    Join us in the Spirits of Whisk(e)y VIP Lounge!

    Spirits of Whisk(e)y explores the wide world of whiskey through high-profile and out-of-the-way makers, blenders, writers, ambassadors, innovators, and pioneers. And Kerry & Philip have been traveling the world virtually to bring these people—and their whiskey journeys—to you. As season one of our podcast approaches its finale, we realize just how many great stories we've put aside to share with you at a later date—and that date is here! Beginning in March, Spirits of Whisk(e)y is offering access to its new VIP Content page to loyal listeners and whiskey lovers who want more. And when it comes to whiskey, who doesn't want more?!

    The VIP Lounge opens with The Malting Floor, a new series filled with fantastic audio footage that ended up on the cutting room floor—or in our case, the malting floor. Grand Opening episodes include a chat with Nicole Austin about sour mash, charcoal mellowing, the George Dickel apprentice program, and the hidden meaning behind the numbers 1, 8, and 12. Also available to members is our talk with Fawn Weaver about how she became her own undercover boss, how her ladies-who-lunch date turned into an adventure with private investigators, and death row—plus we learn the true identities of Chick and Rabbit. And deleted content from this week's episode with WhiskyCast's Mark Gillespie also makes its debut on The Malting Floor.

    But wait, there's more! The grand opening of our VIP Lounge will also feature three videos of related content, including Kerry's first ever taste of whiskey wash (which we talked about with Laphroaig's Simon Brooking way back on Episode 1), a lost interview from 2015 when Kerry interviewed Jill Kuehler (interviewed with distiller Molly Troupe in Episode 8) when she was just opening Portland's Freeland Spirits, and a sample of Chef Louise Leonard'sCheese Blintzes with Sour Cherry Flambé from Episode 16. And this is just the beginning. We have lots more extra content in store for members of the VIP Lounge.

Plus hear Chef Louise Leonard's suggestions for pairing Clonakilty Single Grain with skate—one of her favorite fish—pan-fried with brown butter and accompanied by a salad of wild greens and strawberries.
