A scotch whisky distiller, when asked recently if he made any blends, was gloriously sniffy and dismissive of blended whisky. It would have been interesting to see and hear what he would have made of the Johnnie Walker Directors Blends, which I got to taste last Thursday (November 28) in London.
According to USA Today, White House spokesman Jay Carney told Iowans about the facility during the president’s three-day election campaign tour of the state.
"There is a home brew, if you will, at the White House," Carney is reported to have said.
White House Honey Ale is said to be available in light and dark varieties, with the honey apparently taken from Michelle Obama’s garden beehive.
"I think I've only tried the light, and it's quite refreshing," Carney is reported to have told US journalists.
According to sources, the beer is brewed by the White House kitchen staff using equipment bought by the Obamas.
