It all started back in 2011 with one simple goal – to spread the Bourbon Gospel. And for the past several years we’ve had a hell of a time doing it. Through our shared love of America’s native spirit we’ve met new people, swapped stories and even starred in few of our own.

But, along the way, we realized we had stumbled into something far more interesting, and frankly more fulfilling, than whatever was in our glass at the time. A remarkable kinship – born in bourbon, but cemented through genuine curiosity for the world of liquor and the resulting unfiltered conversations we call banter. It’s a big reason we’re here today and the soul of what we’re planning for tomorrow.

We’ve got our sights on going beyond spreading the Bourbon Gospel. We’re looking to unite a band of curious drinkers, original thinkers and just downright candid folks over intoxicating conversation. In renewing our commitment to unpretentious booze reviews, approachable content, and honest barstool talk, we’re creating a community fueled by personal passion and opinion unlike any other.

With a colorful cast of characters – from professional palates and cocktail connoisseurs to casual drinkers and bottom-shelf dwellers – our opinions may be varied but our mission singular: to help you drink curious. Please, pull up a chair and let the banter begin.

Cease & Desist – Bourbon Podcast #13

This month’s Whiskey News sets a new precedent for breaking news in the bourbon world, as you won’t hear ANY of these hot tips on any other podcast. With so much breaking bourbon news, we skip the Craft Shoot this month and go straight to Bourbon Bullshit, the most popular bourbon podcast segment in the universe! Addressing things like home aging whiskey, Elon Musk’s attempt to buy a coveted craft distillery, and a true bonehead move involving Blanton’s dump dates, this month’s Bourbon Bullshit hits hard and gives you the attitude you’ve come to expect from Bourbon & Banter.

Is Bourbon Broken? Part 3 – The Distribution & Retail Problem

You see, a few days ago I got an email from their VIP Program announcing that they were doing a Charity Raffle for the “Right to Buy” one of 30 bottles of Col. Now, I’m not a wholesaler but if the MSRP of these bottles is $65, I can’t imagine their cost from the distributor is over $55. Still, not an issue for me until you get to the part that you don’t actually win the bottle, you still have to pay the retailer for the bottle, in person, at one of their locations. This seems more like a “right to buy” lottery where you buy a ticket and the real winner is the retailer, then the charity.

Bourbon & Banter & Barrels...Oh My! – Bourbon Podcast Special Edition

As the most honest podcast in bourbon, we don't pull any punches and we tell it like we see it. Pour yourself a drink, get comfortable, and listen to Bourbon & Banter & Barrels We’ll keep the warning below but let you all know in advance that Bob stayed home for this one, so the cursing is scaled back significantly. Warning: If you're not comfortable with unapologetic, independent thinking, plus a healthy dose of swearing, you might want to skip this one folks.

Is Bourbon Broken? Part 2 – The Secondary Problem

I’d like to think that eventually production will catch up a bit and some of the bottles that have been so scarce for the past 5-10 years will start to repopulate shelves. For Example, this past fall, there was a guy that was paying the delivery driver of a local grocery store chain to tip him off as to when the Old Forester Birthday Bourbon shipment was being delivered at each store. How long is it going to be before Buffalo Trace says “Hell, if all of these people are paying $120-$150 for a bottle of Blanton’s or Elmer T. Lee, If you think I’m wrong, how many of you would pass on a bottle of Blanton’s for $100 if you walked into your local store tomorrow?

@wonderbirdspirits gin is a classic London dry gin, and the requisite juniper is an Italian varietal that is softer in flavor. Taking care to individually infuse each of the 10 botanicals, Wonderbird builds upon the juniper with a beautifully harmonious union of fresh Meyer lemons, lemongrass, Angelica root, and coriander. Then come the more unusual notes: bay leaf, rosemary, Northern Mississippi red clover, tellacherry peppercorn, and a touch of terroir from pine needles plucked from the distillery property as an evergreen bookend.
