Dave Pickerell was a huge force in American whiskey over that last several decades.
Unfortunately Dave passed away at age 62 on November 1 of this year, 2018 in San Francisco. He was there attending WhiskeyFest.
He was a big proponent of Rye Whiskey and played a huge roll in the resurgence of American Rye Whiskey.
Rest in Peace Mr. Dave Pickerell. You’ll be sorely missed.
