A Day In The Life of PB&W - Erin

Not many things in life are better than peanut butter, and whiskey. Yes we're a little biased, but ever wonder what life is like for our team when PB&W Peanut Butter Whiskey isn't consuming our lives (or we're consuming it)? Here's a behind the scenes look at the Peeps of PB&W.

Thursday - May, 14, 2020

Ft. Erin, Old Elk Distillery Marketing Manager


Featured Recipe:

Peanut Butter Whiskey Maple Syrup

3/4 cup White Sugar

3/4 cup Brown Sugar

1/2 teaspoon Vanilla

2 tablespoons PB&W Peanut Butter Whiskey

2 tablespoons Maple Flavoring

Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Simmer for 20 minutes until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally. Serve immediately or store in a glass jar for future use (like I did).


Early AM

  • 6:15 am: first alarm goes off

  • 6:20 am: second alarm goes off

  • 6:30 am: third alarm goes off, finally decides to acknowledge this one

  • 6:31 am: invites pup, Wilson, to come snuggle before it’s actually time to get up (he likes to be the little spoon)

  • 6:45 am: okay, actually up, first stop: coffee *while coffee’s brewing: makes a round to examine plants, inspecting new growth and watering. Makes a mental note to show fiancee new growth on the ZZ plant (which he couldn’t care less about).

  • 7:15 am: gets ready and grabs Wilson’s collar to go on a w-a-l-k, we all know you can’t say that word with pups until you’re completely ready. *Wilson freaks out*

  • 7:45 am: we’re back. starts making a real breakfast because it’s almost Friday, pulls out peanut butter whiskey maple syrup for pancakes that’s been marinating overnight *see recipe above

  • 7:50 am: finally exploring what this whole tiny pancake craze is all about which is totally worth the hype by the way. High effort, high reward. Ended up with small, medium and large pancakes...

The Work Day

  • 8:15 am: another cup of coffee for a first look at emails

  • 8:20 am: morning video chat check-in with co-worker, Alisa who lives in New York (check out her day here)

  • 8:45 am: crank on emails and prioritize day

  • 9:00 am: receive a video call from fiancee (who’s in the next room) asking if curry sounds good for dinner…

  • 9:01 am: wonders why he's thinking about curry at such an early hour of the day

  • 10:00 am: team meeting to chat about what’s hot on the docket for the day

  • 11:00 am: another meeting - this time to chat more about PB&W web, SEO and which pages are most visited on web

  • 12:00 pm: has a mental conversation: “am I hungry for lunch? I had a big breakfast. Come on, Erin, you’re not hungry.” Drinks tea instead. *contemplates adding a splash of pbw syrup to it*

  • 12:05 pm: caves and has lunch

  • 12:06 pm: fiancee brings up curry again

  • 12:30 pm: checks out the web analytics to see which PB&W web pages are visited most *it’s the cocktail page - duh* check it out.

  • 3:00 pm: calls Colorado-based co-worker, Tianni, to discuss social giveaway and strategy (check out her day here)

  • 3:03 pm: pup, Wilson, trots in for some attention and hoping for another w-a-l-k. Maybe tonight, bud.

  • 3:30 pm: places order for PB&W’s new OtterBox tumblers - YAY!

  • 4:00 pm: fiancee asks again what they should have for dinner - we've already determined, we're having curry.
