The Whiskey Authority (TWA) Mission
Operated independently by New York-based Spirit Journal, Inc. and supported by brand members, THE WHISKEY AUTHORITY provides unbiased, credible, and cutting-edge information about all whiskey categories directed to beverage trade audiences. This educational initiative is led by award-winning author, journalist, and educator F. Paul Pacult. As a Life Member of The Bourbon Hall of Fame (Bardstown, Kentucky) and a Master of the Quaich (The Keepers of the Quaich, Edinburgh, Scotland), Paul is the ideal expert to lead audiences through the labrynthine, frequently confounding world of whiskey. THE WHISKEY AUTHORITY’s dynamic, informative, and entertaining seminars include blind tastings of TWA member brands. Through entertaining seminars bolstered by three decades of whiskey-tasting experience, Paul clears the clouds of confusion about whiskey and illustrates with clarity and humor why whiskey deserves its status as one of the world’s most beloved distilled adult beverages.
