Today I had the pleasure to sit down with Chris McInerny while we enjoy a dram of Amrut Fusion. Amrut is a whisky from Indian and it happens to be a personal favorite of Chris.
Chris and his family are entrepreneurs from North County, San Diego, who own a couple of liquor stores and a Pizzeria. Bonsall Fine Wine and Spirits (76 and Mission, inside the Daniels Market shopping center) which is down the street from where I live. Stormy is the guy you'll normally see at that location.
Emerald Spirits and Pizza On Tap are next to each other in Vista. (78 and Emerald)
Chris is a very knowledgable person within the world of whiskey and definitely has a passion to discuss the topic. Within the audio podcast Chris tells us how he was introduced to the industry and his feelings on the direction the whiskey world is going. He also gives us his tasting notes on Amrut Fusion. Supporting the local shops, bars and just exploring the world of whiskey to find what you enjoy.
*We were recording inside Pizza On Tap and had to cut out so Mike Jr could open up for business :)
Thank you for sharing your time and whisky with me.
Listen to the full interview below:
As a fan of scotch and other whiskeys I was tired of looking up reviews for new whiskeys that just oozed of snobbery. I wanted to create an outlet for average Joe's who don't have a sommelier palate. Born and raised in Long Island, New York, I moved to San Diego, California in 2010 with my wife. I'm also a fan of MMA, pro-wrestling, comic books, video games and strongman. All subjects are topic for discussion on the podcast.
