What’s shakin, cocktail fans?
Welcome to episode 128 of The Modern Bar Cart Podcast!
This time around, we have a great cross-over episode for you, where the tables are turned and Eric is suddenly the one being interviewed alongside his friend Braeden Bumpers of McClintock Distilling. This interview was conducted by beverage broadcaster Chris Sands of the Uncapped Podcast, who spends most of his time in the craft beer space, but has recently been branching out to spirits and cocktails.
Some of the topics we discuss in this interview include:
A little Modern Bar Cart company history, including how our bitters are made and why we’re still cranking out podcasts after two and a half years.
A discussion of whiskey tasting notes, and the strange world of online spirits reviews
How Braeden and I set up our upcoming Bar Room Blitz event, which will take place on Friday, December 13, the day after this episode airs. There may be a few extra tickets released the day of the event, so feel free to check out the show notes page for a link to Eventbrite.
We also conduct a tasting of three special McClintock Distilling innovation series releases, including a wheat whiskey, a gin collaboration, and a hop infused American Single malt created in collaboration with the Uncapped Podcast.
