Glenfiddich Issues Call for Canadian Artists to Enter Competition for the Coveted 2014 Glenfiddich Artists in Residence Prize

image

TORONTO, ONTARIO- Nov. 28, 2013/jm/ -

Glenfiddich is issuing a "Call to Artists" currently living and creating art in Canada to enter the internationally renowned competition for the prestigious 2014 Glenfiddich Artists in Residence Prize. The Canadian "Call to Artists" opens today, Thursday November 28, 2013 and closes midnight eastern time, Friday January 31, 2014.

The Canadian winner will be one of only eight artists worldwide to be awarded the art community's coveted prize to live and work at the Glenfiddich Distillery in Dufftown, Scotland. It's only fitting that the world's most awarded single malt Scotch whisky honours distinction. The three-month residency valued at $20,000 per artist represents the Glenfiddich commitment to the pioneering spirit of the arts and the communities it serves. While living in crofts (traditional small Scottish farm houses), artists are encouraged to find inspiration from the unique setting in the Scottish Highlands. The experience provides an opportunity unlike any other for artists to work in an international community, share in a dialogue with other artists and foster cross-disciplinary ideas.

Now in its 12th year internationally and 10th in Canada, the Glenfiddich Artists in Residence Prize attracts nearly 150 submissions across Canada from the visual arts. The prize covers the cost of travel, living expenses and materials throughout the residency. From the submissions, five jury members choose eight finalists and ultimately one winner. To apply and for more information, applicants are asked to visit www.glenfiddich.com/ca/artistsinresidence.

The distinguished jury for the selection of the Canadian Glenfiddich Artists in Residence Prize includes Dr. Sara Diamond, president of OCAD University, Gaetane Verna, director of The Power Plant, Kitty Scott, curator of modern and contemporary art at AGO, Julian Sleath, programming manager of special events, economic development & culture at the City of Toronto, and the Canadian 2008 Glenfiddich Artists in Residence Prize recipient, Dave Dyment.

Andy Fairgrieve, curator, Glenfiddich Artists in Residence Prize underscores that, "The program's ethos is about encouraging people to take inspiration from their experience living at the distillery, whether that be the pioneering heritage of Glenfiddich, the surrounding environment, or the daily life of the distillery and local community, and to be as pioneering as possible - a mission our artists live and breathe during their three-month residency."

The Glenfiddich Artists in Residence Prize has sponsored over 90 artists globally since its inception in 2002. Daniel Barrow, the 2013 Canadian Glenfiddich Artists in Residence Prize recipient - recognized for his use of obsolete technologies to present written, pictorial and cinematic narratives on the practices of drawing and collecting - has recently completed his three-month residency.

The past Canadian Glenfiddich Artists in Residence Prize winners include: Daniel Barrow (2013), Jillian McDonald (2012), Helen Cho (2011), Damian Moppett (2010), Arabella Campbell (2009), Dave Dyment (2008), Jonathon Kaiser (2007), Annie Pootoogook (2006) and Myfanwy Macleod (2005).

JOHNNIE WALKER® Serves Up Clear Statement on Responsible Drinking Through New Glass Car Film

image

SAO PAULO, November 22, 2013  --

If you need to be reminded about the fragility of human life, just watch a Formula 1 race car made entirely of JOHNNIE WALKER whisky glasses shattering into a million pieces, says Carolyn Panzer, Director of Corporate Social Responsibility for Diageo, makers of the world's No. 1 Blended Scotch Whisky.

    

The Glass Car is a new flagship film launched today for Join The Pact, a global campaign to gather one million commitments to never drink and drive. Inspired by the fragility of glass, the 90-second film imagines a race car made of 1,750 glasses. Beautiful and powerful, yet so easily shattered, the glass car symbolises the importance of always making the right choices and staying in control.

"Our partnership with Vodafone McLaren Mercedes is an amazingly powerful platform for talking about responsible drinking," says Panzer. "Ahead of this weekend's FORMULA 1 GRANDE PREMIO PETROBRAS DO BRASIL GRAND PRIX, we're releasingThe Glass Car to remind consumers that, in life as in racing, control is everything."

Join The Pact aims to gather an additional million pledges never to drink and drive by inviting consumers around the world to use the hashtag #ImNOTdriving on social media. In return, JOHNNIE WALKER is pledging to give away one million kilometers of safe rides home.

The Glass Car features two-time world drivers' champion Mika Häkkinen - a JOHNNIE WALKER Global Responsible Drinking Ambassador - who says: "Staying in control is what matters in racing. Split second decisions are the difference between finishing first and finishing last - or not finishing at all. The Glass Car is a powerful reminder of how easily our dreams can be shattered - watch it, share it and sign the pact never to drink and drive."

Set in a painstakingly created computer reproduction of the McLaren Technology Centre - accurate to just 3mm - the beautiful film features a stunning CGI model of a Vodafone McLaren Mercedes F1 car and a breathtaking crash scene at 300 frames per second that took over a week to render and produced over 100 gigabytes of data in itself. To view The Glass Car go tohttp://www.jointhepact.com/theglasscar.

Gavin Pike, Global Brand Director of JOHNNIE WALKER, says: "JOHNNIE WALKER has placed responsible drinking at the heart of its eight-year partnership with Vodafone McLaren Mercedes.  As a result of that partnership more than one million consumers around the world have already signed a pledge never to drink and drive and nine weeks ago in Singapore we launched the new campaign to gather a further one million pledges through #ImNOTdriving by giving away free rides home across the globe.

"The reaction from consumers has been hugely encouraging and so far we have already delivered over 10,000 kilometers of free rides home. The Formula 1 season is reaching its climax at a time when millions are preparing for the festive seasons in many parts of the globe - it's the right moment to use this highly impactful film to reinforce the vital message about never drinking and driving."

Pike adds: "JOHNNIE WALKER is dedicated to personal progress, it is what the brand personifies, and we believe that responsible drinking is part of that progress. This latest film is an extremely powerful addition to a global campaign that uses our partnership with Vodafone McLaren Mercedes to demonstrate our commitment to world-class standards in responsible marketing."

Glenmorangie Global Master Brand Ambassador David Blackmore Named Scotch Whisky Ambassador of the Year 2014 For Third Consecutive Year

image

NEW YORK, Nov. 22, 2013  -- Glenmorangie, Scotland's favorite single malt Scotch whisky, is proud to announce its Global Master Brand Ambassador David Blackmore has been named Icons of Whisky America, Scotch Whisky Ambassador of the Year 2014 by Whisky magazine. This marks the third year in a row Blackmore has been honored by the industry leading publication.



Blackmore's incomparable dedication and enthusiasm for the fastest growing single malt Scotch whisky in the U.S. was greatly inspired by his work as part of the whisky creation team, with Master Distiller, Dr. Bill Lumsden. Not only is he an expert on the entire Glenmorangie range, but he is also a chief authority on Ardbeg, leading education programs for both brands throughout the USA.

In the past 12 months Blackmore has travelled to over fifty U.S. cities, thirty cities across Asia and five cities in Canada. He has presented to over 55,000 people and been heard by an additional 500,000 viewers through television and radio broadcasting.

"David continues to prove time and again that his expertise in Scotch whisky, and particularly Glenmorangie, is unparalleled. Even though this is his third consecutive award, it is still just as thrilling to see someone so deserving be recognized for their relentless pursuit of excellence on behalf of our brand," says Maxime Balay, Glenmorangie U.S. Brand Director. "It is with great pride that we can call David a member of the Glenmorangie family for the past eight years, and we look forward to many more to come."

Blackmore's most recent project was an international cross-industry initiative. David, joined by Dr. Bill Lumsden, worked on the program with three of Scotland's top distillers, as well as representatives from the Scottish Government, DISCUS, SWA at Mt. Vernon, George Washington's distillery. 

The fastest growing single malt whisky in the U.S., Glenmorangie has received tremendous accolades from the International Wine and Spirits Competition, the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and the Wine Enthusiast's Wine Star Awards. Most recently, Glenmorangie's Private Edition Ealanta was named 2014 World Whisky of the Year by Jim Murray's Whisky Bible, scoring 97.5 out of 100 points, and is described as having "One of the longest finishes of any Scotch this year...and borderline perfection." In addition, over the last five years Glenmorangie has won more "Gold Best in Class" medals than any other single malt from the International Wine and Spirits Competition and was also named their 2012 Distiller of the Year.

Whiskey Lovers Rejoice: Wild Turkey® 101 Rye Makes Its Highly-Anticipated Return

image

LAWRENCEBURG, KY -Ask and you shall receive. That’s the mantra from the Wild Turkey® team, as the brand brings back its highly-coveted Wild Turkey 101 Rye. After an absence from the market for about a year due to unexpected high demand, Wild Turkey 101 Rye is making its way back into the hearts and back bars of the best whiskey accounts in the country beginning this month.

In this day and age, it’s no surprise that Wild Turkey’s loyal fans took to Facebook and Twitter to express their disappointment with 101 Rye’s vanishing act. Earlier this year, a group of 101 Rye fanatics banded together and demanded the return of their beloved Rye. Bartender Erick Castro led the charge on Facebook by creating the group “Bring Back Wild Turkey 101 Rye.”

"It was definitely a tough blow to the cocktail world when Wild Turkey 101 Rye disappeared. I always found it worked beautifully in cocktails, both stirred & shaken,” said Castro. “Because of this, I am elated to hear that it will be available again for craft bartenders looking for a quality rye that shines in drinks we serve across the bar."

Wild Turkey is eager to bring its bold 101-proof Rye back to the bartending community and ardent Rye drinkers alike. Due to very limited stock, the brand will re-introduce one liter bottles targeting on-premise accounts in 21 markets across the country with the same peppery, bold flavor that cuts through any cocktail.

What one could call a perfect storm of events led to the temporary disappearance of Wild Turkey 101 Rye. Increased demand for Rye Whiskey and growing enthusiasm for classic cocktails played a role in the depletion of 101 Rye’s aged stock. As a whole, the Rye Whiskey category has exploded faster than distillers have been able to keep up - jumping 41 percent in the past 52 weeks (according to Nielsen data). Due to the time and care it takes to craft all Wild Turkey products, distillers Jimmy and Eddie Russell could not simply turn a tap to release more liquid as the unexpected demand grew.

“I have been working in this business for 60 years and if someone told me just five years ago Rye Whiskey was going to be one of the hottest categories in the spirits industry, I would have balked at the notion,” said Jimmy Russell. “To be completely frank, we didn’t realize bartenders had such a passion for it. Given the bartending community can be directly attributed for the current resurgence in Rye and classic cocktails, we had to listen and take the necessary steps with our available aged stock to bring 101 Rye back.”

The Wild Turkey Distillery will continue to make Wild Turkey 81 Rye, a distinct Rye whiskey launched in March 2012 made from a mingling of four to five year old Rye whiskey that is available nationally.

Spirit Hound Distillers Re-Opens In Lyons, CO

image

(Lyons, Colorado) – Two months after its home town was hit by record flooding, Spirit Hound Distillers will get back to business on Friday, November 15 at noon.

Lyons, Colorado’s first distillery, Spirit Hound will have bottles of its gin, vodka and Richardo’s Coffee Liqueur for sale, along with a nearly complete list of its house cocktails and infused vodkas.

“We’re crawling back to life,” says co-founder Neil Sullivan. “Our gear is up & running, we’ve got water and electricity and our toilets are flushing again.”

The timing, he notes, is good. “We have seen so much goodwill from people who want to get up here and support our businesses. It’s been incredible.”
image

Sullivan is also the owner of the St. Vrain Market in Lyons, his store was hit by some of the town’s worst flooding. When he reopened his store a few days ago, he saw that goodwill first hand.

“The day we opened back up,” he recalls, “about all we had for sale were snack chips. A woman came in, grabbed bags of chips and told me, ‘I don’t eat these. But I want to buy something and help you.’”

Spirit Hound is located just a few feet from the typically tranquil St. Vrain River, which record rains turned into a raging river of destruction on September 11.

Distiller Craig Engelhorn was stranded in the Spirit Hound distillery when the flood hit and spent the night of September 11 in a second-floor lounge area.

He woke the next morning to a building filled with water and floating chairs and equipment. The distillery was surrounded with water and floating debris, everything from pieces of destroyed homes to toppled trees and utility poles.

To get back open, Spirit Hound added a new boiler to its brewing system, two new glycol chillers for its fermentation tanks, and a new heating & air-conditioning system.

The tasting room required a rebuild that includes a new bar, new garage doors, a refinishing of all of its wooden tables and chairs, and extensive drywall repairs.

For co-owner Matt Rooney, opening the doors of the distillery is a welcome change of pace.

“Most of us are back home now,” Rooney says, “and every day people are asking us when we’re going to open. They want to come in and support us. So to be able to open back up after all of the damage and destruction here, it feels just great.”

Despite its significant problems, Rooney says the flood has delivered some unexpected benefits. “It has united our town,” Rooney says, “in a special way.”

It has also tightened the connections among him and his Spirit Hound founders. “This distillery,” Rooney says, “was born out of good friendships. This flood has brought our friendships even closer.”

“We’ve learned,” Rooney adds, “that the important things in life are family and friends. I know that’ll sound corny to any one who doesn’t live here. But when you look at what’s happened in this town, it’s a fact. Friendships persevere.”

Spirit Hound’s Neil Sullivan is one of the organizers for flood relief for Lyons residents. People interested in contributing to the relief efforts, he says, can visit www.lyonsfightsback.org to get donation information and donate money.

“For all of those people we’ve heard from around the country who want to pitch in, the site is the best way for them to lend a hand,” Sullivan says.

Jack Daniel’s® Sinatra Select Tennessee Whiskey, Now Available in Major U.S. Markets, Honors a Timeless Friendship

image

LYNCHBURG, Tenn.---One of Jack Daniel’s biggest fans had millions of fans himself. The friendship between Frank Sinatra and Jack Daniel’s goes far beyond a drink choice – it was a defining standard. In honor of this legendary relationship, Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey created Sinatra™ Select, an ultra-premium expression of the world-famous spirit.

“Jack Daniel’s enjoyed an esteemed friendship with the Chairman, in many thanks to our dedicated salesman at the time, Angelo Lucchesi, who understood the power of personal connection”

Previously available only in international duty free retailers and Tennessee, Sinatra Select lands in select retail locations in these U.S. cities and states: Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, San Francisco, New Jersey and Tennessee, between now and the end of the year.

Special “Sinatra barrels” used to make the product are crafted to provide an extra full character and darker rich amber color by exposing the spirit to extra layers of toasted wood on the inner surface of the barrels. The extra rich barrels were mingled with classic Old No. 7 Tennessee Whiskey and bottled at 90 proof, resulting in a character that is full of oak and spice notes with a classic vanilla finish. The smooth, bold character of the whiskey is meant to embody the smooth, bold character of the man. It is available at a suggested retail price of $165.

The classic Sinatra Select box depicts flashes of orange, said to be Frank Sinatra’s favorite color because he thought it was the ‘happiest.’ The limited edition box and bottle both feature nods to Frank Sinatra’s signature and iconic fedora hat. Enclosed is a booklet telling the captivating story of the legendary Jack Daniel’s and Frank Sinatra relationship.

“This fine Tennessee Whiskey, or Old No. 7 as he referred to it, was a favorite part of my father’s life and he loved both sharing it with his friends and introducing it to new acquaintances. I’m very pleased to continue to be a part of the Jack Daniel’s family and feel the introduction of Sinatra Select is an appropriate tribute as we near my father’s 100th birthday in 2015,” said Frank Sinatra, Jr.

True to form, friends of Jack who travel worldwide contributed to Sinatra Select’s success in international duty free retailers and its demand stateside. The whiskey received a welcome celebration fitting of a legend last night at LA’s Sunset Tower, complete with a special performance by Frank Sinatra Jr. honoring Universal Music Group’s 20th anniversary of Frank Sinatra’s Duets album.
image

“Jack Daniel’s enjoyed an esteemed friendship with the Chairman, in many thanks to our dedicated salesman at the time, Angelo Lucchesi, who understood the power of personal connection,” said Jeff Arnett, Master Distiller Jack Daniel’s. “Frank drew in a crowd by beginning his performances with a toast of Jack. Sinatra Select is a partnership between his family and ours at Jack Daniel’s to honor that long-standing, personal affinity. We couldn’t be more proud to salute our legendary friend.”

To enjoy Sinatra Select as Ol’ Blue Eyes would surely do, pour two fingers on the rocks with a splash of water, Arnett suggested.

Glenfiddich Raises $131,616 Benefit Canadian Forces Members

image

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Nov. 6, 2013) -

Glenfiddich, the world's most awarded single malt Scotch has donated $131,616 to Wounded Warriors Canada, their largest single donation received to date.

The donation is a result of an ongoing Glenfiddich fundraiser where two dollars for every bottle of the Glenfiddich 15 Year Old Solera sold across Canada is provided in support of Canada's wounded or injured soldiers and reservists.

"Since the relationship between Glenfiddich and Wounded Warriors Canada began, we have been constantly inspired by their pioneering efforts in support of Canada's injured soldiers and their families," says Beth-Anne Thomas, National Brand Manager for Glenfiddich. "This donation is part of our on-going commitment to their ground-breaking treatment programs and organization. This donation today also represents the support of each and every Glenfiddich 15 Year Old consumer across Canada over the past 12 months and we are committed to continuing this $2.00 per bottle donation into 2014 and beyond."

The record-breaking donation was presented to an overjoyed Phil Ralph, National Program Director of Wounded Warriors Canada Wednesday at the Moss Park Armoury in Toronto, Ontario. Ralph was joined by members of the Wounded Warriors Canada community, servicemen and women from the armoury and Glenfiddich representatives.

"A commitment to family and a pioneering spirit has always been at the forefront of our relationship with Glenfiddich," says Ralph. "It's without a doubt their fundraising support has helped build much needed awareness that will positively affect the lives of Canadian Forces members and their families in a profound way."

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 Scotch. The "Janet Sheed Roberts Reserve 55 Year Old" set the record as the most expensive bottle of whisky sold at auction in Canada, selling for $52,000 CAD. Glenfiddich plans to continue donating $2 from every bottle of Glenfiddich 15 Year Old Solera across Canada into 2014 and beyond.

Glenfiddich and Wounded Warriors Canada are both pioneers in their fields. Glenfiddich remains family owned and operated for over 125 years, championing the development of the Single Malt Scotch Whisky business and established the unique Solera process for creating the Glenfiddich 15 year Old. Wounded Warriors Canada are the number one independent military charity in Canada with a primary focus on mental health and offers Canada's first-ever Veterans Transition Program. They also offer pioneering programs like the PTSD Elite Service Dog Program and the life-changing Big Battlefield Bike Ride.
