Joe Micallef is a historian, documentarian, wine/spirits judge, wine producer, and many other things too numerous to name here. In this episode we discuss alcohol’s effect on the development of society, how the Russian navy was financed with alcohol profits, why KY and TN are the hub of US whiskey production, how rum helped the US declare independence from Britain, alchemy’s impact on alcohol production, how Tequila was once called Mexican Whiskey, and the un-sexy truth about judging spirits competitions.
