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 13- Life in whiskey club with Kristopher Hart

In this episode Kristopher Hart shares his Four Roses Single Barrel Selection (that tastes exactly like cigar smoke), and we talk about what it is like to be an active member in the whiskey community.  We even get a little psycho analytical on ourselves and try to interpret why we respond to drama the way that we do. Light hearted and very informative for anyone wanted to get involved in the whiskey community or a whiskey lover who is trying to develop connections to get access to rare and allocated bottles.

Bourbon Real Talk Episode 12- Life In Law Enforcement with Craig Smith

In this episode we review Buffalo Trace Antique Collection (BTAC) William Larue Weller (WLW) and we discuss what life is like as a law enforcement officer. We discuss police training, stresses, how to properly interact with LEOs, and what it is like in law enforcement with so much media scrutiny. He tells amazing tails and discusses how the Black Lives Matter movement has impacted law enforcement. I was so shocked at how much information is missing in the general public that EVERYONE should know about interacting with law enforcement.  The information in this episode could save lives!
