We Like Drinking Podcast

The truth is, most of us don't just drink one type of drink, we enjoy all kinds of adult beverages. The majority of the podcast and blogging world, however, sees the world through their own myopic drinking glasses. It's either all beer, all wine, or all spirits, in other words, they're boringly singular. We Like Drinking recognizes that the drink you crave depends on the situation, environment, mood and a host of other things. This podcast works hard to have fun first and maybe teach you something about your favorite drinks.

This week on episode 289 of the We Like Drinking podcast we’ll be discussing Highclere Gin, Downton Abbey, and we’re finding out how the two go together with Adam von Gootkin and Lord Carnorvon. So crack open that beer, uncork that wine, and let’s get drinking!

Panel Introductions And What We’re Drinking

  • Tonight we’re joined by our usual panel members, we have our California Sustainable Winegrowing Ambassador, and recovering Wine Blogger, Jeff Solomon, our commercial brewer and snake wrangler, John Ruyak, and I’m your host and certified specialist of wine, Jeff Eckles.
  • Our guests this week are the founders of Highclere Castle Gin. An ultra premium gin distilled from botanicals hand selected from the Highclere Castle’s English gardens and created to celebrate the beauty of a bygone era where elegance reigned supreme. Please help us welcome Adam von Gootkin and Lord Carnarvon.
