Whisky. The Wall Street Journal. This Friday!

November 17th, 2009

You would think I have enough to keep me busy with Malt Advocate, WhiskyFest, WDJK, Twitter, etc. Well, I do occasionally take on some freelance assignment.

As you know, I recently participated in the History Channel show on “Whiskey”, which just ran again this past Saturday. Well, this Friday (November 20th) I have a 2,000 word whiskey section going in The Wall Street Journal.

The special whiskey section covers some of the fundamentals (how whiskey is made, what distinguishes one country’s whiskey from the next, appreciating whiskey, etc.). I also address many new trends in whiskey (designer whiskies, artisanal distilling, extreme peating, no age statements, etc).

We even reached out to master mixologist Gary Regan and he added a great cocktail piece to the section, which includes a few really nice cocktail recipes.

Pick up a copy if you can this Friday.

    John, is this a special advertisement section? I seem to remember it from last year or before.

  2. John Hansell says:

    Yes, we did one last year around this time too. This one is different in that it includes new trends and the cocktail section by Gary.

    Love it, will definitely check it out. Thanks for the heads up!

  4. Hello John,
    If they have your story available online please let us know, post a link so us that can’t buy a copy at the newsstand can still enjoy what you have to say.

    Liked your article in the WSJ. Also, liked the glass on the first page, do you know who makes it?
