherished accompaniments…the donut. Trust us, if you’ve never had donuts with your bourbon, you’re missing out. We have just the thing coming your way to correct that. We’re so excited about this new project we can hardly contain ourselves!

This month’s Whiskey News sets a new precedent for breaking news in the bourbon world, as you won’t hear ANY of these hot tips on any other podcast. The Bourbon & Banter crack team of undercover reporters has been hard at work scouring the rickhouses, distilleries, and distribution warehouses of America to bring you this unbelievable information. The title of the podcast also stems from the Whiskey News, as we have finally pissed someone off enough that legal action has been taken. We’re surprised it took this long….

With so much breaking bourbon news, we skip the Craft Shoot this month and go straight to Bourbon Bullshit, the most popular bourbon podcast segment in the universe! Addressing things like home aging whiskey, Elon Musk’s attempt to buy a coveted craft distillery, and a true bonehead move involving Blanton’s dump dates, this month’s Bourbon Bullshit hits hard and gives you the attitude you’ve come to expect from Bourbon & Banter.

For this episode particularly, we have a very special surprise ending for you, but you have to listen to the whole podcast from start to finish in order to figure it out. To make that easier, we’ve disabled the fast forward button on your podcast player, all Spotify players, as well as iTunes, so don’t even try to skip to the end. Any attempt to do so will automatically self-destruct your device and turn it into a gallon of Lusty Claw bourbon.

The fifteen months Bob Bennett spent living in Lebanon, KY, as a child may have laid the groundwork for what would happen years later (something in the water…literally). Originally from Corning, NY, he grew up in a household where happy hour was celebrated every night. Surprisingly, Bennett didn’t start drinking until he was 23 years old. He quickly made up for lost time, gravitating to bourbon as his preferred libation immediately, and proudly filled the bar that was passed down from his father. In the years that followed, not only did he develop a deeper appreciation for bourbon, but began to cherish the opportunity to talk about the spirit he has grown to love. As the Artistic Director for Jazz St. Louis, Bennett has become the unofficial bourbon ambassador of jazz, spreading the gospel of good taste to musicians everywhere. It also helps endear him to the St. Louis community, which is needed, as bleeding Dodger Blue tends to rub those Cardinal fans the wrong way.
