168 – Bourbon & Beyond Wrap Up, Master Distiller Shuffle, and 1933 Old Taylor on Bourbon Community Roundtable #24

A first ever, in-person recording of the Roundtable crew! We got rained out from Bourbon and Beyond but we’re not going to let that stop us from sharing some funny stories and cracking open a 1933 Old Taylor. We also take the time to talk about the Master Distiller shuffle happening at Heaven Hill, Maker’s Mark, and Jim Beam.

  • We start talking about the actual roles of Master Distillers and the transition we’ve seen from Four Roses with Jim Rutledge
  • Denny Potter from Heaven Hill is transitioning to Director of Operations to Master Distiller at Maker’s Mark. Was this the right move?
