We proudly present your March 2019 Whisk(e)y Warrior. He’s a whiskey Knight-errant questing for quality. Searching for the one true warmth of a Kentucky Hug. He crusades across the rugged range, from storm slapped shores to parched dry counties. He’s a holy pilgrim sent to tame the barbarous Bourbon land. He is…TONY FREUND!
Zac: Where in the country are you living?
Tony: I’m in Bellevue Washington right outside of Seattle.
