SOW EP 18 - Tracie Franklin of the Nearest & Jack Advancement Initiative

SOW EP 18 - Tracie Franklin of the Nearest & Jack Advancement Initiative

This week's guest on Spirits of Whisk(e)y is Tracie Franklin. The former US National Ambassador for Glenfiddich single malt Scotch whisky is many things—professional thespian, master bartender, spirits expert, whiskey evangelist—but today she joins us in her newest capacity. Listen and learn how Tracie went from singing Winnie the Pooh in dozens of languages on stages all over the world to being named the very first Head Distiller Apprentice supported by the Nearest & Jack Advancement Initiative, a partnership between Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey and the Jack Daniel Distillery designed to promote diversity and further advance African-American leadership in the American whiskey industry. Plus hear how Chef Louise Leonard incorporates Tracie's very own Jamaican jerk cocktail tincture into her cooking.
