Episode Info

Episode Info: This week we talk with Mal Spense from Black Bottle Scotch. I meet Mal through my friend Hal Wolin, who I know from the USBG. Its the Bartender Journey Podcast # 208!  Listen with the audio player on this page, or subscribe on iTunes, Android or Stitcher Radio. If you are new to the show, the USBG is the United States Bartender’s Guild and there are chapters throughout the US. It’s a great organization. If you are outside the US you can look into the IBA. Cocktail of the Week: 1886’s Mamie Taylor Cocktail The Raymond 1886 is a Bar & Restaurant in Pasadena CA The cocktail is basically a Scotch Buck: 2 oz Blended Scotch Whisky Black Bottle ½ oz Lime Juice Angostura Aromatic Bitters Top with Ginger Beer Candied Ginger Garnish You could build it in a glass, but I think its best to put the Whisky, lime juice and Bitters in a shaker, give it a quick shake, add the Ginger Beer to the Shaker, and stain that into a glass filled with fresh ice. Book of the Week: The Curious Bartender: An Odyssey of Malt, Bourbon & Rye Whiskies by Tristan Stephenson Tristan’s books are so well researched and well laid out. There is so much valuable information in these books…he talks about the different classifications of whiskey, processes of how its made, has specific brand recommendations and then cocktail recipes. The Curious Bartender is a series of books by Tristan Stephenson … he has a new one about Gin, which we will talk about on an upcoming episode and maybe even get him back on the show again. He was on episode 122 of Bartender Journey. Don’t forget about our TipCup Page – its time to pay the folks who host out Podcast audio files again! Thanks!
