To celebrate the start of Billions season five filming, Damian hosted a party at his temporary New York residence for all his co-stars on Saturday, November 16, 2019. We waited to post this news in hopes of photos surfacing throughout the evening into the next day, but nothing so far. We sure hope there were many Dollar Bill shenanigans and Wags words of wisdom. Co-star Stephen Kunken, a self-proclaimed coffee sommelier who plays Compliance Officer Ari Spyros on Billions, did report that spirits were high from all the Michter’s spirits provided. Oh to be a fly on the wall!

Damian danced his way onto The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Monday, March 11, 2019 in New York, bringing gifts of Michter’s Whiskey, so cheers to that! Watch his unforgettable entrance here:
When Stephen brings out cocktail glasses and an ice bucket from a secret bar beneath his desk and begins to pour the whiskey, Damian is amazed, exclaiming,
“This is fantastic, You can go home, it’s fine. We’re just going to sit and drink. This is amazing. Look at this! I’m very excited.”
Then they clink glasses as Damian “cheers” to Stephen in Welsh.

A Barrel of Fun

Every Billions fan knows Michter’s Whiskey is a staple on the show. So why not step it up and visit the place that makes your cup runneth over? It started last Saturday morning, February 23, 2019 when David Costabile (Wags), Kelly AuCoin (Dollar Bill Stearn), and Stephen Kunken (Ari Spyros) – all who play characters loyal to #TeamAxe on Showtime’s Billions – decided to take a trip to Michter’s Whiskey Distillery. David Costabile writes,
“You get on a plane and see if you can buy @michterswhiskey. Did we accomplish that?”
It seems they did just that! They toured the distillery, learned about the aging process, and sampled the product. I wonder if they brought back some whiskey for Bobby Axelrod?
According to their website, Michter’s Fort Nelson Distillery is in downtown Louisville. Located in the historic Fort Nelson building on Main Street, this distillery is home to a legendary historic distillation system. Here you will learn about all of the extra steps Michter’s takes throughout the whiskey production process to pursue our goal of producing the greatest American whiskey, from barreling at a lower entry proof, to toasting our barrels before charring and heat cycling our warehouses. Following the tour, you will taste five different Michter’s expressions before heading up to the bar, where your visit will conclude with a cocktail demonstration and a small cocktail sample.
