    Bonus Episode: The Water Of Life Interview - The Questions We Never Asked

    Bonus Episode: The Water Of Life Interview - The Questions We Never Asked

    We recorded this bonus episode WAY WAY BACK after our in person event when we interviewed  Greg W Swartz, ‘The Water of Life” Producer and Director + Gez McAlpine, representing Bruichladdich, Remy Cointreau National Manager. We had a bunch of questions we never got to ask them at the time, so here are 'The Questions We Never Asked'.

    If you've seen the film, this episode has some great BTS chat and stories from the making of that will make you want to watch the movie again... and if you haven't see it yet, you'll want to fix that immediately.

    A couple of special appearances from Jenna AKA @Whiskyagogirl, Rab McEachern Bruichladdich Brand Education and Academy Manager, and music from Fraser Shaw (www.frasershawtrust.com).

    About the Film:
    The Water of Life - A Whisky Film is a feature documentary that focuses on the craftsmen, chemists, and renegades at the heart of the whisky revolution that turned the stagnant scotch whisky industry of the 1980s into the titan it is today.

Dram Fabulous

Fantastic podcast that even though it’s only 8 episodes in has already taught me so much about scotch. The banter is great too, it’s nice to learn something and have a laugh at the same time. Definitely making whisky more fun for the relative newbie drinkers!
