I’m often introduced as the guy who blends teas in the land of bourbon. My neighboring master distillers at Woodford Reserve, Maker’s Mark and Wild Turkey distilleries all share my passion for crafting some of the finest beverages in our respective fields. Often they search the racks of aging barrels in their warehouses to find exceptional barrels that are the best of the lot. These honey barrels are reserved for bottling as single barrel bourbons that garner a premium price. Rare bourbons are to be sipped slowly and shared with friends. And heaven forbid they should ever be included in a mint julep or mixed with cola!
