Cask and Still Magazine Issue 3

Cask & Still’s third edition takes a journey into bourbon with comic genius Bernie Lubbers.

The stand-up comic is also a bourbon ambassador and bluegrass musician.

Our whisky bar of the issue takes us to the Flatiron Room in Manhattan, New York.

We meet Great British Bake Off judge Prue Leith, who, as well as being a cookery writer and journalist, is a keen lover of a dram.

We learn how Carrie Griffiths creates fine works of art in whisky and ink, and Johanne McInnes tells us why she is sick of whisky marketing.

In Flights of Fancy, we learn of the Scots authors who have enjoyed writing about a wee dram almost as much as drinking one.

Our Six of the Best feature this issue is bourbon-based cocktails from Orchid in Aberdeen.

You couldn’t make it up, but we learn about the story of the whisky salesman who is allergic to the water of life.

The bluffer’s guide this edition advises on how to invest in whily, while our Whisky Hero is Attile Peter, an master of the ago-old craft of cooperage.

As ever, our experts choose their six favourite drams.

Dr Brooke Magnanti – blogger Belle de Jour – discusses the joy of schnapps, and we feature brewing Cask & Still’s own beer at Stweart Brewing’s craft beer kitchen.

The edition concludes with whisky in Australia, as we meet Nathan de Tienne, blogger and state manager of the Malt Whisky Society.

This issue was originally published in May 2016.
