ABOUT FRED MINNICK

Upon returning home from the Iraq War in 2005, Fred Minnick has lived one of the most extraordinary lives, becoming the world’s leading whiskey critic and an iconic storyteller who practices the lost art of no bullshit interviewing with flares of dry wit and sardonic humor. Billionaires, politicians, celebrities and regular folk fly into Louisville, KY., Fred’s home, just to have drinks with the man who is considered the “Face of Bourbon.” Drinking with Fred, even on streaming media, is an experience you never forget.

Minnick has assessed contestant drinks on Bravo's "Top Chef," and appeared on Discovery's "Moonshiners," CNBC, CBS This Morning, NPR and more. He is the host of PodcastOne’s Hermes Creative Awards Platinum winning podcast The Fred Minnick Show, as well as the Bourbon Pursuit Podcast and DASH Radio's "Minnick Minute.” Minnick is also the author of Wall Street Journal best-seller Bourbon Curious, ForeWord INDIES' Gold Medal winner Whiskey Women, which was options by Paramour Films, and Spirited Awards' World's Best Spirits Book winner Bourbon.
