Tasting Couch Podcast Show with hosts Forrest Cokely and Will Elger

Tasting Couch Podcast Show with hosts Forest Cokely & Will Elger talk Wine, Beer, Spirits & Food

Tasting Couch is more than day drinking or an excuse to open a bottle or wine or high proof whiskey before noon. It’s taking time out of our busy days to sample top products in the food & beverage industry, while giving reviews, talking to the brand owners and educating consumers.

Tasting Couch hosts Forrest Cokely and Will Elger talk spirits, wine, beer, mixers, food and so much more. They interview the creators of brands as they join them on the tasting couch. Dive into a craft bourbon or a wine sent to them from a new winery, each and every day is a different brand. The tasting couch podcast started after years of consulting for many different brands. Brands that would send products to review, give feedback/suggestions or want us to create seasonal cocktails. We would sit down with a brand or with the brand owner talking about their brand and each and every time we wished we could have recorded the session, and share it with consumers who love these brands and want to know more about them.

HOTMIXOLOGY

Hotmixology hosted by Dave Elger, a life-long affair with liquor started as he recalls his father bringing home rare or hand made liquors and educating him about the importance of quality drinks.

Dave spent many years professionally representing a multitude of top liquor brands including Cabo Wabo, Pucker and Jim Beam, and launching some top brands of his own. Dave’s passion, personality and impeccable taste in fine spirits earned him the privilege to work directly with the Jim Beam family and with Cabo Wabo founder Sammy Hagar.

Today, and after decades of top experience, Dave is considered the “foremost authority on everything booze,” and is a leading industry expert regularly called upon by the media and industry heads. So hosting Hotmixology every week is the highlight of his and many viewers week. Dave’s passion for cocktails and entertaining pours through as he helps to shine the spotlight on some of the country’s best bartending talents while educating his audience on the art of mixology. Each week, Hotmixology brings its viewers uniquely themed episodes and accessible, fun-to-make cocktails in a “try this at home” style — perfect for any amateur mixologists interested in learning how to mix the perfect cocktail or expert mixologists who continue to learn and absorb inspiration from others in the field.
