From Cask Cartel, this is The Cartel Hour.


Still Austin is making waves with their completely grain to glass whiskey and rye based gin, with many more interesting iterations to come. We chatted with Head Distiller John Schrepel and General Manager Brandon Joldersma about what makes Texas whiskey unique and why Austin is poised to be a leader in the next generation of American craft distilling.
