Do you know who owns the whisky and bourbon you drink?
Nothing like going to bed on your birthday and waking up to news that Japan’s Suntory Holdings Ltd is planning to purchase Beam for $16 billion. If everything
Big news in the bourbon world
Some weekend inspiration for you.
The last few weeks I’ve been taking to people about different Buffalo Trace Products. First I get— “haven’t seen Rock Hill Farms in forever”. Then- “Did they stop making Eagle Rare”. No Elmer, no, no Weller and Today texting another blogger that’s doing a tasting and looking for stock and said…
Been looking in Houston for Elmer for 2 months with no luck. Blantons has been pretty hard to find as well. Hadn’t been paying attention to Eagle Rare, but there has been Weller everywhere. I seem to remember Buffalo Trace had a press release about a shortage, about the same time Makers tried to lower proof. Guess it has hit.

Lindi Ortega. She’s well over a decade into her music career and during this long climb she’s attained a solid level of indie success, developing a devoted following and garnering some critical acclaim along the way. But honestly… I think this hardworking and talented girl should be way more famous by now. I hope 2014 brings her all the mainstream recognition and industry honors that she absolutely deserves. Similar to Kacey Musgraves, Lindi Ortega is a killer songwriter who puts her own contemporary twist on traditional country music. And also like Kacey, Lindi does it well. Really well. She writes from the heart. She sings from the soul. And she has this stunning voice (like a wounded angel) that’s -all at once- gorgeous and raw and powerful and frail, recalling hints of such legendary mistresses of country as Emmylou and Dolly. While Lindi has plenty of full-blown, polished videos on Youtube, I really like this impromptu backstage clip that simply shows and tells it like it is. No barriers or bullshit. Just girl with guitar. For anybody who’s never been to The Bluebird Cafe and wonders what it’s like… close your eyes and listen. On a stellar night, it’s just like this. I hope you dig it. Enjoy.
