Episode 180 – Drew Mayville – Buffalo Trace/Sazerac

This episode features ⁠Drew Mayville⁠ of ⁠Buffalo Trace⁠ and ⁠Sazerac⁠.

When Drew was originally looking for work he applied to a brewery and a distillery. The distillery turned out to be ⁠Seagram’s⁠. In hind sight this was his best move. He began in the distillery lab. After many years of working in different areas he was promoted to the Master Blender. We discuss his role at Buffalo Trace and some of the nuances for being a Master Blender. His first priority is being responsible for the consistency and quality of the spirit that goes into every bottle. Drew is always looking to make a better whiskey with Sazerac’s Buffalo Trace Distillery. Today he’s transitioning into being more of an ambassador and educating people about the products. After the interview, The Master Blender led us through a master class on some of Buffalo Trace’s most coveted expressions. Almost 200 plus in attendance at Roger Wilco were grateful for this once in a lifetime experience.

Episode 83 – Kim and Tom Bard – The Bard Distillery

This episode features Kim Bard and Tom Bard of The Bard Distillery.

It all started in 2005 when tom walked into Kim’s race shop.  In 2006 they found themselves in Kentucky and decided to go to visit a distillery.  The chose to check out Maker’s Mark.  They loved the tour and afterwards they were fueled by what they saw.  They couldn’t stop talking about it,  The smells, the sights, the sounds and the people. They were not able to shake the idea.  In 2015 they took the plunge and purchased Tom’s old school, creating The Bard Distillery, which opened in 2019.  We had a fantastic experience at the distillery.  We got to see the vision of what it all will become.  Their spirits are wonderful and creative.

Led by Cult Bourbons, Distillers Dream of a ‘Napa-fication’ of Kentucky

In September 2014, a bourbon brand called Kentucky Owl began to appear on liquor-store shelves around Louisville. The American whiskey market was booming, and dozens of new bourbons were showing up each year. But Kentucky Owl was different. Released exclusively within the state in tiny quantities and produced by the scion of an old Kentucky whiskey family, it had an undeniable mystique — and a price tag of $170.

To skeptics, Kentucky Owl was proof that the whiskey trend had reached its Tulip Mania moment. At the time, few bourbons commanded even $50 at retail. Plus, the man behind the brand, Dixon Dedman, didn’t even make the whiskey himself; he bought barrels from other distilleries, then blended them. Surely the bubble was about to pop.
