BBaF Podcast: BHAKTA Brandy with Raj Peter Bhakta


Listen to Episode 103: BHAKTA Brandy with Raj Peter Bhakta

Raj Peter Bhakta has had many lives. He’s been a contestant on The Apprentice and gotten “fired” on television by the future President of the United States in front of millions of viewers; He’s tried his hands at politics by running for a seat in the House of Representatives; And he is perhaps best known in the spirits industry as the founder of the most award-winning rye whiskey in the world: the premium Vermont-based WhistlePig. After selling the popular brand last year, Raj has now moved on to reviving another spirits category that has long been under appreciated – Armagnac brandy. 

Launched over the summer, BHAKTA Brandy is a blend of 8 Armagnac vintages 50-152 years old, making it one of the oldest spirits on the market. It is then finished in Islay Scotch casks, resulting in a unique, category defining take on the spirit. 

In this week’s Bit by a Fox Podcast, Raj and I discuss his move from whiskey to brandy, the story behind these hidden vintages, and why we all should be buying these bottles of history right now – One to stock, and one to rock.
