Welcome to Diageo's Recent Eats
Over the past five years, Sku's Recent Eats has prided itself on its fierce independence. We have never held back on a whiskey we didn't like, and we have never tried to please the industry or its promoters. However, while we like independence, we like money more.
When Diageo made an initial offer to purchase this blog for $15, I told them that no amount of money was worth our independence. However, when Diageo raised their price to the low three figures, the most ever paid for a whiskey blog, I decided that some amounts of money were worth our independence.
I want to assure all of our readers, that regardless of the change in ownership, I am still at the helm here, and we will retain our fierce, independent spirit. After all, Diageo would not have made a substantial investment in this blog if they didn't admire our fierce, independent spirit.
Please join us next week for the following stories:
Monday: Is Bulleit the new Pappy Van Winkle?
Tuesday: Roseisle - Why it's the best thing that every happened to whiskey.
Wednesday: Which is the best distillery on Islay, Lagavulin or Caol Ila?
Thursday: Blind Tasting - Bailey's Caramel vs. Bailey's Mint
We welcome you to join us into this exciting era. Now if you'll excuse me, I have $150 I need to go spend.
