On the Back Bar: A Bartender Podcast for The Drinks Trade

Oct 2, 2021

In this episode of On The Back Bar Podcast, Chris talks to James Arthur Rackham of "Daddy Rack" Tennessee Straight Whisky. 

J.Arthur Rackham's lifetime spirit adventure began at an early age, when he was born above his father's liquor store on London's Portobello Road.

In 1968 at the age of 15, he was an apprentice with the Camus family in Cognac, France, where he worked in the distilleries and rackhouses with his seasoned instructors. This was the start of his 40-year career as a blender and worldwide spirit trader.

James has also been the go-to guy for big purchasers of cognac, Armagnac, and calvados, as well as sophisticated botanical gin formulations in the last ten years.
