When you think of Switzerland, whiskey probably isn't the first thing that comes to mind. Yet, the Appenzell Whiskey Trek is one on the most unique adventure excursions that EYB Global Ambassador Jeff Bradford has ever completed and that says a lot given that he is a retired member of US Army Special Forces.

Locher Brewery, one of the local Appenzell beer breweries, started making whisky back in 1999. In 2010, whisky expert Jim Murray named the Appenzeller Säntis Malt “Dreifaltigkeit” European Whisky of the Year.

The single malt whisky is named after Mount Säntis, the highest peak within the Alpstein mountains in Appenzell.

After successfully selling their whisky in a few mountain inns, the idea of a whisky trek was born. Barrels of whisky were carried up the mountains to the 26 inns spread throughout the Alpstein. Thanks to the different barrels used as well as the height and climate conditions of each inn, every whisky tastes different.

When you hike up to one or more of these mountain inns, you can reward yourself with a glass of this special whisky while enjoying amazing views.

Watch this video to view the spectacle of the whiskey trek for yourself!

My name is Mark McMillian and you may have heard my name thrown around a certain sports network before. Basically... after retiring from an eight year NFL career, I have been blessed with the platform to Coach, mentor, and work with athletes from across the country. I love helping these athletes navigate through the recruiting process, and enjoy mentoring younger kids as well - working in several group homes and detention centers.
I have also found a passion for BBQ, Bourbon and Barbells...

Just like Champagne and other fine wines, tequila is a drink that takes its name from its region of origin. And like fine wines, the unique characteristics of tequila can be traced back, quite literally, to its roots. The appellation, and the environment within it, the terroir, are integral to the quality of Corazón Tequila’s agave, all of which comes from appellations in Jalisco, Mexico, known as the best agave-growing region for tequila. Here, the soil is rich in iron oxide and the extreme temperatures of the warm days and cool nights create a climate where it takes longer for the agave to mature. It is the quality of the agave and its juice that creates the foundation of superiority found within our tequila.

Alcohol absolutely has calories but it is unlike any of the other macronutrients in that it has 7 calories per gram where protein and carbs have 4 and fat has 9 calories per gram. What I want to teach you is how to convert those calories into something you can track.


We would love to hear from you!
