I nominate Henry Earl.

I hope they're are ready for me to show up in a tube top that says "Cap'n Chuggz" on it and yell WOOOOOOOOOO until I drunkenly pass out in the mash pit?

Because that would be metal as hell.  Wait there ARE mash pits aren't there? Cause Admiral Chuggz (promoted already!) can't be bothered with the details, it cuts into his DRANKIN TIZIME!  WOOOOOOOOOOOOO!  This stuff mixes well with my RockkStarr energy drink, really makes the guarine and corn syrup armomas POP!  WOOOOOOOOOO!

The ambassador is passed out in the restroom again, sir.

I doubt it.

I nominate myself.... having over 30 empty whiskey bottles under my desk at home as qualification. :P

My bad. I associate "Hudson" with an old brand of car, and Harley Earl was an old-time car designer.

/Maybe I need a drink.

Not a bad whiskey, all things considered, though it is priced too high.

Step 1: Lower Price
Step 2: Sell more bottles
Step 3: Profit?

You're welcome.

Haven't tried it because of the high price.  I will spend a reasonable amount (i.e. $60) on a 750ml bottle of something new a couple of times per year, some day it may very well e Hudson Whiskey.
In the mean time I've found quality in the $20-25 range; Buffalo Trace, Two Stars, Winchester.

I would not be a good candidate for the job, I don't like the general public enough to force a smile for more than 30 seconds.

Wouldn't that make you a Hudson Hawk?

Bernheim Original is good, especially with a splash of water.  And at $22.95 for a 750ml, it's pretty much unbeatable.  Of course, if I want whiskey, I usually go for the small 375ml bottle of Blanton's for the same price.

I bet the job isn't as great as it sounds. In fact, I'll bet it's a lot of going to parties at local hotspots, but instead of getting drunk and taking advantage of women you get to drink caramel water and pitch Hudson Whiskey to douchebags. All farking night, even after the last drunk woman has left with someone infinitely more fun than you.
There's probably even a clause that says you can't drink on your own time, lest someone see you in your natural state, pale and unshaven, reeking of vomit and dried beer, and mistakenly assume you were drinking Hudson's. It sounds dreadful, when you consider it.

Or a clause saying you can't drink any other brand (or whiskey) in public.  Scotch tasting?  Not for you!

For relaxing times, make it Hudson time.

I totally keep reading that as Whitney Houston needs a brand manager.

I don't think I've seen Bernheim in Total Wine, I'll keep my eyes open.
I haven't seen Blanton's in that size.  Love the stuff, it was my last "treat" purchase.

It has potential, but it's not great.  And yes, I also think they are charging too much.

I like that there's somewhere local to me trying to make this happen though, and visiting distilleries is always fun.

So I guess my tagline would be:

"Meh, it's close"

This is just 10 minutes from my place of residence. Been there on the tour, a while back, and I go pick up a bottle every so often.

I'll be perfectly honest - it's a bit rough. It's a sweet idea, but the wiskey itself is not my favorite. But it represents something awesome.

Oh, and the meanest thing they do: bourbon barrel-aged maple syrup. They age real local maple syrup in the used bourbon barrels. You will make love to your pancakes.

Yes... and it's why I prefer to stay in the brewery and hang out at the pub talking to customers after work then to go out into the field and make appearances.

you can drink of course, but getting just as drunk as your subjects isn't good, you need to keep in character and on topic and have the wits about you to do so.

When you are an alcohol professional, you are expected to be as much, and not a professional alcoholic.

you are usually the most sober person in the room while trying to maintain the persona of the cool and level headed, sophisticated, and charming modern Drunkard.

Being a BOD and working a beer tent at a festival is pretty fun though.. but working a prime time bar crowd is trifling at best and takes a certain personality type

How's about a 6'5", middle-aged, semi-alchy ?  I could try to grow a scraggly gray beard like the Dos Equis guy and become a meme.

The future Mrs Fawkes and I did a B&B and wine tour of the Hudson Valley, including Tulithtown Spirits distillery.  It was a really nice tour and a great tasting. While not out favorite (the gf loves rye, I am more single malt) we had a great time and have been loyal customers ever since.  Hudson may be a bit in the pricey end, but for us it's local, has a nice taste and a story behind it (for us, anyway). YMMV

Get rid of the evidence, son. People might think you're a drunk.

Not only that, but you're essentially in charge of making sure that all your events go off flawlessly, by yourself, on your own time, on your own dime. Sure, the contract that your company wrote up with this venue might have said XYZ, but come party day if XYZ isn't in place it's entirely up to you to make sure that party goes down smoothly, and you hope to God that the lawyers figure it out later and you get reimbursed for the $1000 you had to spend to bring everything together at the last minute.

A friend of mine has an uncle who is a brand ambassador for a well known whiskey. A few St. Patrick's days ago they were promoting a specific drink made with their product and ginger ale. They had set up an exclusivity agreement with some venue, to promote this specific drink, but come party day someone had dropped the ball and the venue had no ginger ale. The promoter spent his whole day driving to every store within distance and bought hundreds of bottles of the stuff to make thousands of this drink. He did eventually get reimbursed for the soda, but all of the unpaid lackey time and gas money spent driving all over creation were just viewed as a cost of the job.

I think it is excellent for the price - not as smoky/peaty as I normally go for, but a very smooth finish.  Pleasantly surprised.
