Whiskey Lore Interview: Seth Benhaim of Broken Barrel Whiskey
Whiskey Lore samples the three Broken Barrel Single Oak expressions using Mizunara Oak, Amontillado Cask (something Edgar Allen Poe fans will appreciate), and Scotch peat staves while discussing the history of light whiskey, a historic distillery in Kentucky that Broken Barrel sources from, and the concept of an Oak Bill™.
"With extensive time visiting distilleries, on his way to nearly 150, Seth has had the chance to find the best product, distillery, and team to create his "unapologetically authentic" lineup. We talk about future projects in the works that may or may not include a mix-up of Mezcal and Single Malt Whiskey... not joking... Come join us for a great chat!"
Spirits Of Whisk(e)y #35
"Hear how Seth Benhaim, Founder & CEO of Infuse Spirits and Broken Barrel Whiskey, started his own successful podcast, The Cartel Hour, with Co-Host and Producer Cameron Stephens. Together they survey the wide world of spirits from the very well-stocked comfort of The Infusery, in the Arts District of Los Angeles."
"We had the privilege of meeting with Broken Barrel CEO Seth Benhaim who gave us some great insight into their company, the industry, and whiskey. What they have done with their whiskeys is very different than most bourbons and ryes that are on the shelf and it came out great. Listen in to hear our interview with Seth. As always, thank you for listening and Keep it neat, friends."
"Seth Benhaim is the founder of Infuse Spirits and Broken Barrel. When he was 25 years old, he became the youngest brand owner to ever win Best-in-Show and Double-Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Our conversation covers a wide variety of topics including what you can and can't age in vodka, and how the world of traditional aged whiskey is fragmenting and what’s next for the entire industry."
What We're Drinking with Dan Dunn
"A long time ago, Dan went to a movie theater in Philly to see U2's "Rattle & Hum," and it changed the course of his life. Also, Dan and Emmy-winning writer comedian Tom Caltabiano get expert advice on infusing booze from Seth Benhaim and Cameron Stephens of the LA Spirits Society podcast.."
The Spirit Guide Society #35
"In the past decade, the craft distilling whiskey boom has led to some incredibly creative products; Infuse Spirits is no exception. Rather than distilling their own whiskey, Infuse and its founder, Seth Benhaim, purchase the whiskey and then use barrel staves to "infuse" the "spirit" with the exact flavor they're trying to achieve. It's an incredible process and creates something you should definitely be drinking."
