The unofficial podcast of bourbon by two English gents Mr Pie & Mav
Bourbon Of The Year 2019
Well sort of…
This is the yearly raw unedited recording of Mav and Mr Pie sitting down trying to work out their top ten bourbons of the year and, of course, pick the all-important winner to be crowned our BOTY (Bourbon Of The Year).
We just hit record and then set about discussing the list, so don’t complain about the sound quality or the number of times Mav says ‘erm’ or when Mr Pie bangs the mic. You have been warned.
If you're still with us after that warning, and want to see behind the scenes of how the Gents come to their decision, then grab a dram, settle in a comfy seat, and listen along to 2 guys spending over an hour creating a list.
Bourbon Of The Year 2018
Hello, long time no see!
The Gents are back with their first podcast in 6 months. So what momentous event could have caused this return you ask? Well it just so happens to be that time of year again, where the Gents get together to deliberate over their choice of ‘bourbon of the year’ and record it for your listening pleasure.
This is a raw unedited recording of Mav and Mr Pie sitting down trying to work out their top ten bourbons of 2018, and of course pick an overall winner to be crowned our BOTY (Bourbon Of The Year). We just hit record and then set about discussing the list, so we really mean it when we say this is for the fans.

Episode 28 - You Can't Stop The Squeak
This is last ever episode of the Bourbon Gents podcast. Ever!
We would like to thank all of our listeners who have been with us on this journey over the last 2 years. Both Myself (Mav) and Mr Pie have had a blast recording the show and getting all your feedback - which admittedly at the start was mainly about how bad the audio quality was :)
We decided this would be the last episode about 15 minutes before we recorded so we ended up throwing the normal format out of the window and instead just messed around for 45 minutes. So please don't expect any bourbon related content in this one. It's just Mav and Mr Pie having a laugh for the final time on the podcast.
Episode 27 - It Makes Your Hands Look Bigger
In this episode the Gents manage to get the audio back under control and don't sound as much like they are recording in a tunnel. Among other things we also review Hudson Baby Bourbon, discuss Wild Turkey's new offering, and keep up our terrible track record in the Blind Taste Test section.
For those #TOOFT fans out there we do another theme tune related favourite (we get the most feedback about those ones) along with 2 quick fire faves as we realise we've run out of time.
Episode 26 - The Jingling
In this episode (the first numbered one in over a month) we get back to basics. No World Cup draw, no April foolery, just the good old Bourbon Gents podcast you know and love - or at least kinda like.
The Gents tiptoe through a gender minefield, face off in a Bourbon Battle, review Weller 12, and do a blind side by side comparison of Elijah Craig 12yo and the new NAS Small Batch. Can we tell the difference? Listen on to find out.
And, as always, we bring you another round of #TOOFT. One 3rd of which is us discussing our favourite person called 'Dave'.
P.S - We don't know why this episode sounds like we recorded in a tunnel. Normal sound quality will return next time we hope.
As the Gents have been busy with the World Cup for the past month we haven't been able to record our regular scheduled podcast. Never ones to disappoint their loyal listeners we have instead a rare 'treat' for you.
Long long ago, before the Bourbon Gents even existed, and before we had a website, we used to record podcasts to pass the time while we worked abroad. We never published these anywhere and only our work colleagues ever heard them... until now.
For one time only, sit back and listen to Mav and Mr Pie back in good old 2012, when we knew practically nothing about bourbon and had no idea what we were doing.
Hope you laugh at this as much as we did!
NOTE: - We have since revealed that this was an April Fools joke! Well done to all who spotted it and 'haha' to all of those who believed it ;)

Everything you never wanted to know about bourbon, and laugh out loud funny! I never go on a dog walk without it!
Easily the best British bourbon podcast
I'm a big fan of the bourbon gents and as a uk bourbon drinker, their viewpoint and experiences with finding and tasting good American whiskey mirror my own. Have a glass of Pappy on me, gents!
Awesome podcast !
