Glad you enjoy the new episode of The Proper Pour with Charlotte Voisey!
The location we used for the series this season and last is Rob Roy here in Seattle. It is owned by the venerable Anu Apte and is one of America’s top bars according to David Wondrich. You should definitely check it out next time you are in the area!

In regard to videos, we are shooting new episodes of all of our shows this month. Look for new seasons and episodes in May!

Thank you for watching!

I know that Francesco is traveling right now, so I will try to answer your question.
The cherries right off the tree are a variety of sour cherry. They are then taken through a process that sweetens them and then they are packed in a delicious cherry syrup. You can find out more here:
You should be able to find Luxardo Maraschino Cherries in any gourmet food shop or stores like While Foods. Other Luxardo products can be found across the country depending on the state.
The brandy Fracncesco uses is Lepanto:

Alex, My personal opinion is that the more properly made Old Fashioneds (and other classics) we can promote on Small Screen, the better!
Here in Seattle, we suffer from the overly muddled orange slices, cherry and ice in a mixing glass syndrome that ruins what should be a beautiful drink.
As far as home bars go, I know there are a great many who have cool bars in their homes. Profiling folks and their bars is a great idea for a series! For many at home though, like myself, my bar is, well, my kitchen counter.
Thanks for watching!

Suburban Cocktail 28 Oct 2011

This discussion makes me wonder if there is a direct correlation between brown spirits being mixed with soda and clear spirits (like gin in a gin and tonic) or liqueurs or amaraos, etc. (like in an Americano) being mixed with soda and the bad/good effects therein.
Now, surely there are those who enjoy a whiskey and soda. I am not one of them. I think it does not enhance the taste of a whiskey.
What would a carbonated Suburban be like I wonder?

Simple syrup is a sugar and water mixture (usually 1:1 or 2:1) that is used to sweeten cocktails.

Here is a great example of how to make rich simple syrup by our host Jamie Boudreau on his show Raising the Bar:
