** 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?

Jeffery E Petrone says:

diamonbacks47 says:

Wow, you guys are early this morning.

R M says:

Netherlands are below Schotland.. Or did I misinterpret that wrong.. I know one whisky from Netherlands, millstone. Haven’t tasted yet tho. For belgian whisky u have Belgian owl and some others. But I think belgian owl embodies more the spirit of whisky (is that a thing?).. Maybe Gouden Carolus whisky..

Martin Mæhle says:

You guys should do a review of Glendalough 13. It’s an Irish whiskey………… didn’t you guys say irish whiskey was going to become more interesting in one episode?…….

JC Fernandez says:

Fiddly bits

Sandro G. says:

Try Swiss whisky, apparently they even won some prices?

Tim Dietrich says:

For African whisky check out Three Ships. Andy Watts is their master distiller and is a great knowledge. Search around there are lots of podcasts that he has guested on.

Will Brent says:

On the flip side, what region do you want to see LESS whiskey coming from

Elmo Heyns says:

Howzit you magnificent bastards. So my country (south africa) produces 2 whiskeys. Bains and three ships. Would you care to do a review on that? if you can find it? Its too expensive for me to buy and ship it to you.

Raster says:

Just Stop. Just stop right there. That was the first intro where I laughed (wait for it…) out (yes, this is what you are expecting to hear) LOUD!

I laughed out loud.

Come on. Forget about all the past whisky reviews here… What did you do? Like 3 seconds of video and I’m laughing.

What’s going on?

So anyway. I may like your YouTube channel a lot now.


Nathan Earley says:

So if malting barley means starting germination, then kiln drying it with some kind of smoke, peat or otherwise to stop the germination process, does anyone do the same thing with corn? I have no idea if this will have a similar effect, or if it would take some of the intense sweetness away from and otherwise standard bourbon, but it seems like an interesting concept.

You guys are welcome to try this in your distillery, provided I get a bottle from each batch.

Emil Lund says:

Sounds like a really nice whiskey 😛

Will Brent says:

A Real whiskey Dan? What’s that supposed to mean? You kniw what I hear?……SNOB

The Netherlands is further south and warmer than Scotland and both are much warmer than Canada.

LuckieGuly says:

Good video y’all! What city in Tx?

NZAnimeManga says:

The Netherlands is much further south than Scotland. If England can make whisky, so can the Netherlands.

Shroom Goblin says:
