This week on the show we’ll talk to Brian Hoefling, author of Distilled Knowledge: The Science Behind Drinking’s Greatest Myths, Legends, and Unanswered Questions.
In our chat with Brian Hoefling we challenge some of the myths, old wives tales and half-truths about alcohol. We'll talk about fermentation, distillation and aging. Add in some science about mixology and it adds up to a great conversation!
Just a couple days before recording this episode of the podcast, I did not know that in less than a week I’d be traveling to Mexico as a guest of Patron Tequilla! I’ll be staying at the Patron Hacienda where the Tequilla is produced. I’ve spoken to other people who have taken this trip and every one of them raves about the experience.
I’ll have the portable audio recording gear and will be bringing you adventures from Mexico and Patron Hacienda.
There is a lot coming up for you on the podcast – we’ll be talking with the Master Distiller of Jack Daniels Jeff Arnet, Sam Ross of Milk and Honey Fame, a really interesting and smart gentleman named George Bressler, we’ll talk to the Brand Ambassadors from Monkey Shoulder, Drambuie and Black Bottle Scotch, plus author and bartender Lou Bustamante.
