Happy National Bourbon Day!
I got to spend some time with Jim Rutledge recently. He shot a segment with us for our upcoming movie, Blending is Trending. I mean you go into it knowing he's bourbon royalty, but having never met him before, you can't prepare for how awesome the experience actually is. He's a straight forward guy with an incredible amount of knowledge. The shoot for the film went great and he will be a highlight in that documentary. He's still working on the details for his distillery, J.W. Rutledge. I look forward to him getting everything in place and breaking ground on a location. That man needs to be making bourbon. #crazymadrespect

The Bourbon Daily is a unique entity in our podcasting lineup at the ABV Network. Imagine searching for a podcast about bourbon and you download that show. What's going on?!?!? It's a group of friends talking bourbon and laughing. Even if you are intrigued enough to stick around for a second day, the lineup changes and it's different people. I always think the large group of personalities and the fact the show is completely different each day is the show's greatest strength for our loyal listeners... and greatest weakness for new listeners. Jason Brauner, of Bourbons Bistro fame has come up with a way to combat this. He's going to do a two-part interview with me where I talk about myself/the show on the first one and a second one about our cast of characters and how I met them. Look for these shows to air July 24 and 25.
