WhistlePig Founder, Origami Sake, & Best Margarita Tequilas

WhistlePig Founder Raj Bhakta parted ways with the rye whiskey brand in 2019 after a contentious split. He’s now released Bhakta Spirits 2013 Bourbon. Did you think he would be back in the business so quickly? Bhakta is laser-focused on the concept of vintages and will continue to push the envelope and in the meantime, this is available for $150.

Origami Sake has opened a new 22,000 square foot operation, right in the center of America's rice crop - Arkansas. Did you know that nearly 50% of the US rice is grown there? Well, it’s a great coincidence that the water is also great for rice, with a mineral content and pH similar to rice growing regions in Japan. The timing of the Hot Springs operation appears to be spot-on too, as Sake demand and production have been steadily growing outside of Japan in recent years.
