After a 30-year-career in law enforcement, Victoria Eady Butler did what most people do. She retired. But just days into relaxing and investing in new hobbies, she kicked retirement to the curb. And instead, opted for the chance to learn about what she says is in her blood: whiskey blending, at Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey.

In this episode, Victoria shares:

  • Her favorite cocktail (hint: it includes Uncle Nearest whiskey)
  • How she started her career over after 30 years
  • How she connects to her great-great grandfather through her own whiskey blending
  • What it’s like being part of an all woman executive team in the spirits industry
  • Why her awards and accolades matter, but why being open to learning matters more
