Episode 022 – Curtis McMillan on Traditional Whiskey Aging

For this week, we wanted to revisit a topic that we touched on in episode 14 with Tom Lix. We reached out to whiskey expert Curtis McMillan to chat with us about some traditional whiskey aging topics. Just a heads up, this is only the first part of the conversation. The rest of the interview will be coming up in the near future.

Just some quick background on Curtis:

Curtis is an expert in the craft of Whiskey in all of its form. He’s been featured many times on Common Man Cocktails on YouTube and has a long list of industry accreditations ranging from tequila, to gin, to beer. While attempting to obtain funding for his own distillery, he ran a batch at a friends distillery, and the resulting whiskey scored an 86 on Whiskey Advocate, which is the highest rating ever for a micro distilled whiskey. He currently works for Anheuser-Busch as a high end brand ambassador.  

You can connect with Curtis on twitter, or learn more about his past at LinkedIn.



We won’t give away too much from this episode, so just go listen!

Until next week!
