** What’s with the necklaces?

Rex is a whiskey mooch. His necklace is a manifestation of pure glory – forged from the irradiated bones of eagles and wolves. Also a tube sock.

See the origin story here: http://goo.gl/JMc2Hr

Daniel is a whiskey sommelier. His necklace is a token of his sommelier level, and he trains whiskey sommeliers at The Whisk(e)y Marketing School in Austin Texas.

**A Whisk(e)y school?

Yup. Here are a few things we believe.

** You don’t have to be a snob to appreciate and love great whiskey.

Whisky and Whiskey (it depends on where it’s from) have been an important part of cultures around the world from time immemorial. Whiskey is a part of the very fabric of Western society, and in most places, is as common and accessible as beer.

Like Jazz and wine, snobs have predictably hijacked whiskey appreciation, spoiling our natural, common connection with it and creating a false dichotomy of “good whiskey” and “bad whiskey.”

It’s time to break through the emotional bias with facts and science. That’s what this school is about.

** The only valid definition of “good” whiskey is “whiskey you like to drink.”

Learning how to share your love of whiskey in a way that connects people to the history and the story has more to do with public speaking and storytelling than it does with facts and tests.

The best way to learn about whiskey and share that love is to drink whiskey and talk about it with friends. Study the history, find the stories, and discover the culture and the methods that have been developed over hundreds of years. That’s what you’ll do when you attend The Whisk(e)y Marketing School.

** You don’t need a marketing degree to learn how to share your love of whiskey with the world.

There’s an old saying, “In business, it’s not what you know… It’s who you know.”

Regardless the industry you’re in, most people are clumsy and ineffective when it comes to “networking” because they ignore a very important rule – Relationship First, Business Second.

There’s a tremendous amount of curiosity about Whisk(e)y today. It’s a great excuse for you to gather a group of people who want to have fun and learn something new. The Whisk(e)y School teaches you how to tap into that curiosity, and share your love of whisk(e)y in an unpretentious way. You’re demonstrating knowledge, expertise, and an engaging personality – things valued by every gatekeeper, in every industry.

Or would you rather hand out business cards and cross your fingers?

darrell hood says:

We’re all here and look at the quality we get from Rex and DAN!! Lol

Bigjake412 says:

random thought..this might be blasphomy to some and others may try it but you know how you drop some water in whiskey to change profile what if you added a whiskey to a whiskey? Basically a blended whiskey of your own creation. try both whiskeys as they are then mix the two and see what changes. I think itd be a cool mini series to do. so say you took the wheated and the port finish and did a ratio of each together to make somethin with sweetness but very smooth or maybe one would cancel the other all together or took the one with the spike and added one of these to it so instead of diluting the alcohol content to change profile or bloom aroma youre just mixing basically to a taste you enjoy more. Random 3am thought probably going to get slaughtered in the comments but oh well! haha

Y2H says:

Raster says:

I notice I watch Rex a lot during these episodes. He sort of commands the camera’s attention, or the viewer’s attention.

I’ve started noticing something strange though. When I watch Rex now, I’m always wondering if he’s gay. If he is, let’s be clear, there’s nothing wrong with being gay.

Rex mentioned his wife. Now I’m thinking maybe by ‘wife’ he means one of those gay things, where one has a wife, but the wife is a gay man. Again, none of us mind if someone has a man as their wife.

Rex mentions his children. The children could be adopted, and that actually would be commendable. More people should adopt.

I think Daniel does give just a slight hint of something ‘fishy’ whenever he looks at Rex and says the word ‘wife.’

Just out of curiosity I would love to see Rex’s wife on camera… maybe if nothing else just for a quick little ‘hello.’

If Rex is gay, I don’t think the channel will mind. We’re all adults. There should be no stigma. This is 2018, and gays are people too.

Cheers.

Daniel has a stepladder…..
He never knew his real ladder.

Danny Estalella says:

****PROHIBITION WEEK SUGGESTION*****

Daniel/Rex,

You guys should review home aging barrels.

1) Rex gets to play with bungholes.
2) Daniel gets to geek out with a home barrel lesson & blending tips. 

BOOM! No need to thank me just send me a sample of M……….SERVICE ME SOME!

ShiNe LEE says:

I save all the videos for the week until Friday night(in my time zone)and enjoy a few drink with you guys. Thanks for the hard works!!!!

Jason Sawatsky says:

We are so spoiled! 6 episodes a week, everybody kills it, Sunday’s piss me off!

Whiskey-Wise says:

I am NOT MY GIRLFRIEND! I am level one whiskey sommelier greataxe3. Aka Mitch. Fo real? Come on guys. I have a slightly unique cadence that comes through in my writing. And Rex liked the d*mn picture I posted in the Tribe of my bar. First he heard of it my butt. It’s terrible what lengths some people will go to in order to look professional on YouTube.

Skill et says:

Rex said Daniel “swings a hammer like a five”. Enough with the innuendo guys.

Tucker Grabher says:

Rex so smart

SheFlungDung says:

The daily vids are working, because they’re just a fundamental part of my day….I come home and first thing I do is sit down behind the computer check your vids and then the news and then maybe some tug of war with cyclops.

Canadian Whisky Smith says:

The pool thing sounds a bit like “The Last Man on Earth”…So much for his Dudeness…Rex might be on his way to becoming Tandy.

zakk moine says:

100% correct on the habit reference. I come home spend time with the wife watch a lil tv, pour a dram, and watch whiskey vault. I know it will be there. One other thing they do great that anyone else starting a youtube channel should take into account is audience engagement. There references, inside jokes, call backs, comments. Makes you feel like your at your monthly whisky club meeting as opposed to two strangers reading a script.

WhiskyJason says:

great advice for the new youtube channels!!!!

speed rakk says:

this aint the way to pismo beach.

Ryan The Wine Guy says:

Rex just took those. LOL.

Karl "Krazy" Abrahamson says:

To the Bartenders! Check out the After Things Podcast, its a podcast by Brian Brushwood who’s a friend of this channel, and a couple friends of his, about being a creative professional. I’d say that Dan and Rex need to get onto After Things, but with their schedule… I doubt that could happen.

Daron Kapp says:

Love the show! When taking a drink of whiskey, do you inhale through the nose as you take the drink or do you take a drink then open the nose back up?

Thanks
