Welcome to Key In The Lake
Harrison Pious is back. We begin with Bourbon talk, including the news out of Texas craft juggernaut Balacones, and the projection of booze in the media. Then, well, then we fall down a ‘90s/Aughts movies rabbit hole, before returning to whiskey. The second half of the pod, we discuss how to create the perfect whiskey festival for both event runners and festival consumers.
Callum O’Donnell returns to the show. He tangentially shares insights on WWll; reminisces about his drinking exploits while stints in Canada, the Caribbean and Spain; all while sharing his top 5 adult beverages. Callum brought the stories and we brought the laughs.
From the Begyle International Recording Studios (Begyle Brewing), comes the second half of our conversation with Marty Duffy. Marty delightfully shares more stories on his development of becoming a global ambassador of whisky; along with the true meaning of being a representative of a brand. Marty walks us through his time in Europe working on universal projects to narrower/local developments such as; sitting in Chicago’s own Delilah’s and buying a round of Green Label for the entire bar.
