In this episode of Bourbon With Friends. The guys sit down with Zach Johnston. Zach is the Drinks Editor for UPROXX. We met Zach when he ranked us as one of the top 18 whiskey podcasts to listed to in 2022. Here is more about Zach Below.
Zach Johnston, Drinks Editor UPROXX
Before getting into a writing career online, Zach spent years working around the globe as both a chef and a high-end bartender. Highlights include living with chefs in Thailand, cutting his teeth as a pizzaiolo in a Neapolitan pizzeria in Washington, DC, popping up with Indigenous American food tasting menus in Berlin, and opening oysters from the Pacific to the streets of Europe. He's also worked in organic wine bars in Prague, tended bar on Rhodes, and refined his cocktail skills at award-winning and iconic bars in Berlin. Zach parlayed those skills into writing for UPROXX where his burger recipes get hundreds of thousands of views and his whiskey tasting notes are some of the most read in the industry. Oh, and he still knows how to make a mean cocktail.
