The Bourbon Life

Apr 16, 2024

This week on The Whiskey Trip Podcast, Big Chief takes listeners on a ride to Memphis, Tennessee to chat with Logan Welk President and Chief Operating Officer, from B. R. Distilling Company.

Logan takes the Big Man on a ride learning about the Blue Note Whiskey and B. R. Distilling Company. They chat about Memphis and its love of whiskey in Juke Joints that belt out the blues and give the city soul.

On the first half, they start the show with Blue Note Juke Joint, a straight bourbon whiskey which is a small batch at 93 proof. This is perfect for the 1920 Juke Joint on the banks of the Mississippi River.

To take the listeners into the break Big Chief pours a dram of their Blue Note straight rye whiskey. This is a 3 year old, 93 proof, 95% rye, 5% malted barley whiskey that is contract distilled at Green River. Perfect for any cocktail.

To close out the show, Logan and Big Chief sip on a straight rye whiskey finished with toasted French oak that is called Crossroads. A tribute to the place that is said to have given Robert Johnson his magic fingers and voice to belt out the Blues. At 100 proof to sip on in any juke joint.

This ride on The Whiskey Trip gives you another glimpse of something the big man loves - classic blues musicians like Al Green, Ottis Redding, and newer artists like Marcus King are always on Big Chief’s playlist.
