    Sexism in the World of Whiskey w Becky Paskin | ep. 224

    Sexism in the World of Whiskey w Becky Paskin | ep. 224

    While the industry as a whole has made some progress in regards to sexism, unfortunately there is still a long ways to go in regards to achieving true equity. One does not have to look very hard to find instances of overt sexist language in popular spirits publications or even demeaning imagery in the marketing of whiskey itself. To help us explore this issue more in depth, we are joined by Becky Paskin (spirits writer, co-founder of Our Whisky, and International Wine & Spirits Competition: Spirits Communicator of the Year for 2021.) So tune in as we examine the issues surrounding this complex subject and discuss steps that we can take as an industry to move forward.

    Focus on Health w Lauren Paylor & Alex Jump | ep. 223

    Working in the bar biz can be really taxing on you mind, body and spirit. In between the late nights of cocktails, shots and greasy food, it is easy to spend so much time taking care of others that we forget to take care of ourselves. Luckily, there are some good people in the industry who are trying to not only raise awareness regarding the importance of self-care, but they are also planning to do something about it. Which is why this week, we are joined by the founders of Focus on Health, Alex Jump and Lauren Paylor. So tune in as they tell us about their project and what they are doing to help improve the lives and longevity of today's bartender.

    The Fever-Tree Origin Story | Ep. 220

    The Fever-Tree Origin Story | Ep. 220

    While Fever-Tree Tonic is now found in stores around the world, there was once a time not so long ago when the idea of a premium mixer would have seemed ridiculous to the average drinker. Back then, tonic simply came out off of the gun with the average Gin & Tonic connoisseur having no idea what they were actually drinking. So how did the brand seemingly come out of nowhere, yet change the cocktail world forever? Tune in this week as we are joined by Fever-Tree co-founder, Tim Warrillow, and the United States CEO Charles Gibb, as we learn more about their story.
