Of Monsters and Men and Jake Bugg Rock the World's Only Whiskey and Music Festival in Bushmills Distillery

image
BUSHMILLS, Ireland, June 21, 2013 /jm/ --

Bushmills Live: International indie artists take to the stage at age-old distillery

Global stars including Of Monsters and Men and Jake Bugg, together with friends Foy Vance, Willy Mason and Iain Archer, gave electrifying performances last night at Bushmills Live - the festival of handcrafted whiskey and music which took place among the barrels at the Old Bushmills Distillery

The intimate two-day festival on Ireland's north coast was attended by just 500 music and whiskey fans from around the world, including attendees from countries spanning from the USA to Bulgaria and Portugal to Russia.

Artists more used to playing to crowds of hundreds of thousands, such as Of Monsters and Men and Jake Bugg, performed a series of small gigs in centuries-old buildings at the Old Bushmills Distillery, where the art of whiskey-making has been practiced for generations.

Of Monsters and Men's Ragnar ├×├│rhallsson said: "Last night was unlike any other gig we've played before. We have performed in many venues in cities all around the world, but this one, in a whiskey distillery, was something very special. The atmosphere was great and we loved it. We would be honoured to play here again."

Jake Bugg added: "I've played many gigs but never thought I'd be playing in a whiskey distillery and it was pretty cool. Good to see my mate Iain Archer - happy birthday."

These global superstars were joined by emerging indie artists Bear's Den and Sons and Lovers, together with David C Clements and VerseChorusVerse, recipients of the inaugural Bushmills Live Legacy Fund. This is a trust of £20,000 set up by Bushmills™ Irish Whiskey and Third Bar, an artist development company run by last year's headliner, Snow Patrol's lead singer, Gary Lightbody and Davy Matchett, curators of the fund.

Master Distiller at the Old Bushmills Distillery, Colum Egan, said: "This was an incredible night for Bushmills Irish Whiskey and for music lovers. Last night, we welcomed both globally-established artists and emerging talent to our home on Ireland's north coast. Their music, like our whiskey, represents the very best in hand craftsmanship. He added: "It was fantastic to see so many friends come to the distillery, enjoy the music and of course share a glass of Bushmills."

Bushmills™ Irish Whiskey Is Toast Of World Leaders At G8 Summit In Northern Ireland

image

FERMANAGH, Northern Ireland, June 19, 2013 /jm/ -- Northern Ireland's world famous whiskey, Bushmills, was the toast of world leaders at the G8 Summit meeting at the Lough Erne Resort in Enniskillen, County Fermanagh, on 17 and 18 June.



Bottles of the award winning whiskey were presented to the heads of state, including Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin, and the key delegates travelling with them. Bushmills Irish Whiskey was chosen by the UK Government among gifts that represent the best of the Northern Ireland's produce.

The Old Bushmills Distillery on Northern Ireland's picturesque north coast exports 95% of its production, with main markets including North America, Great Britain and France.

Bushmills Master Distiller, Colum Egan selected one of the distillery's finest reserves - Bushmills 12 Year Old Single Malt Irish Whiskey – for the commemorative gift presented by UK Prime Minister David Cameron to the world leaders and delegates. 

Colum Egan said: "Bushmills may be a small village, but we are no stranger to the global stage – we've received hundreds of international awards for our whiskey. But I have to say this is one of our finest moments. As Master Distiller I'm very proud that our hand-made whiskey is being given global recognition as among the best of Northern Ireland's produce, especially coming in the same week as we are welcoming 500 international visitors to our distillery's music festival."

Bushmills Irish Whiskey also partnered with the Northern Ireland Tourist Board at the G8 summit to provide media from around the world with a series of tutored tastings of its handcrafted range including some of its seven award-winning whiskies:Bushmills, Black Bush™, Bushmills 10 Year Old Single Malt, Bushmills 16 Year Old Single Malt, Bushmills 21 Year Old Single Malt, Bushmills 1608 and Bushmills Irish Honey Spirit Drink.

Diageo PLC (DGE:London) acquired the Old Bushmills Distillery in 2005 and has invested £45m since then, trebling production. Around 5m litres of whiskey will be distilled this year. The distillery employs 106 people in all areas of production including distilling, blending, maturation and bottling, all of which take place on the one site. The distillery's visitors' centre is one of Northern Ireland's leading tourist destinations, attracting around 120,000 visitors a year.

Texas-Bound Shipment Of Popular Chicken Cock Whiskey Stolen, $10,000 Reward Offered By S.C. Distiller

image

CHARLESTON, S.C., June 13, 2013 /jm/ -- Matti Anttila, owner and president of Chicken Cock Whiskey, a brand that originally gained notoriety during the prohibition era, has offered a $10,000 reward for the return of 884 cases of the bottled spirit, stolen in a truck stop heist this past weekend.

The 18-wheel tractor-trailer, loaded with more than 10,000 bottles of Chicken Cock Whiskey, had recently left the distillery in Charleston and was headed for Glazer's, the brand's Texas-based distributor, when it was stolen from a Petro gas station and truck stop in Florence, S.C. The truck cab was later found but the trailer and contents were not. Anttila estimates that the whiskey, with a retail value of over $200,000, would be worth as much as $1.4 million if sold through restaurants or bars.

Chicken Cock Whiskey is a recently revitalized American whiskey brand that is generating a loyal following and widespread consumer demand across the Southeast, fueled by the dramatic rise in the popularity of flavored whiskeys, one of the fastest-growing categories in the spirits industry. Originally a Kentucky bourbon first produced in 1856, the Chicken Cock brand was revived by Anttila for its vintage appeal and its history as the "house whiskey" at the famed Cotton Club in Harlem during prohibition. The new Chicken Cock Whiskey is packaged in quick-chill aluminum bottles, a nod to the original brand and its reputation for being presented in non-descript tin cans in the speakeasies of the Roaring 20s.

"I guess it's fitting that a brand that rose to prominence as a bootleg bourbon during prohibition gets hijacked just as it returns to market in 2013," Anttila said. "While I appreciate the irony in this situation, we really would like our whiskey back."

In an effort to recover the stolen shipment, Anttila is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to its return in full. As for the perpetrators, Anttila said he will leave their fate in the hands of law enforcement. He requested that anyone with information regarding the tractor trailer theft please contact the Florence County sheriff's department.

Glenfiddich Announces Pioneering Partnership With Wounded Warriors Canada

image


$2 from every bottle sold in Canada of Glenfiddich 15 Year Old to benefit Canadian Forces members

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 4, 2013/jm/) -



Glenfiddich, the world's most awarded single malt Scotch is announcing their continued support for Wounded Warriors Canada by donating two dollars for every bottle of the Glenfiddich 15 Year Old Solera sold across Canada. In honour of the ongoing partnership, Glenfiddich is changing its regular packaging throughout 2013 and beyond in recognition of the donation program to help raise awareness and funds for Wounded Warriors Canada.

This extended partnership is built upon the shared commitment to family and the value of a pioneering spirit. Glenfiddich and Wounded Warriors are both pioneers in their fields. Glenfiddich remains family owned and operated for over 125 years, and pioneered the development of the Single Malt Scotch Whisky business around the world. Wounded Warriors is dedicated to helping Canadian Forces Members and their families in need through their ongoing and ground-breaking support programs.

Founded in 2006, Wounded Warriors Canada is a non-profit organization that helps Canadian Forces members - be they full time or reservists - who have been wounded or injured in their service to Canada.

Glenfiddich's fundraising efforts for Wounded Warriors Canada began in October 2012 with a record-breaking charity auction of an ultra-rare bottle of Glenfiddich 55 Year Old. Continuing with these efforts, as of January 2013, all funds raised by the two dollar bottle donation on every bottle of Glenfiddich 15 year old Solera sold across Canada will be celebrated annually with a donation presented each November.

"Wounded Warriors Canada are true pioneers in providing programs, services and solutions for our returning Canadian Forces members and their families in need," says Beth-Anne Thomas, National Brand Manager, Glenfiddich Single Malt Scotch. "As a family-owned and operated distillery, Glenfiddich is inspired by their ongoing efforts and the pioneering spirit that makes Wounded Warriors a leader in their field."

In September 2012, Glenfiddich donated all proceeds from the auction of the Glenfiddich Janet Sheed Roberts Reserve 55 Year Old to Wounded Warriors Canada. The ultra-rare Glenfiddich Scotch set the record as the most expensive bottle of whisky sold at auction in Canada, selling for a record-breaking $52,000 CAD. The Janet Sheed Roberts Reserve 55 Year Old has since earned international acclaim as one of the rarest and most expensive single malt Scotches in the world.

Captain Wayne Johnston, Founder of Wounded Warriors Canada commented, "We are honoured to further our partnership with Glenfiddich - a relationship built on the ethos of families helping families. The donation from the sale of each bottle of Glenfiddich 15 Year Old will allow us to continue to fund our innovative projects and programs that serve our Canadian Forces members in need."
