My Tales of Whisky: Watch Nick Offerman try to Open a Distillery

Did you know that Nick Offerman (Parks and Rec) is also a YouTube star?

My Tales of Whisky Diageo, the makers of some of Scotland’s finest single malt whiskies including Lagavulin® and Oban®,  partnered up with Offerman to produce original content for their YouTube channel.

“The storylines range from an epic transcontinental journey in which Offerman proves his love and knowledge of scotch, to a mockumentary on how Oban scotch gets made by the most gorgeous people on earth. There’s even a helpful rhyme on responsible drinking, which reminds us… please drink responsibly,” says the channel’s bio.

In this episode, “Nick Offerman’s Distillery,” Offerman decides he’s going to open his own Distillery and learns the hard way that there are many obstacles to opening one up.

“As a man who cares deeply for others, I’ve always enjoyed giving people whisky, and as a human with great taste, I’ve always enjoyed drinking it. In my valiant effort to do both, I have decided to open my own whisky distillery on the Isle of Skye in Scotland.”

Watch his journey below.
