    Redemption

    Redemption

    It's a special Whiskey Hotline edition of Barrel to Bottle with David Carpenter of Redemption Whiskey. As the master blender, David likes to focus on the grains because they're the star of the show. David is also master blender for Bib & Tucker, a Tennesee whiskey brand that focuses more on the barrel than the grain. Finally, the Barrel to Bottle crew heads north of the border to try some 100% rye Canadian whisky, but it's not your typical Canadian whisky. Don't forget to check out our Redemption Handpicks, which are still available in limited quantities.
