Episode 113: October 14, 2007

It’s a good time to be in the whisky business. Scotch whisky exports are growing by 4 percent a year, and added up to $5 billion last year worldwide. We’ll talk with Scotch Whisky Association chief executive Gavin Hewitt about the political and business issues facing the industry. In the news…more new whiskies this week, a preview of the Christie’s whisky auction this December in New York City, and John Hansell gives us the details on the fall edition of Malt Advocate Magazine…along with a preview of WhiskyFest events in San Francisco and New York City.
