The Last Drop
Distillers is known for acquiring extremely old and rare
spirits from across the world. We chat with Rebecca Jago, Managing
Director of The Last Drop Distillers, to hear their story. It's an
interesting history of generational knowledge and their release of
the 1980 Buffalo Trace is what caught our attention. We even got a
chance to try it on a past Whiskey Quickie and it blew us away.
Listen to hear about their partnership with Sazerac and how they
plan to sustain their business model.
