Cartel Hour By Cask Cartel 35: History in a Bottle - Bhakta Armagnac with Raj Bhakta
Play • 1 hr 1 min

Raj Bhakta sometimes comes off as a larger than life character. As the founder of Whistlepig, he got a chance to take a neglected stash of liquid and create a brand. He’s taking that same playbook and applying it to Armagnac with Bhakta Brandy, with the same kind of Wild West spirit of leading boldly into uncharted territory.


We chat with Raj about this historic liquid, which has up to 150 year old juice, the story it has to tell as well.
