I thank every one of you for supporting this blog. I am very grateful for the people I have met through this blog and my bourbon tastings. I am grateful for my video partnership with Charlie Berry, the fantastic owner of Charlie’s Still on Main proprietor in Milford, Michigan. It is home to some of the best bartenders in Michigan. Tasting whiskey with Charlie makes every bottle an experience. Thank you, Carol and George, for the introduction. A special thank you to my friend Raj Patel who has graciously allowed me to sample from his magnificent whiskey collection. Raj, it is an honor.

So many people to thank

To the groups that have accompanied me on our Kentucky excursions, I hope you have enjoyed it as much as I have. To the many folks in the industry I have met, your passion makes me want to learn more and understand Kentucky Bourbon from its roots. Special thanks to the great Freddie Johnson of Buffalo Trace, who helped fuel my passion for Kentucky. He taught me it is much more than just drinking whiskey. To Andrea Wilson of Michters, Dan Calloway of Bardstown Bourbon Company, Bernie Lubbers of Heaven Hill, Stephen Fante of Limestone Branch, and Jimmy Russell of Wild Turkey, to name just a few, thank you for your hospitality.

More to come
