WhiskyCast Episode 215: August 28, 2009

A bit of Irish distilling history is being brought back to life this weekend, if only for one day. Commercial shipping along Ireland's Grand Canal ended 50 years ago this year...shortly after the closing of the Locke's Distillery in Kilbeggan. Cooley brought the Old Kilbeggan Distillery back to life two years ago, and now, whisky
and history buffs are recreating the shipping of whiskey casks from Kilbeggan to Dublin to honor the surviving men who sailed up and down the Canal. In the news, more political problems for Diageo, an anniversary bottling for Johnnie Walker, new whiskies from Connemara and Bruichladdich...and much more!
