Watch Nick Offerman Try to Open a Whisky Distillery in Scotland

Watch Nick Offerman Try to Open a Whisky Distillery in Scotland

Serious question: Why did it take this long for everyone’s favorite human, Ron Swanson Nick Offerman, to try and open a whisky distillery? Ron Swanson loved whisky. Nick Offerman loves whisky. It feels wrong that it took the Parks and Recreation star this long to finally try his hand at making this barrel-aged nectar of the gods. I mean, the man owns a gosh dang woodworking shop in Los Angeles. You’d think he would’ve made himself some barrels and started aging the stuff eons ago. But alas, I guess being a comedian and working actor and woodworker and author and superhero of balancing hyper-masculine do-it-yourselfer activities and feminist tendencies does take up a lot of one’s time. (Besides, if you were the very funny husband to the iconically funny Megan Mullally, wouldn’t you just want to spend all day goofing off and laughing about hilarious y’all are?)

Well thankfully, Offerman is trying to remedy any whisky blind spots (which, ha) over on YouTube in his “My Tales of Whisky” web series. It’s like that London episode of Parks and Rec brought to life (but with less of the lovely earnest sappiness of Leslie Knope).

In it, the man that all the bacon and eggs built visits various distilleries across Scotland, and the resulting videos are exactly what you’d expect. Like this one, where Offerman decides that the Isle of Skye is the perfect place for a distillery of his very own:

Unfortunately…Nick Offerman is not as patient as his sitcom counterpart, so the dream is quickly dead. But hey: at least we got this cute video out of it, eh?
