  4. Everyday Bourbon Values

    Everyday Bourbon Values

    As high-end bourbons have continued to climb in price, and disappear from the shelves, it’s nice to have a few brands that deliver consistently great flavor and value. We’ve highlighted a few of The Whiskey Hotline’s favorites that scratch that bourbon itch without breaking the bank. In fact, they’re some of the best spirits values around under $30.

  5. Whiskey Hotline Hits the Road: Maker's Mark

    This trip took us from the Whiskey Hotline headquarters in Lincoln Park to a hole in the side of a hill in Loretto, KY. Normally we pick liquid from a barrel, but on this mission we were picking the wood.

  8. Bourbon Barrel Aged Wines

    Bourbon barrel aged wines have exploded in popularity alongside bourbon. We’re happy to offer three different takes on this up and coming style. These wines are aged in traditional oak and then finished for several months in used bourbon barrels to add complexity without the sweet bourbon notes overwhelming the wine.

  9. The Whiskey Hotline Hits the Road: Islay

    We visited Ardbeg first, and got an incredibly in-depth tour from distillery manager Mickey Heads. Our first impression was how shockingly small the operation is, at least in comparison to their marketing budget. Ardbeg only operates a single pair of stills. To put that in perspective Glenlivet has 28 pairs.

  10. The Whiskey Hotline Hits the Road: Campbeltown

    After a long drive across the lowlands and down the Campbeltown peninsula we arrived in the town of Campbeltown. Once the mecca of Scotch whisky with over 35 distilleries in the town, the number has dwindled down to just 3. Two of them are owned by the Wright family, Springbank and Glengyle. Founded in 1828, the Springbank distillery is a special place for Scotch lovers.
