{The Xactly team absolutely enjoyed working with Mark Rucker. We worked with him for both internal and external events. He was able to create an entertaining experience for our customers, prospects, and sales team.

{WOW…Can’t say enough about Mark, his Bourbon Life Podcasts and his knowledge of the industry. I was fortunate enough to be introduced to Mark during the pandemic. I hired him to do Virtual Bourbon Tastings so I could stay in front of my clients during the lock downs. Not only was Mark knowledgeable about bourbons, funny, entertaining, and genuinely a nice Kentucky guy; he made the experience so fun many of my clients have asked to use him for their client events.  It doesn’t matter if you are a bourbon drinker or not - Mark will pick bourbons that match your budget and show you how to drink and enjoy them.

{I met Mark very near to the onset of the pandemic through a mutual friend. I was introduced by way of a virtual bourbon tasting that Mark lead. I was immediately captivated by his deep and thorough knowledge of bourbon. I enjoyed that first experience so much that I asked our mutual friend for Mark‘s personal cell phone. I was delighted to find that he responded immediately and I actually had the chance to talk shop. Over the last year I have become a loyal listener of “The Bourbon Life.” Each podcast is filled with interesting stories and tasting notes. I can honestly say that I’ve purchased about half of the bottles that Mark has featured on his podcast. Whether you are a veteran or a newcomer to the wonderful world of whiskey, Mark is a fantastic resource. I highly recommend that you tuning in sooner rather than later!

{I had the opportunity to organize a virtual team building event with Mark. Mark took the team through three different tastings from various distilleries. His wealth of knowledge around not just the bourbon itself, but his knowledge around the distilleries made the event extremely fun and educational. While most of us have been bourbon connoisseurs for some time, Mark’s ability to teach us how to taste and pick out the various flavors with each bottle has given us an even greater appreciation and respect with each sip. I am already looking into scheduling a tasting with friends.

{Last year as the pandemic took hold, I was looking for a way to connect with my clients. Mark and I connected and started what became a series of bourbon tastings for clients, prospects and friends that turned out to be my best marketing initiative of 2020. It was a way to take my passion for and Mark’s knowledge of whiskeys to bring my clients together and connect in a difficult time. Mark has an amazing knowledge of the liquid, distilleries and master distillers that really brings life to the tastings. He is also completely flexible on the format based on what you as the host are trying to achieve.  I have several planned already in 2021 and will continue!

Bourbon is more than just a drink in a glass. Bourbon is a journey. It’s a story. A new friendship.

Bourbon is all about people (those who make it and those who drink it) and the stories they share.

And it’s all about those magical moments when friends, old and new, get together and create lasting memories together.
