Welcome to

The Bourbon Lens

Nov 2, 2020

We are joined by Jackie Zykan, Master Taster for Louisville's Bourbon Brand, Old Forester. Jake and Michael sat down to discuss the brand's growth and her rise through the ranks.  We sipped Old Forester Rye Whiskey during this episode, which is another staple to add to any bar.  We also discuss the growth of the lineup from the Whisky Row series, Statesman, and bringing back President's Choice.  You'll learn how Jackie’s background in the bartending industry helped her transition to this beloved brand.  With an endless supply of Old Forester, do you want to take a guess at Jackie’s go-to Old Forester pour.  With a lot of new releases hitting shelves, Jackie even teases about more to come in the next few months.
