Wine Down w/ Laphroaig's Master Whisky Ambassador Simon Brooking and Master Distiller John Campbell
Wine Down is a weekly TV show about all things fermented and distilled. The show recently featured Master Whisky Ambassador Simon Brooking and Master Distiller John Campbell to talk all things Laphroaig.
Exec producer of the Wine Down, Michael Lustig, tells us, "This is the best non-wine show we've done to date." So, we wanted to share with our Whisky.com readers.... You can check it out here: http://youtu.be/ygm7TjToKLc
Here is some more background information on this episode:
Sonja and Brandon venture into the smoky depths of scotch with the makers ofLaphroaig, master distiller, John Campbell, and master ambassador, Simon Brooking. Laphroaig single malt wisky is globally renowned for its rich and peaty flavor, and Campbell and Brooking explain the process of distilling the amber delicacy just before catching a plane to return to Scotland. Information was shared, kilts were worn, and many toasts were made. Cheers!
