Slainte, Cask Chasers
Well, Cask Chasers, we have reached the end of Season 1 for the Cask Chasers Podcast. Before we take a break, the guys and I wanted to look back on the last 4 months, and 24 episodes, of what has been an incredible ride so far. From live episodes to all of our amazing guests, and everything in between, we take a look at some of our favorite moments. We started this podcast wanting to give everyone an equal platform to enjoy, learn and share the whisky world with each other. All along the way, we had a lot of fun. Join us as we take a look back.
Wilderness Trail Distillery
For all you bourbon lovers out there, we have another great distillery on the show to talk about their line of bourbons. This week we have the co-founder of Wilderness Trail Distillery, Dr. Patrick Heist, out of Danville Kentucky. Dr. Heist shares how Wilderness Trail emphasizes the use of locally sourced ingredients, and why they choose a slightly different process in mash and proof. We also discuss the importance of that perfect yeast combination during the fermentation stage, and Dr. Heist breaks down the science on several of the other distillation steps giving us a glimpse into the hard work that goes into making the amazing bourbon at Wilderness Trail Distillery.
Falls Church Distillers
This week we have the father son duo from Falls Church Distillers out of Virgina and they have called in to the Cask Chasers Podcast to discuss their great whisky coming out of the DC Metro area. Michael gives us a glimpse from the business and marketing side of distilling while his son, Lorenzo, breaks down the process on an impressive scientific level. It will leave you with a far greater appreciation for the amount of work that goes into crafting that perfect bourbon. The group from Falls Church Distillers reminded us just how much passion goes into a micro distillery and the results speak for themselves.

Top notch podcast!
The guys over at Cask Chasers are incredibly knowledgeable about whisk(e)y and the industry as a whole. Having listened to several of their podcasts, I’m now a subscriber and can’t wait for more content. We here at the East-West Whisk(e)y Group are all big fans, cheers 👍🏻🥃
Enjoyable for the whiskey novices and the masters
Although new to the podcast scene, it’s obvious from the first episode that these guys have a deep-seated love and respect for the art of fine whiskey spirits. While they may not love every dram, their tasting notes are thoughtful, and their reactions are genuine. If you’re new to whiskey, they walk you through the process of smelling and tasting in the first several episodes. For those who have been enjoying whiskey for years, they provide great background on the bottles and distillers, as well as price point for the bottles and whether or not they’re easily obtainable. The discussion points are always interesting, and they clearly do their research before each show, bringing fun and interesting facts from the distillers, processes and regions of these whiskeys, often with a little history lesson thrown in. I can’t wait to see where they take this podcast in the future!
Deceptively smooth and refreshing despite being over oaked
I was looking for a podcast in casket chasers (long time hobby) and stumbled onto this on. Decided to listen. It was actually alright. I might start drinking whiskey because of them.
