Neat & Mixed from Hops & Spirits

We welcome in Amine Karaoud (2:45 mark), co-founder of Old Louisville Whiskey Co, for our Q&A. He talks about why he and his wife launched Old Louisville Whiskey, what led them to owning Red Castle Liquors previously, selling off investments to launch the whiskey brand, being patient as they bought barrels, their bottle and label, their release strategy, opening a tasting room and more. 

What's Pouring Kentucky (0:30 mark): The Nulu Bock and Wurst Fest returns March 25 while Crave Taco Week takes over Lexington March 20-26. The Brickey Café & Play set for Newport on the Levee plus congratulations goes out to Louisville’s Bourbons Bistro, which was named Bar of the Year by American Whisky Magazine for the second year in a row.

Don't forget to check out the video on YouTube and our Facebook page. Plus, enjoy our Neat & Mixed Reviews and the Hops & Spirits Bar Conversations podcast, all available at
