Honest Reviews / Workshops & Tastings / Creative Copywriting

Cheers!

I’m a Whiskey Consultant and Barrel Geek, a proud member of the Bourbon Mafia, a Contributor for Bourbon & Banter, a Certified Bourbon Steward with the Stave & Thief Society, a copywriter for distilleries, and I enjoy working with folks in the whiskey industry. If it is whiskey-related, I am interested.

I also host workshops and tasting events at distilleries, bars, liquor stores, or at your private event.

Transparency is my lifeblood and, in my opinion, the only way to protect my reputation.

Today is Bottled in Bond Act Day. You may be asking what on Earth that means, and that's a perfectly fair question. Back in the 1800s, a lot of shenanigans were going on with whiskey. Rectifiers were mixing all sorts of toxic things into whiskeys to make stocks and dollars go further. Think of things like turpentine, tobacco spit, etc. Consumers were getting ripped off with less than real whiskey and, in other cases, sick (or worse). To make whiskey safer and guarantee quality, Congress passed the Bottled in Bond Act of 1897, and President Cleveland signed it into law on March 3rd of that year. What, exactly, does the Bottled in Bond Act require? First and foremost, it must be a product of the United States. Add to that it must be the product of a single distiller at a single distillery during a single distilling season (January to June or July to December). It must be aged at least four years in a bonded warehouse under US government supervision and bottled at precisely 100°. Finally, the label on the bottle must state who distilled it and, if bottled elsewhere, where it was bottled. Essentially, Bottled in Bond takes out the marketing tall tales and leaves little creative wiggle room. Also, it is a guarantee of purity and quality.

Niemuth’s Southside Market in Appleton, Wisconsin invited me to review its three newest private barrel picks: RyeBon, Backbeat, and Fifth Wardses. I hold stores to the same standards as distillers. Check out my review to see how these turned out.

Good morning. Today is Rare Disease Awareness Day. We're supposed to wear zebra stripes to show support. This shirt is as close as I can get, plus it directly shouts out CRPS for my wife. #raredisease #rarediseaseday2024 #crpsawareness #crpswarrior #crps

A rare IG photo of me and Mrs. Whiskeyfellow...

It has been a while since I posted about Dad’s suspenders. This was a project I started when my father passed away 1-1/2 years ago. I started collecting distillery lapel pins and put them on his black tuxedo suspenders. Things have grown to the point where a second set of suspenders came into play – the brown ones belonged to my father-in-law, Hooter, who passed away almost seven years ago. These suspenders hang in my Whiskey Library, and I see them almost all day while I work. It is like Dad and Hooter are here with me. Dad loved traveling to Europe and Asia. His suspenders get the world distillery pins. Hooter was a USAF Vietnam veteran and a huge patriot, so his suspenders hold the American pins. The original idea was Mrs. Whiskeyfellow’s, and I’m so glad I listened to her. #whisky #whiskey #memorial #father #dad #distillery #collection #pin #lapelpin #suspenders
