Episode 141: April 20, 2008

Running a distillery is a tough job…but Ian MacMillan runs three. Oh, he serves as the master blender, too. Ian’s in charge of Burn Stewart’s three distilleries: Bunnahabhain, Deanston, and Tobermory…and he also is responsible for the Black Bottle blended Scotch. Ian tells us about his 36 years in the whisky business in this episode. In the news, a major — and unexpected — change at Maker’s Mark, as Kevin Smith replaces Dave Pickerell as master distiller.
