This week on @thewhiskeytrip Podcast, @bigbourbonchief is in New Orleans, Louisiana for a Bourbon festival so why wouldn’t he visit the historic @sazerachouse and the Willy Wonka of Whiskey himself, the one and only Matt Ray ...(@itsmemattray), Experience Team Leader?

Matt takes the big man to school as only a former teacher could do, educating him about Sazerac, Bourbon Street bartender life, and the best places in New Orleans to grab a cocktail and dinner.

Of course, Matt makes the classic Sazerac cocktail for Big Chief - traditionally a combination of Cognac or Rye whiskey, Absinthe, Peychaud's Bitters, and sugar, although Bourbon whiskey is sometimes substituted for the Rye and Herbsaint is sometimes substituted for the Absinthe.

Listen in as Matt and Big Chief sip on the oldest known American cocktail and let them bring The Big Easy to you.

Video killed the podcaster. Seriously.

We’re all set up to try to record The Bourbon Life Podcast with video tonight for the first time.

5 in-studio guests and 1 remote guest definitely made this setup interesting.

Here’s the setup:

- 5 Shure SM7Bs running... through Cloudlifters into the Zoom Podtrak P8 to capture audio of in-studio guests

- Lenovo Yoga Laptop running SquadCast to capture the remote online guest audio (and video) using the Podtrak P8 as a USB interface

- 3 different Sony cameras (Sony a7rIV, a6000, DSC-RX100IV) connected to the Atem Mini Pro via HDMI and set up to capture video of 5 in-studio guests

- Laptop running HDMI output to Atem Mini Pro to capture video of remote guest through SquadCast

- Atem Mini Pro running with 4 HDMI inputs (3 cameras, 1 laptop) to capture video of 5 in-studio guests and 1 remote guest and to act as video switcher between the 4 video inputs

- Atem Mini Pro connected to external Dell monitor via HDMI for multi-camera viewing and monitoring

- External 2TB SSD drive connected to USB output of Atem Mini Pro to capture and record the video output of all video sources (to be purchased today)

Will it all work?

I have no idea. Hahaha.

We’ll find out tonight at 7pm.

But I’ve thought it through in my head a million times. I’ve even diagramed it out 2 or 3 times.

I’ve just never taken the time to set it all up because it was a huge pain in the ass.

Fingers crossed it all works.

I had a great time this afternoon hanging out with Master Blender extraordinaire, @ashley_barnes_tsg, and even brought home a few bottles of the brands that she has worked with, including @lucky7bourbon, @davidsonreserve, and even the 2016 @fourrosesbourbon 2016 SBLE (while she was at Four ...Roses).

If you’re not familiar with Ashley and the work she is doing with The Spirits Group, you definitely need to be because she is killing it.

Do yourself a favor and go back and check out Episode 144 of The Bourbon Life Podcast with Ashley.

You’ll be happy you did.

Hey, when you’re drinking your Bourbon it’s always smart to drink some water too.

And what better way to enjoy your water than out of a beautiful, new, sand-carved The Bourbon Life pint glass from @crystalimagery.

We’re gettin’ pretty fancy now. 😊

It’s #followfriday and today I’m enjoying some delicious Bourbon from our good friends, @kentuckysenatorbourbon.

If you’ve never tried their Bourbon then you definitely need to track some down.

Rumor has it that there may be a new release coming soon so be sure to give ...them a follow to keep up with everything that’s going on with them.

In this Episode of The Bourbon Life Podcast presented by @visitlex, Matt and Mark spend some time hanging out with Dr. Nicole Saphier (@nicolesaphier_md), Radiologist & Director of Breast Imaging at Sloan Kettering, Author, Speaker, and @foxnews ...Contributor.

They talk with Nicole about how she decided to become a Radiologist and the amazingly important work that she does in women’s health at Sloan Kettering; her work with FOX News, initially as a medical contributor, and how she got that role; and her most recent book, Panic Attack, and what we’ve learned from the recent pandemic and how the past three years have affected us all.

And since she’s not a big Bourbon drinker it was a great opportunity for the guys to walk her through some great Bourbons, including @basilhayden, @bardstownbourbonco Origin Series Wheated Bottled in Bond, and the 2022 Pappy Van Winkle 15-Year Old.

This was such a fun and truly informative Episode with someone who has been at the forefront of the pandemic from the very beginning and who provides some amazing insights into it all. (and some pretty damn impressive tasting notes as well)
