Hospitality Tales: With Davin De Kergommeaux

[dropcap size=”5″]C[/dropcap]anadian Whisky is about to get its due. From the moment Don Draper took a swig of his manhattan, we have become obsessed with bourbon based cocktails. After that, the Japanese swooped in and bought up whisky distilleries from Scotland all the way down to Kentucky, but like everyone else, they slept on the Canadian rye grain. If you’re a whiskey aficionado like the man I interview in this edition of Hospitality Tales, you owe it to yourself to jump on the Canadian whisky train. Davin De Kergommeaux, is a friend of mine that I met in New Orleans during Tales of the Cocktail, and as a fellow Canadian we hit it off pretty quickly. He wrote a book called ‘Canadian Whiskey, the Portable Expert”, he is the Canadian Editor of Whiskey Magazine, he’s responsible for the buyers guide for “Whiskey advocate Magazine”, and conveniently, he lives in my city. I had a fantastic conversation with Davin, and I highly recommend checking out the interview below.
