299 - Who owns J.W. Dant?, Bypassing Distributors, and Stimulus Spending on Bourbon Community Roundtable #55

The roundtable is back with another discussion about bourbon news and our take on it. We discuss Heaven Hill vs Log Still Distilling over the use of the Dant name and trademark, what does direct to consumer shipping in Kentucky mean now that distilleries can cut out the wholesalers, and if you were to spend your $1,400 stimulus check on bourbon, what would get?
