Stephanie Ridgeway is the Brand Ambassador for Highland Park, a whiskey distillery located on the Orkney Islands off the northern coast of Scotland. She tells us about how unique this distillery is because of it’s unique location so far north on the globe, and the effects that has on whiskey production. Damon and Stephanie talk about all the many ways to drink whiskey, and Stephanie insists that there is no wrong way to do it. This program has been sponsored by The International Culinary Center.
