On this edition of the NOLADrinks Show with Bryan Dias, we chat a bit about the one-year anniversary of the NOLADrinks Show! We also, more importantly, chat about how you can help the victims of Hurricane Harvey. Then, we talk tequila and whiskey at Tales of the Cocktail with Carlos Rios of Blue Nectar Tequila, Han Shan of Hudson Whiskey, and John Cashman of Kilbeggan Irish Whiskey!

NOLADrinks Show – 8-31-17 – One-Year Anniversary and Tequila and Whiskey at Tales of the Cocktail
We start things off on the NOLADrinks Show with Bryan Dias discussing ways that you can help the victims of Hurricane Harvey in Southeast Texas and Southwest Louisiana. We name various aid programs and groups where you can give. Please give a listen and help as you can! Please visit our Facebook page to connect with the various efforts we mention on the show here…
We then talk a little bit about the one-year anniversary of the NOLADrinks Show (that this show represents). We want to thank everyone for the continued support and listenership here in New Orleans, Southeast Louisiana, around the US, and around the world! I am honored and privileged to do this show every week and, along with you, “explore the world of drink and food in New Orleans and beyond!”
Moving forward we wrap-up (save one) our interview series from Tales of the Cocktail. It was great to chat with so many interesting and cool people during the event and share those conversations with you!
First up, we talk with my friend Carlos Rios (pictured at left) of Blue Nectar Tequila. We talk about how we met by happenstance at last year’s Tales of the Cocktail and have a good laugh. Of course, we chat about Blue Nectar Tequila and what they are all about.
Next, Han Shan (pictured at right), Brand Ambassador for Hudson Whiskey, joins us to talk about their interesting program. They are an award-winning craft distiller out of New York and they make some delicious stuff that we taste and discuss.
Lastly, we talk with John Cashman, Global Brand Ambassador for Irish Whiskey with Beam Suntory. We talk about the release (actually, we get a sneak preview, at the time) of their Kilbeggan Single Grain Irish Whiskey. Some very nice and unique stuff. We also talk with John about how Irish whiskey is different than other whiskeys from around the world.
We want to send special thanks to our friends at Sylvain in the French Quarter for allowing us to tape numerous interviews at their spot during Tales of the Cocktail, including these three! Again, I really appreciate all of your support of the NOLADrinks Show during our first year of existence and look forward to more with you into the future!
