Episode 485: June 27, 2014

Gordon & MacPhail's Michael Urquhart (L) and Ewen Mackintosh (R). Image courtesy Gordon & MacPhail.Michael Urquhart is retiring from Gordon & MacPhail in September, but the leader of the family-owned business calls it a natural “changing of the guard.” However, his successor is the first person from outside the Urquhart family to lead Gordon & MacPhail in its 120-year history. We’ll talk whisky and family with Michael and Ewen Mackintosh on this week’s WhiskyCast In-Depth. In the news, there’s another retirement as Bruichladdich’s Duncan McGillivray wraps up his 40-year career, the Bourbon Capital of the World is getting another new distillery as the Bardstown Bourbon Distillery brings a Bourbon Hall of Famer home, and we’ll catch up with the guys from Seattle’s Westland Distillery as they spread their wings with a new distribution deal.
