Episode 191: March 15, 2009

It wouldn’t be March without a look at Irish whiskies, and Heidi Donelon gives us a look at the history of Irish distilling. Her new Ireland Whiskey Trail website is a guide to distilleries past and present, as well as some of the island’s best whiskey bars. In the news, Vijay Mallya’s United Spirits is putting Whyte & Mackay up for sale, and Burn Stewart Distillers is up for sale as well. Ardbeg’s annual single cask is now available at the distillery, Jack Daniel’s releases its annual Scenes of Lynchburg bottle, and there’s a new charity blend made from the whiskies in Michael Jackson’s collection!
