Ep 46 The Devil's River Destructive Debacle Discussion Delicately Dealt with Despite Delay, Decisively!

A couple months ago, an ongoing issue that kept rearing its head in a local group that had a State wide impact, led to a fantastic phone call with the head of Devil's River Whiskey, Mike Cameron.

Devil's River Bourbon, a brand who prides itself on being from Texas, was at the center of a controversy surrounding their government approved labels and what was actually on the bottle.

Questions arose around whether or not the brand was manipulating the consumer and even the host of this very show was not happy with them.

I spoke with Mike Cameron awhile back and he was more than happy to sit down and answer all of our questions and today, we hit it head on.
I think you'll be surprised…
