The Catskill Provisions Honey Whiskey is the result of a collaboration between two small-batch New York producers. This week on The Speakeasy, Damon Boelte talks with Claire Marin from Catskill Provisions about the origins of her company, and how she linked up with Finger Lakes Distilling in order to produce a tasty honey whiskey using local ingredients! Tune in to hear Claire talk about her experiences keeping bees, and why the process can be so emotional. How does Claire's honey whiskey stack up against the larger brands? Find out what cocktails are enhanced by the collaboration whiskey only on this week's edition of The Speakeasy! This program has been brought to you by Many Kitchens. Music by Pamela Royal.

"The collaboration thing doesn't happen at a larger scale. It's faceless." [14:45]

What's the difference between blended whiskey and spirit whiskey? What are the origins of rye whiskey? If you're at all interested in the history of whiskey, this episode of The Speakeasy is for you. Tune in as Damon Boelte sits down and chats with friend of the show Nick Jarrett over some 1951 Old Overholt Rye Whiskey. Learn more about bonding regulations, excise taxes, the bottled-in-bond act and more history as it relates to rye whiskey. Bottoms up! This episode was sponsored by Cain Vineyard & Winery.

"You would make your own whiskey back in the day just like you would salt your own pork or chop your own trees down."

"The bottled in bond act was actually an attempt to achieve purity in whiskey."

--Nick Jarrett on The Speakeasy

This week U Look Hungry gets drunk on moonshine, or, rather, drunk on talking about moonshine. Host Helen Hollyman (alliteration anyone?) is joined by Colin Spoelman of Brooklyn's own Kings County Distillery who talks about the colorful history of illegally making spirits here in New York and the renaissance that craft distilling is now enjoying. Learn what exactly separates moonshine from other grain spirits, the importance of distilling equipment and barreling, and how some so-called "small batch" distilleries aren't what they seem. The episode is sponsored by Hearst Ranch.
