WBSE Roundtable Series
In partnership with The Water of Life – A Whisky Film, the WBSE Whiskey Network is introducing a monthly series of introductions to the world of Scotch whisky.
Whiskey Network Co-Owner’s Bill Varnell and Chad Cadden along with Mindy Schwartz, Editor in Chief of the Whiskey Network Magazine, will guide you from the dark and stormy coastline of Scotland, to the sunny hills of the Highlands, and back again with guest-hosts from various Scottish distilleries. Each month’s roundtable is sure to educated and enhance your whiskey (and whisky!) drinking experience.
In between each month’s event, be sure to start your journey with a screening of The Water of Life – A Whisky Film!
July 2021 A Jim McEwan Retrospective
July is Jim McEwan Month at the WBSE
Contributing editor Mark Pruett sat down with Jim McEwan and the crew from The Water of Life – A Whisky Film to get a behind the scenes look at the collision of filmmaking and whisky. Read the interview in the upcoming July issue of Whiskey Network Magazine.
“A great story I remember is that I was working in Australia and making whisky. They came down with the crew and we’re sitting at 6am with the sunrise over Byron Bay. There is a drone coming in off the water and with the rising sun behind me. I asked myself the question, “Jim McEwan, how the hell did you get here?” You’re sitting on the beach in Byron Bay, drinking a single malt at 6:00am and there is drone flying overhead. What has happened to you?”
