The Drinkable Week: Yamazaki whisky, Miyazaki shochu in NY & Chazz Palminteri’s vodka

In this episode:

Suntory releases 5,000 bottles of Yamazaki Sherry Cask 2016 for $300 a pop (You might recall that Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible named the 2013 edition World Whisky of the Year)

• Distillers from Japan’s Miyazaki Prefecture visit New York City to whet American’s appetite for shochu.

• Actor and writer Chazz Palminteri (A Bronx Tale, The Usual Suspects), who recently launched BiVi Sicilian vodka, will head to Vegas to cut the ribbon at the 2016 Nightclub & Bar Show

About Jeff Cioletti

I’m Jeff Cioletti and The Drinkable Globe marries my two greatest passions: fine drink and travel. The search for the former usually drives the latter. I'm the author of The Drinkable Globe, Beer FAQ and The Year of Drinking Adventurously. I'm the former editor-in-chief of Beverage World magazine and a regular contributor to publications such as SevenFifty Daily, Beverage Media, Artisan Spirit, Draft Magazine, FSR, All About Beer Magazine and BevNet. I’ve been interviewed on beverage-related topics for CNN, Fox Business News, CNBC, Beer Sessions Radio, Canada's ROB TV, NPR, BBC World, BBC Radio, The Associated Press, The New York Post, Financial Times, Investors Business Daily, Advertising Age, WCBS-TV and several other media outlets. Beyond the journalism gig, I’m also a filmmaker; I wrote, produced and co-directed the feature film, “Beerituality,” a comedy set in the world of craft beer. The film is available on at and can be streamed and downloaded at
