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.

33 STRAIGHT BOURBON WHISKEY AWARD WINNING WHISKEY

33 Straight Bourbon Whiskey is limited so try to pick up a bottle ASAP. The small release, small batch whiskey had a big following. They celebrate the events of 1933 that ended the Era of Prohibition in the United States. 33 combines distinct barrels, each aged for 6 years in a private rack house. The distinct flavors from each barrel are then expertly blended, at Cutler’s Artisan Distillery in Santa Barbara, California. With an end result being a very smooth whiskey with balanced sweet notes of honey, smoke, caramel, vanilla as well as spice, with a dry finish, I do like the fact that this is a higher proof (86 Proof) whiskey, you would not know it, yet when I wrote this I looked and was impressed once again at how smooth it is, Cheers!

Angel's Envy Award Winning Bourbon

Angel’s Envy Bourbon Review

Angel’s Envy Bourbon is sampled throughout every step of the finishing process, they blend every batch to taste. Rooted in 200 years of bourbon heritage, they create hand-finished spirits that aren’t afraid to improve on the classic tradition. Inspired by legendary Master Distiller Lincoln Henderson’s lifetime spent crafting fine spirits, Angel’s Envy is a masterpiece. The 5% of spirit lost each year during barrel aging is called the “Angel’s Share.” After tasting the finished whiskey, Lincoln joked that we’d finally gotten a better deal than the angels. And so Angel’s Envy was born.

Often describe as malcontents, for Angel’s Envy ‘malcontent’ means that they can never be satisfied with good enough, and better still isn’t the best. Restless creators who respect and celebrate the bourbon tradition, but try not to shackle themselves to it. Approaching each spirit that is finished with a craftsman’s passion to experiment and improve, and work every day to ensure that Lincoln Henderson’s exacting standards and legacy of excellence continue with each batch.

A small company, very particular about their finished spirits. While this might make their product a little harder to find, they will never sacrifice our quality. Also never hosted or sponsored a competition in order to ‘earn’ awards. All of our high rankings and accolades have been earned the old fashioned way—unsolicited.

Louisiana Lightning Whiskey Review

I was watching this weeks episode of Hotmixology and was introduced to Louisiana Lightning a clear whiskey has a tiny sliver of lightning in every bottle. The story behind Louisiana Lightning is all about “old Mr. Dufour” in a lightning strike in Amite City, Louisiana where he walked up, touched the lightning bolt “Silky smooth although it does give one a bit of a tingle.” After saying that he sliced off a piece of the lightning and the claim now is that there is a little tiny sliver of lightning in every bottle to make it “silky smooth.” Louisiana Lightning is an award winning corn-grain white whiskey distilled in Amite, Louisiana. Below are listed some of the many awards Louisiana Lightning Whiskey has received.

Attention to the well-being of our staff, training and effective communication are vital to a happy environment and the continued success of Wade.

Wade use the skills of an experienced team to select the best ceramic processes and materials to ensure we always meet the requirements of our customers. We employ a number of traditional processes such as slip casting, plastic clay pressing and extrusion as well as pressure casting techniques to ensure dimensional accuracy and quality replication of products. We use glaze, underglaze/enamel colour and print to decorate and finish the pieces.

State-Of-The-Art Factory Machinery, our vision of a new factory equipped with the most advanced, fully automated plant and machinery for ceramic hollowware production came to fruition in 2010 when it was officially opened by the Duke of Kent.
