ALL EPISODES

This week, the guys discuss packaging and why it matters. Deciding on the right look of your bottle and label is one of the most nerve-wracking experiences in releasing a product--there are a lot of options, and plenty of opportunities to go wrong. Do the...

This week, the guys talk about spirit categories! They discuss standards of identity, label approval, Malort, then quickly get distracted by other topics, including moon bourbon, which is not and probably never will be a thing. Enjoy!...

This week, the guys talk about Pay to Play in the distilled spirits industry. It should be noted that they are NOT experts on this issue, and if you are a distiller or distillery owner with questions on this topic, get yourself a lawyer. Otherwise,...

This week's episode is inspired by a listener comment on Reddit! Thank you u/ignorancepower for the constructive criticism and the questions. The guys break down the difference between marketing a GNS product vs those who start their distillery grain to glass, and Brian messes up...
