The 2 Gordons return with Episode 6 focusing on one subject which is rare for an episode as regular listeners will point out. We uncover the world of Independent Bottlers. Somewhat confusing to some, a source of gems to others. We interview Mark and Kate Watt who setup their own business earlier in the year, Watt Whisky. We look at the challenges, logistics and steps needed to setup the structure and then understand the process for obtaining the casks to then bottle your own whisky.

In an ever-confusing world wouldn’t it be reassuring if there was a podcast where the only topic of conversation was Whisky and where the hosts talked and drank nothing else?
