Bourbon Real Talk


Bourbon: Real Talk is a podcast where the host Randall Sullivan sits down with a guest over a drink and listens to their story. The purpose of the show is to used whiskey's connective nature to bring people together who might not have otherwise formed a relationship. We are building cultural bridges one drink at a time.

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 Mexian Whiskey, and the un-sexy truth about judging spirits competitions.
