EPISODE SUMMARY

Fred and Hannah talk about a wide variety of things, such as:

  • Fred traveled to Nashville Barrel Co. for this show, and ended up having a big surprise for his guest. Wait for it.
  • They kick off the interview talking moonshine. You know, “the stuff that will eat a hole through a Dixie cup,” per Hannah.
  • Fred explains bourbon tasting to Hannah, who usually only cooks with the spirit.
  • Three rye whiskeys start the session, with WhistlePig Boss Hog impressing Hannah quite a bit.
  • They talk about Hannah’s new “half record,” noting she is a “full record girl in a half record world.”
  • Fred brings up Canada and Hannah notes she has a Canadian on her “sh*t list.” Fred cracks up.
  • She talks influences, such as Reba McIntyre.
  • Fred gets sideways over a “floatie” in Hannah’s whiskey. Re-pour.
  • They talk about her TikTok cooking show and foods Hannah likes. She likes fried chicken and steak, and Fred tries to match a bourbon to what her palate likes. Doc Swinson’s 18 Year Old is the result.
  • The Parker’s Heritage impresses Hannah as being “buttery.” Fred concurs.
  • Fred gets to examine Hannah’s hairpiece.
  • Not surprisingly, Fred busts out some Michter’s 10 Year. Fred gives her a bottle to take home, and notes that it isn’t the type of bourbon one should cook with.
  • Then comes the surprise.
