Alec Balas

Host

Alec, co-host of The Bourbon Library and After Hours, got into whiskey as an old-fashioned drinker. After his dad really got bit by the bourbon bug, Alec’s interest only grew. After starting The Bourbon Library with Ryan, his love for whiskey and the whiskey community continues to grow as his knowledge and palette expand too. To Drink is to Live!
