My Favorite Mistake — Letting 100 Barrels of Bourbon Age Too Long: Donnis Todd – Just the Mistake

This is “just the mistake” — a new experiment, the third time.

Today we’ll hear the “favorite mistake” story shared, in episode #11, by Donnis Todd, the master distiller at Garrison Brothers distillery in Texas, makers of award-winning bourbons.

In the full episode, you’ll hear more of Donnis’s thoughts on creating a culture of “owning up to mistakes.” That starts with him and it actually starts with founder Dan Garrison. In the episode, you also hear Dan’s favorite mistake story and his thoughts on how he reacted to Donnis’s favorite mistake story that you’ll hear.

Donnis and Dan are both featured in my upcoming book, The Mistakes that Make Us – learn more and be notified about updates at
