Welcome To Podcasting - Interview #1 Neyah White

Well, it isn't perfect and there are still some more kinks to work out, but I managed to get the first episode of our new weekly podcast online and able to download via this link. (Mac users make sure to press "option" while clicking on the link, PC users "right click").  The first episode is an hour long and features a conversation with former Nopa mixologist and current Suntory brand ambassador Neyah White.  Neyah was nice enough to enlighten me about the current state of Japanese whiskey, the plans for future importation, and his views on the Japanese whiskey culture overall.  We also talked cocktails, the SF bar scene, and discussed our thoughts about the average American whiskey consumer. Overall a great time, which hopefully translates over into this audio recording! 

Download it to your iPhone, iPod, or iTunes player and listen in!

Good interview David. Neyah is a great guy and his knowledge of all things booze is both amazing and interesting.

BTW - the Chichibu releases are truly interesting expressions. Heavily peated, double matured and Mizunara cask were all solid.

Looking forward to more interviews to come!

Very enjoyable and interesting. Thanks so much for doing it and putting it up. I just can't get enough of whisky podcasts. Really wish we could get the Nikka releases in the US

The podcast was great, I really enjoyed hearing your conversation with Neyah. Lots of good information, especially about Japanese Whisk(e)y and Japanese whisk(e)y drinking culture. Very cool, thanks for all the hard work!

Hey David, just listened to it. Great podcast. I saw Nyeah speak at the SMWS Extravaganza in LA and was impressed. I think he's one of the more knowledgable and interesting spirit reps out there (even if I do disagree with you guys about craft distilleries :)

I'm really looking forward to this as a regular feature. Keep it up.

Great podcast!!! I adore Japanese whisky and listen Neyah is always a pleasure, but I was hoping to maybe get a clearer picture on when we will get some additional styles. I understand the David you don't have any more info, do you? If not an exact date maybe, list of soon to imported expressions. Keep up the excellent work

Re: Cocktails After Work

The thing I like about making the bottled punches (and similar) that I've been making lately is that, sure, they're a fair amount of work up front. But, if you're lucky, then you've got something tasty, homemade, and boozy, that just needs some soda or booze for a tasty drink after work. No real mixing or hunting down this or that bottle. Very cool.
