STOLI SAVORS THE MUSIC OF JAMIE SUTTLE LIKE A FINE BOURBON

Hello there music enthusiasts all over the world, it is amazing to be back with you this week. I am so excited for you all to hear from the beautiful and so talented Jamie Suttle but before that lets check some music news. To kick off, collective management rights organisation GEMA wins its case with the regional court Munich I against file-sharing host Uploaded. The decision confirms that file-sharing hosts are liable to pay damages if they do not prevent the upload and distribution of copyright-protected contents. Next up is news on one of my favorite apps & energy drinks, TuneIn, the world’s largest audio network, announced a groundbreaking partnership with Red Bull Music Academy that brings its newly relaunched streaming platform, RBMA Radio, to TuneIn’s millions of monthly active users. TuneIn’s formidable reach and innovative listener targeting complements the cutting-edge music programming that Red Bull Music Academy has brought to the industry for nearly two decades. The partnership works to build a lasting audience for lovers of exclusive music, live performances, and in-depth conversations with artists from around the world. Now lets get to Jamie Suttle who is bringing her oWn take on a mix of country + rock + soul music. I caught wind of her from her “Flame” video on Youtube and have been hooked since. Join us as Jamie opens up on dealing with the summer heat, keeping her body & vocals strong, her favorite whiskey, and so much more!

Stoli: Where are we talking from today and how is your summer?

JS: I am coming to you from Dayton, OH. Summer’s here are mostly full of humidity and fair food!

Stoli: When the weather gets so hot and humid how do you like to cool off & relax?

JS: If I can’t find a beach, I’ll find a front porch with a breeze and whiskey on ice.

Stoli: When did you turn your passion for music into a full time career?

JS: Writing music has always been the constant in my life. It was always in the background and the stress relief from everything else. It never really occurred to me that I could make a career out of this thing that I loved until we released our first record. The first time someone I didn’t know came up to me after a set and told me that one of my songs helped them through a breakup, I knew I wanted to do this for real.

Stoli: You were born in Kentucky, would you say that is what set off your love for country music?

JS: Yes. My hometown and my family live and breathe country music. I am from Loretta Lynn’s hometown. The strength and bravery in her writing captured me when I was a little girl.

Stoli: I love your video for “Flame.” Tell us how you were able to transform the music into the visual we see in the video?

JS: Well first, thank you! The vision for the video is credited to our amazing director, Jason Kaufman. When we sat down for the first time to talk about the video, he took me completely by surprise with the depth and introspection he put into this. We talked about the meaning of the song, how I felt when I sang it, etc. During the shoot, there were times I got very nervous. This was my first video. Jason would pull me aside and make me focus on the heart and soul of the song, not how I looked or moved. I want my music to be real and effective. He made sure I stuck to that.

Stoli: How do you keep your vocals and your whole image looking & sounding right everyday?

JS: Working out and being healthy is the worst. I honestly hate it and I don’t trust people who actually like kale or protein shakes. However, to maintain my energy on stage and chase my three year old off stage, I have to spend some time in the gym. For my vocals, my only routine includes lots of water, warming up with Etta James, and sipping a bit of bourbon after a show. I make a mean hot toddy. It’ll cure what ails ya.

Stoli: I love your song “Burn Like Whiskey.” I am a huge bourbon guy, what is your favorite brand and how do you drink your whiskey?

JS: You are my people! I have different favorites for different occasions. My current favorite bourbons are Jefferson’s Very Small Batch and Benchmark. My go to whiskey is Jack Daniels. I’m a “bourbon, neat” kind of girl but I like my Jack on ice.

Stoli: What I love about country music is how I can relate. When you are writing lyrics where do you look for inspiration & content?

JS: I look for inspiration in the people and places that constantly change and better me as a person. I write music to them and about them. My daughter is 3. Someday, I want to make sure that she knows my heart. The good and the bad.

Stoli: When you see that we have Trump vs Clinton for the POTUS does that give you hope for the future and what societal issue is most important to you?

JS: I will always have hope in our future. I have to. We all do. The issue that is most important to me is that our political standings continue to tear relationships apart. As a songwriter, I feel it is my purpose to relate to and connect with people, not alienate them.

Stoli: If I were to come visit you in OH where would you bring me for live music & cold beer?

JS: My favorite venue to see live bands is a place in Columbus called The Bluestone. It has a solid Opry vibe. They always have incredible artists.

Stoli: How do you use social media to retain & attract fans and what site/app is most effective for you?

JS: I use social media to give people a glimpse into our culture as a band. Instagram is my favorite because we can post live video and fun pictures of rehearsals and behind-the-scenes shenanigans.

Stoli: What is coming up for Jamie Suttle and where you @ online?

JS: We are currently in the studio, recording our next full length album! I am so excited to be working with our producer, Scott Wilson. Stay tuned to our social media for a closer look at what’s coming up!

New Peated Single Malt Showcases The Balvenie In Entirely Different Way


The Balvenie, the most handcrafted single malt Scotch whisky, reimagines a classic Speyside style whisky with the release of an exceptional peated expression – The Balvenie Peat Week Aged 14 Years (2002 Vintage), available initially in a select number of markets.

The Balvenie Peat Week is the product of trials undertaken by The Balvenie’s Malt Master David Stewart MBE and Ian Millar, former distillery manager and current Prestige Whiskies Specialist at William Grant & Sons.

At a time when very few Speyside distilleries were using peat in production, The Balvenie distilled a batch of heavily peated malt, which was laid down to mature at the distillery in Dufftown, Scotland under the watchful eye of the industry’s longest-serving Malt Master. Since this pioneering moment, the distillery has dedicated one week each year, named Peat Week, to using only peated barley in its production, in order to craft a different style of The Balvenie liquid with enhanced smoky notes.

The result of the initial experiment is a classic honeyed whisky enriched with a delicate, sweet and lingering peat smoke that unlocks flavours unexpected from a Speyside distillery and showcases The Balvenie’s truly innovative and forward-thinking nature.

The Balvenie Peat Week (2002 Vintage), released in September 2017, is a single vintage bottling, limited and rare by nature. This non-chill filtered expression, bottled at 48.3% ABV, will launch exclusively to the USA, UK, Denmark and Sweden in September. The liquid was matured solely in American Oak casks, giving the final spirit a velvety and round taste with the peat smoke balancing oaky vanilla and honey.

Commenting on the release, David Stewart MBE says: “Being able to experiment with different elements of whisky making and stock management is one of the most exciting and important parts of my job. The new Peated Week bottling is a result of our continued efforts to innovate and trial flavours not typically associated with The Balvenie. The expression is testament to the freedom we enjoy as a family company, and shows The Balvenie in an unexpected way, yet still remaining true to the distillery style our drinkers enjoy.”

The new release pays special homage to a time when peated whiskies were commonly produced by distilleries across Speyside, including The Balvenie, who utilised locally sourced peat throughout the 1930s, 40s and 50s to dry barley processed at the distillery’s traditional malt floor, which is still in use today.

Ian Millar, says: “When we first started the experiments it was an incredibly exciting time as very few Speyside distilleries were using peated malt in production. Along with cask type, there’s nothing quite like peat to change the flavour profile of a whisky, so it was great to have the chance to undertake these experiments and lay the foundations for future peated malts.”

Alwynne Gwilt, The Balvenie UK Brand Ambassador added: “For anyone who thinks that Scotch is a staid category, this new release from The Balvenie will make them reconsider. Behind the scenes at whisky distilleries like ours, experiments are always going on and almost 15 years ago, we started exploring what it would be like to peat the malt that goes into our gorgeous honeyed liquid for one week each year. The result is something wonderful and will give The Balvenie lovers a chance to see this delicious whisky in a different light.”

The release follows the June release of The Balvenie Peated Triple Cask Aged 14 Years, exclusive to travel retail. Both bottlings will be permanent additions to The Balvenie’s existing range.

The Balvenie Peat Week will retail for £60 RRP and is available from September.


The Alchemist Review

There’s been a lot of talk lately in the Manchester area, and one place that keeps getting a mention is a bar that ‘is proud to stay true to the principles of bartending’. They name themselves The Alchemist, and their situated in the busy Spinningfields area of Manchester.

They were in the running for the title of ‘Best Bar’ in last month’s Manchester Food & Drink Festival awards, it utilises a corner section of one of the buildings, where you enter to be greeted by a range of friendly staff (a touch which I feel needs to be standard in all restaurants and bars). I made my way to the bar and was handed both a food and drinks menu to scour through, although my attention was diverted to their rather impressive back-bar of spirits and wines! I like my passion fruit in drinks so I plumped for a Passion Fruit Meringue Martini (£5.95), which boasted a mix of Russian Standard vodka, passion fruit liqueur, passion fruit syrup, lemon mix and culminating in flambéed meringue foam. The finish product looked very impressive, with their policy of ‘staying true to the principles of professional bartending’ shining through in their creating of the meringue. The drink itself was rather light and well balanced, with a hint of sweetness on the palate lingering on the after-taste (great for my sweet-tooth!).

Passion Fruit Meringue Martini

While I was enjoying the Martini in the comfort of their old fashioned Union Jack leather sofas, my Chicken Tandoori Wrap (£6.75) arrived with a good portion of crispy fries to go with. The dish looked ample to someone who was after a bite to eat instead of a full lunch, and with a pot of sour cream sauce to compliment, I can safely say it went down a storm! The chicken wasn’t too overpowering in its flavour, and there was a good wrapping of salad to boost your 5-a-day. Too often I’ve eaten wraps where the chicken has cooked the salad that comes with it, but this seemed to be spot on. It’s as if the chefs have the same policy as the bartenders – attention to detail.

Whilst enjoying a Diplomatico Rum Reserva Exclusiva over ice, I took in the surroundings that The Alchemist has to offer. There’s no shortage of places to sit, with a long perch table along the window as well as comfy leather bar stools and scattered tall tables close by. The restaurant itself is situated at the end of the bar (although you are more than welcome to eat at any of the bar tables) with simple traditional dark wooden square tables leading around the side. Their use of lighting is a noticeable feature too, with snow lights falling from each large windowpane, which at night must look the part from both inside and out. The bar has small lanterns hanging from the ceiling in a range of different lengths and theirs a sign of The Alchemist on the wall that surprisingly doesn’t look out of place.

The bar itself is also a sight for any professional bartender to get a little bit giddy over! A spirit collection that includes Chase vodka, Elements 8 rum, Martin Millers gin, a range of Patron tequila and my personal favourite of Diplomatico Rum Reserva Exclusiva are all below small alcoves of the wine selection that stretches the length of the bar. Highlights of the list include Johnson Estate Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc (£25.95 or £6.20 / £8.85 for a 175ml / 250ml) for the whites, a Castillo de Clavijo Rioja Reserva (£21.95 or £7.35 / £5.25 for a 175ml / 250ml) in the red section and for the rosé drinkers a ‘classy and seductive’ Dinastia Vivanco Rioja Rosardo (£23.95 or £8.15 / £5.70 for a 175ml / 250ml). Their range of wines start at the £13 bracket and rising to £42 for those special night outs. Champagne and Prosecco are also available with brands such as Veuve Cliquot Yellow Label (£65), Prosecco Doc Bel Star (£23.95) and Dom Perignon 2002 (£135) chilled for you to enjoy. Cocktails are also a main attraction here, with the menu divided into 6 main categories. Depending on the style of drink your after, there’s no shortage of options and ideas. The list includes ‘Artisan’ (hand-crafted) cocktails from The Alchemist’s very own bartenders, molecular techniques involving smoke, foam and fruit dust and a rather interesting concept that includes the use of flavoured caviar. One that caught my eye was the Maple Manhattan. Woodford Reserve is stirred into Antica Formula (red vermouth), aromatic bitters and grapefruit zest. It’s then topped with lemon and maple syrup foam! Non-alcoholic cocktails are also available with a good selection of teas and coffees to finish your visit off.

This is a superb place to visit, whether its for a drink and catch-up with friends, meeting with clients or enjoying a 3 course meal from their menu (the fillet steak fajita sounds like a winner!)

The Liquorists Vodka Trail Review

Last night was another installment into The Liquorists busy calendar, the vodka trail. Following the same concept of their Nominees & Spirited Ventures trails last month, we were to be enjoying 5 different vodka’s, 5 different vodka cocktails in 5 different bars accompanied by 5 different light bite appetizers. Sound daunting? Challenge accepted!

Finlandia Caiproska at Blackdog Ballroom

Starting the night in the Blackdog Ballroom in Manchester’s Northern Quarter, we gathered in the bar’s Ballroom, a quietly tucked away private member’s bar which is perfect for events like this. Mr Tom Sneesby would be our host for the evening as he explained a brief history on vodka, what The Liquorists are all about and why we had a shot of Finlandia in front of us. Finlandia is a perfect example of how a spirit can get better when mixed properly. Although nice on its own, the Finlandia Caiproska that came after brought this Finnish vodka more alive. A small bite to eat followed in the form of breaded chicken strips and chips and then we were hopping into a taxi to our next venue, 24 Bar & Grill.
Cariel Vodka was the choice of vodka at this newly re-branded bar (formerly Obsidian), and one of my personal favourites in the cocktail world, the Pornstar Martini, was made to perfection using Cariel’s vanilla flavour. Nestled at the end of the bar in their boothed seating, we enjoyed small pineapple and coriander salsa pastries to accompany the cocktail, as well as a shot of Cariel vodka to finish the visit off.

Pornstar Matini with Cariel Vanilla vodka at 24 Bar and Grill

Epernay was the next port of call, with the stunning champagne venue offering us Belevedere vodka to sip while French 76 cocktails were being hand crafted for our pleasure. Tom gave us a little history lesson on Belvedere, and mentioned that the building on the front of every bottle is the Polish presidential palace Belweder, with the vodka being named after it. From Poland to Sweden, Absolut vodka was next to showcase themselves at Hula, with a tiki cocktail being elaborately concocted while we munched on what I can only describe as a volcano of sweets – literally. Sherbert straws were on hand in our tiki drinks, while we drank amid a beach bar with hammocks and fire (no joke with the fire part!).
Our last bar for the night was in Manchester’s mecca when it comes to cocktails in the Northern Quarter – Socio Rehab. The French vodka Grey Goose was sipped, while Grey Goose le Fizz cocktails were brought over to us amid vegetable and meat toasties to warm the cockles of the rainy weather outside.

Grey Goose le Fizz at Socio Rehab

A great night was had, with a round of applause given to Tom by all in attendance. And it truly was. My friend came with me last night as the trail was a great idea for an early Christmas present, and he’s now raring to go back to all 5 bars again, with Hula and Epernay his highlights. As for me, all 5 bars are favourites of mine for various reasons, but the Pornstar Martini with Cariel Vanilla vodka at 24 Bar & Grill would be the recommendation of the night, but this is coming from a guy who loves vanilla!

They’ll be more trails coming up in the near future, so keep an eye on The Liquorist’s website and Facebook page for more information
