History Channel’s “Whiskey” show debuts tonight @ 8pm

March 17th, 2008

St. Patrick’s Day is the only day I try to avoid Irish pubs. Far too crowded for me.

If you feel the same way, you might want to tune into the History Channel tonight at 8pm. The Modern Marvels series is debuting a one-hour show on whiskey (and whisky). I haven’t seen it yet, but I know that they went to Scotland, Ireland, Canada, Tennessee, Kentucky, Colorado and New York to film it.

If you’re wondering why New York, they interviewed me (at the Brandy Library). I’m told I’m in the show. I wasn’t involved in the editorial aspect of the show, so I have no idea what to expect. Still, it should be an interesting hour. I’ll offer my thoughts on the whole thing right here tomorrow morning.

And if you are braver than I and you are heading out to the pubs, they’re going to rebroadcast the show at Midnight.

    John, you were the man tonight. Great presence!
    Do I understand that there will be more releases in that series?

    Thanks guys. I was in the show a lot more than I thought I would be. Overall I thought the show was pretty good. I was looking for mistakes but I didn’t see any. (But then again, I had a whisky or two in me at the time.)

    The DVD will be available on May 5, 2008

    Thanks for the info. I am surprised they didn’t make it available the night of the first showing, but reality is not always what you would like it to be.
