We love whiskey, we drink whiskey, we’ve seen whiskey get made. But what’s cool about an episode of Raw Craft I stumbled on with Anthony Bourdain, is how we meet the people behind the alcohol we all love. It’s combining generations of knowledge with unique skills and a real passion to just make good things. Thankfully, these guys make whiskey.
Bourdain dives into all aspects of the distillery with employees who have been around for decades, seeing the production process that goes from building barrels to tasting the final product.Because Bourdain is who he is, he’s fortunate enough to sample some whisky that dates back to the ’70s. The verdict: “You’ve gotta be pretty happy with this.”
