The well-known phrase ‘once upon a time….’ may traditionally have signified the beginning of a timeless children’s fairy tale – but now Sexton and Michael Legge have got their hands on it, you can be sure of something altogether darker. Crafted especially for the restless people of the night who want to swap the mundane ‘living happily ever after’ (like that ever happens) for a more realistic, comedic take fit for the 21st century, you can be sure that things are about to get a whole lot naughtier!
The Sexton Whiskey is teaming up with BAFTA nominated and BIMA award-winning comedian Michael Legge to launch a new audio series, The Sexton’s Bedtime Stories for the Nocturnal podcast. Each episode will feature a classic children’s fairy tale that has been stirred, twisted and generally shaken up to a whole new level – so is it any surprise that they go perfectly with cocktails?
How will Goldilock’s fair during her brush with the three bears? After huffing and puffing for years, will the wolf finally get his paws on the three hipster little pigs? Well, you’ll have to download the podcast to take in all the snappy tales, and we can guarantee it will be a lot of fun finding out.
The brains behind The Sexton’s Bedtime Stories for the Nocturnal podcast,Northern Irish comedian Michael Legge said, ‘If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that things need to change and for the better! So, with this in mind, I’ll be busting the myth that stealing from bears is wrong – and that letting neighbourly wolves into your home is undoubtedly a smart move. So sit down, pour yourself a whiskey and learn how these fairy tale characters get their comeuppance!’
Comedy fans are being asked to come and enjoy the darkness over five instalments, including classic titles such as Goldilocks & The Three Bears, The Gingerbread Man, Robin Hood, Three Little Pigs and Jack & The Bean Stalk, all kicking off on Saturday 31st October.

A modern malt for the creative whiskey drinker, The Sexton is rich in hue, approachable in taste and memorable in flavour. It’s power and versatility goes against the grain – designed for a new modern whiskey drinker who looks for multi-tasking malt that’s just as delicious enjoyed in a cocktail, as it is neat or on the rocks.
The Sexton’s rich and sophisticated spirit is matched in the style-stakes by the striking, hexagonal black bottle it’s served from, which unravels its own rich story and is set to be a covetable decanter for display in some of the country’s leading cocktail bars.
