Bringing People Together Through Bourbon

Bourbon is a unique part of the United State’s culture.  Most people do not know the roll whiskey played in US history, but without it the US would not be what it is today.  US whiskey has produced more tax dollars than any other product barring petroleum. The US is a great nation, but unfortunately it is divided today.

Bourbon as a product takes time to make, enjoy, and tends to bring friends and family together when people drink it. Bourbon Real Talk hopes to use bourbon’s communal nature to sitting down with people, drinking some good whiskey, and having real conversations to get to know the reasons why we are different. Bias is broken down by connection, and connection is formed by compassion and understanding.  Pour a dram, relax, and learn real stories of people so that we can develop compassion and build connections that make us all better.

Bourbon Real Talk Episode 20- Life as a mafia wife with Gabrielle Gilmore

In this episode the ladies and I try Angel’s Envy rye and Mid Winter Nights Dram. Gabrielle was formally married to the right hand man of a mafia boss. She and her daughter Marcella lived a charmed life, but one day it all came crumbling down when they woke to a news article about the man they thought was a legitimate business owner being prosecuted for racketeering and other mafia related crimes. Fascinating story of excitement, tragedy, and rebirth!

Bourbon Real Talk Episode 19- Life as a Gay Couple with Michael and Andre

In this episode we review Mic Drop 3, Ambassador BP Rye, and Henry McKenna 10Yr SiB. We have a light conversation about what each of their journeys have been from childhood realizing they were “different”, coming to terms with their own sexuality, coming out to friends and family, their relationship, and all the struggles along the way.  This is an opportunity to gain some understanding and build a bridge of connection over a glass of whiskey! I hope that everyone who sees or listens to this episode can develop a sense of compassion and find a reason to be a little more accepting of those who live different lifestyles.  If you are open minded enough you may just discover that we are all more similar than you might think…despite our differences.
