Well, hello again. It has been a long time since my last post. Since I last shared anything on here I left a job, started a new job, lost my amazing cat, Ziggy, to a long battle with kidney disease, and…oh…yeah…the whole pandemic thing. Needless to say life has been crazy and maybe even unbearable at times for us all. But, we are not going to dwell on the negative here. It’s all vanilla and caramel. Peat and sweet. It feels good to be back.
I have a lot of new posts in the pipeline but I wanted to start out by sharing some fun news. While I have enjoyed whisk(e)y for a long time, most of my adventures in the field have been purely for fun. While I have had the pleasure of being a member of and current Board President for the Evansville Bourbon Society – including nearly a dozen private barrel picks – I have never done anything formally in the industry. That is, until a few months ago when I joined an amazing team (on a volunteer-basis) at a new spirits start-up, Curiada. While there have been online spirits retailers in the field for a while, Curiada stands out. A savvy and spunky bunch, this team is curating unique spirits that you will not find on the shelf at your local liquor store. From Scotch to Cachaca, there is something for the curious drinker in everyone.
As their Spirits Taster, I am in charge of offering an unbiased opinion in representation of the whiskey drinker who is looking for something unique and tasty. It has been a blast so far and I cannot wait to see what the future holds.
So, if your curious and you want to try something new, head on over to the Curiada website or follow them on Instagram @trycuriada. I guarantee you won’t regret it.
