This week's guest is Dr. Rachel Barrie, Master Blender for historic single malt scotch brands BenRiach, The GlenDronach and Glenglassaugh. I caught up with Rachel while she was in Los Angeles celebrating the release of the much anticipated The GlenDronach 15 Year Old Revival. The GlenDronach brand is one of Scotland’s oldest distilleries, and is most noted for their sherry cask aging. Rachel and I sipped through this new release as well as two other expressions, while we discussed her journey over the last three decades to become Scotch Whisky’s First Lady.

This week's recipe is Rachel's favorite scotch-based cocktail...

Blood & Sand 3/4 ounce Scotch 3/4 ounce Cherry heering 3/4 ounce sweet vermouth 3/4 ounce fresh squeezed orange juice Garnish: orange peel Shake all ingredients over ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass, and garnish.
