Texas Redemption – Bourbon Podcast #11

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

The 11th episode of the Bourbon & Banter podcast – Texas Redemption - is now available for your listening (and drinking) pleasure. After almost a year, we hit a first for the B&B Podcast, but you’ll have to listen to find out what that is.

This episode brings you the latest whiskey news, with everything from the new Luxco acquisition by MGP to breaking news about the future of Henry McKenna Bottled-in-Bond. The craft shoot is a very surprising one. We were shocked at the results of that segment this month, and we think you will be too. Bourbon Bullshit puts focus on whether or not William H. Macy should fully embrace his Frank Gallagher character and bail on his newly announced bourbon in favor of an Irish whiskey or is it just another celebrity whiskey to ignore.

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.
