How to Taste Whisky with Eddie Ludlow

Our guest today holds many titles: author, speaker, liveryman at the Worshipful Company of Distillers, Keeper of the Quaich, and most of all, champion of whisky.

Eddie Ludlow founded The Whisky Lounge more than 10 years ago, with the purpose of introducing the spirit he adores to folks who might not know the difference between Glenmorangie and Glenfiddich. 

Now he has penned his first book, ‘Whisky – A Tasting Course: A New Way to Think and Drink Whisky’ with 20 individual guided tasting sessions. Whether you are a beginner to whisky or a pro, there is no way you can’t learn something from his book. Everything about it makes you want to pick up that bottle and serve yourself a dram.

On today’s episode, you’ll discover:

  • What instrument Eddie plays
  • How to pronounce Quaich correctly
  • Where Eddie would drink right now if he could
  • What Eddie’s favorite cocktail is
  • What he loves most about Whisky
