Our Story

The first time we met we shared whiskey. Our first date was a whiskey tasting. There was whiskey at our wedding. When our best friends moved away there was a parting glass of whiskey. There was whiskey passed around when grandma died. Whiskey on anniversaries. Whiskey on memorable camping trips. Whiskey at picnics. New friendships cemented and old ones celebrated with whiskey. High times accentuated and low moments contemplated with a swirl of liquid gold.

Along life’s road we’ve selected whiskies to honor mile markers and special moments. Our friends learned this about us and soon all knew, if something special was happening, the Smiths were bringing whiskey.

Eventually we became the go to people for whiskey questions and tastings. We started reading and studying more about whiskey. And then just that fast, we were flying to Austin, TX to attend the Whiskey Marketing School.

We’ve since graduated and are now certified Whisk(e)y Sommeliers. What does that mean? It means we love whiskey. But mostly, it means we love the people, stories, and moments that make whiskey great. If you ever want to put a marker in the road with us we’ll have some whiskey waiting for you.
