Description

A podcast for lovers of wine, beer, liquor (incl. whisky, whiskey, bourbon, vodka tequila etc) and cocktails, Drinks Adventures hosts wine makers, brewing and distilling experts, sommeliers, bartenders & more.

Back in Season Four of the show, we met Thomas Mooney, co-founder and CEO of Westward American Single Malt Whiskey.

Westward is brewed like a pale ale, distilled like a traditional single malt and aged in new American oak, like a bourbon.

The emphasis on the brewing stage of the process came naturally for Westward’s other founder, Cristian Krogstad, and head blender and distiller, Miles Munroe, both of whom come from a brewing background.

I caught up with Miles while he was in Sydney recently to launch Westward’s new cask strength expression, which follows a series of releases that have proven very popular in Australia, Westward’s biggest market outside the US.

This is a special episode of Drinks Adventures, produced with the support of Westward Whiskey, which is made in Oregon, USA.

And I started this conversation by asking Miles whether the American single malt whiskey scene had progressed since we met Thomas in 2019.
