On this episode of Barrel Room Chronicles, A Glass Apart Author Fionnán O’Connor, shares how his academic career collided with the water of life. As an undergrad at UC Berkeley, he taught a one unit class in the  Celtic Studies department about the amber spirit. This experience helped lead him into his post graduate work on the history of lost Irish  Whiskeys. With a grant from the Irish government and the cooperation of Boann Distillery, O’Connor will be the first person to have a PHD in “Ghost Whiskey.”

Also appearing on this episode is Jonathan Pogash, The Cocktail Guru. Pogash tells how he became one of the most  premiere cocktail consultants and bartenders for restaurants and spirit companies in the nation.

Barrel Room Chronicles is a production of 1st Reel Entertainment and is distributed by Anchor.FM and is available on Spotify, Apple,  Google, iHeartRadio, Amazon and wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts.
