Episode 274: August 15, 2010

There’s no doubting that Kentucky makes great bourbons, but a single malt? That hasn’t happened since 1919…until now. Dr. Pearse Lyons is the CEO of Alltech, which makes yeasts and animal feed supplements in Kentucky. He comes from generations of Irish coopers, and since Alltech already owns the Kentucky Brewing Company in Lexington, he decided to honor his heritage with a single malt. We’ll also get the latest on Shackleton’s whisky from Nigel Watson of the Antarctic Heritage Trust and learn more about Charity: Water from CEO Scott Harrison.
