More about Chris Uhde
"Until 2007, Uhde’s whiskey experience was limited to shots of the cheap stuff washed down with Pabst Blue Ribbon in his hometown of Athens, Georgia. He spent his late twenties playing in local rock groups and scraping by as a plumber while he finished college on the 12-year plan. “But I wanted to see the world,” he says, “and I was tired of being broke all the time.”
He drove to L.A. to crash on a friend’s couch. The friend worked at a liquor store, and on the day Uhde met him there, a sales rep from the boutique whiskey distributor JVS Imports arrived with samples. “It was an independent single-cask Mannochmore and, I think, a single-cask Laphroaig,” Uhde recalls. “They were so different and amazing. I asked so many questions that at the end they asked me, ‘Have you ever thought about doing this?’ "
The above quote is from LA Magazine online. Today, Chris has 12 years in the Spirits industry. In 2016, Chris was named Los Angeles’s first voice of whisky by Los Angeles Magazine. Chris travels throughout the United States preaching the gospel of fine whisky.
Los Angeles Magazine wrote an article about Chris where you can read more from the above quote entitled "Meet Chris Uhde, the First Name in L.A. Whiskey"
