All The Whiskey Podcasts You Should Add To Your Listening Queue.

The world of whisk(e)y is expanding at breakneck speed. There’s a seemingly endless stream of new releases and news daily, especially when you consider all the regions around the world experiencing their own unique whiskey booms right now. It’s a lot to get your head around and whiskey podcasts can be a good way to get into the scene and make sense of it all.

I tend to listen to a lot of whiskey podcasts throughout the week. I want to be up to date on what’s going on in the world of whiskey, get tips for my own collection/investments, and learn about bottles that I might want to actually drink. While there’s no single source for all the whiskey news from every region/style, there are plenty of great whiskey-focused podcasts out there that really dive deep into their local regions (meaning that if you want to be on top of whiskey worldwide, you’ll need a few sources).

Below, I’m listing 18 whiskey podcasts that I really dig. Most of these are in my regular rotation. But let’s face it, we all only have so much time in the day — so I’ve ranked these podcasts according to how much I listen to them. Each one has its own vibe and might be a little more your jam more than others. So go through the list, see what stands out to you, and dive in.

3. The Fred Minnick Show

The Fred Minnick Show

The Podcast:

The Fred Minnick Show is the gold standard of American whiskey knowledge and reviews, especially bourbon. Minnick — a much-lauded whiskey writer, historian, and curator — hosts one of the most popular podcasts on whiskey, full-stop. Minnick’s status in the industry also allows his show to really tap into big-name whiskey lovers to talk about their love of certain bourbons and whiskeys and taste them on the show with Minnick, which is always a good time.

Where To Start:

Actor Jeffrey Wright | ‘Story Can Carve Through Misinformation’ | Uncle Nearest‘ is the perfect example of The Fred Minnick Show. In just under an hour, you’ll be lulled into a sense of ease as famed actor Jeffrey Wright talks with Minnick about Nearest Green, bourbon and Tennessee whiskey history, and Wright’s work with Fawn Weaver and Uncle Nearest in creating one of the hottest whiskey brands of the past couple of years.
