The Pogues Irish Whiskey Now Available in US

imageBOSTON, Feb. 25, 2016 - The eponymous Irish whiskey from The Pogues, whose Celtic take on punk took rock by storm in the '80s, is now available to band fans and finer whiskey lovers alike in the US, after rolling out in the UK last fall. The exceptionally full bodied, yet smooth-finishing blend, is produced by West Cork Distillers, one of only two remaining independently owned and operated distilleries in Ireland. 



Having sampled their share of brown spirits over the years, the band, known for Fairytale in New York and other hits, was deeply involved in the creation of The Pogues Irish Whiskey from start to finish. Rich with the band's legendary spirit, character and poetic rebelliousness, The Pogues Irish Whiskey is a unique blend of 50% 10-year single malt Irish whiskey aged in sherry casks and 50% 5-7 year Irish grain whiskey aged in bourbon oak casks. The resulting liquid has an aroma of malts and cracked nuts, with a sweet taste and a smooth, intense flavor. </P

Notably, West Cork is Ireland's only whiskey producer to still malt its own barley, enabling exceptional precision and control over flavor profile. 



"It's been brilliant working with the team at West Cork Distillers in creating a whiskey that we all think reflects our spirit and energy, and that we all enjoy the taste of," said Shane MacGowan along with Pogues band members, Jem Finer, Andrew Ranken, Spider Stacy, James Fearnley, Terry Woods, and Darryl Hunt. "It's wonderful to add a product bearing our name to the ranks of great Irish whiskeys, and we think it will stand the test of time."



The Pogues Irish Whiskey is distilled using ingredients indigenous to Ireland, including locally grown grain and spring water from the idyllic River Ilen. It's carefully crafted in small batches in handmade copper stills at West Cork's distillery in Skiberdeen, the cultural home of Irish whiskey.



"The Pogues Irish Whiskey represents the ideal blending of tradition and quality from our friends at West Cork, and the rich Irish heritage and culture of the band," said Justin Shaw, VP of Brand & Market Strategy at MS Walker. "We can't wait for American aficionados of the band and whiskey, new and old, to enjoy their first taste."



The Pogues Irish Whiskey (40%ABV) is imported into the United States by MS Walker, and is available just in time for St. Patrick's Dayat bars, restaurants and retailers throughout the country. Suggested Retail Price: $39.99 for 750ml. Assets, including product sheet, videos and images, can be downloaded here. For more information visit www.thepoguesirishwhiskey.com

American Whiskey Comes Home: American Whiskey Convention is a Grand Tasting at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, PA on March 25th

PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 25, 2016  Pennsylvania is the birthplace of American Whiskey. On March 25th, Philadelphia is hosting the country's most exciting distilleries as they highlight their best bourbons and American whiskeys.

Up until prohibition, Pennsylvania was at the heart of American Rye whiskey production. Pennsylvania grew the grains, distilled the spirits and distributed whiskey to the entire nation. Today, there is an American whiskey renaissance happening, and once again,Pennsylvania is taking center stage.



Organized by the Delaware Valley Fields Foundation, the American Whiskey Convention will draw distillers from all over the country to showcase their bourbons and American whiskeys. Citizens Bank Park, home of the Philadelphia Phillies, in Philadelphia PA is the backdrop for this celebration of American whiskey.



"We are very excited to be able to host the American Whiskey Convention. We have put together a whiskey event for people who enjoy whiskey. I wanted an event that highlights the creativity happening in American whiskey right now, everything from farming, distilling and the artisans who draw their inspiration from the booming whiskey scene.  There is so much going on and American Whiskey deserves to have the spotlight to itself," says Laura Fields, CEO and founder of Delaware Valley Fields Foundation.



The event is more than a grand tasting. On hand will be local farmers and malt houses to talk about the role they play in the production of whiskey. Artisans will demonstrate their whiskey-related creations. Master distillers Herman Mihalich, of Dad's Hat andDave Pickerell, the man behind Whistle Pig and many others, host discussion classes for whiskey connoisseurs. Sarah Milne, of Heaven Hill, hosts a Whiskey 101 tasting for those who are new to whiskey. Mixologists from TwistedTail will be teaching how to make great whiskey cocktails. The Victory Special Order Lounge highlights whiskeys not found on PA liquor store shelves.



"We've been fortunate to work with so many great partners – the distillers themselves, the Phillies, Sugarhouse Casino, Victory Motorcycles, PLCB and so many more. It has been a collaborative effort to create this spectacular event that puts Pennsylvania andPhiladelphia back at the center of the American Whiskey map," Laura continues.



The event is sponsored by the Delaware Valley Fields Foundation to help promote the role that local small farming plays in the production of whiskey. The Delaware Valley Fields Foundation is committed to promoting the role and history of local small farming. Working together with farmers and other local non-profits, the Delaware Valley Fields Foundation helps bring attention to the vital role of small farming in our communities.

Jack Daniel's Single Barrel Announces Newest Addition To Collection With Launch Of Single Barrel Rye

imageLYNCHBURG, Tenn., Feb. 9, 2016 The Jack Daniel Distillery announces the nationwide release of the brand's third offering within the Single Barrel Collection and first new grain bill in 100 years, Jack Daniel's Single Barrel Rye. This expression marks the first time consumers can experience a fully matured rye product from Jack Daniel's. The newest member of the Jack Daniel's Family of Brands will be on shelves February 2016 and will be available across the U.S.

"Rye was one of the earliest forms of American whiskey and as the Master Distiller at Jack Daniel's, I'm proud to honor that history with the release of Single Barrel Rye. There is a reemerging trend of rye whiskeys and we are excited to be able to give friends ofJack Daniel's a chance to experience it," said Jeff Arnett, Jack Daniel's Master Distiller. "You never want to over-barrel a rye whiskey so it was important for us to stay true to the style with grain forward character rather than barrel character while still allowing our barrels to interplay with the whiskey. I'm confident that everyone will be as impressed as I am with the taste and character of this bold new rye offering."

Rye, at 94-proof, is the Jack Daniel Distillery's third offering in theSingle Barrel Collection which includes Jack Daniel's Single Barrel Select and Barrel Proof. Select is a 94-proof single barrel Tennessee Whiskey and Barrel Proof ranges from 125 to 140 proof. Each expression in the Single Barrel Collection offers a robust, full-bodied flavor complemented by Jack Daniel's smooth charcoal-mellowed character. Together, Select, Barrel Proof and Rye combine to create the world's finest collection of single barrel Tennessee Whiskey.

Rye is crafted using a unique 70 percent rye, 18 percent corn and 12 percent malted barley grain bill giving the whiskey a clean, sweet tone at the tip of the tongue with a more distinct and slightly shorter finish than other Single Barrel offerings. Rye also uses the same cave spring water from the Jack Daniel's Hollow, proprietary yeast and charcoal-mellowing process that's been used in the distillery's 150-year-old Tennessee Whiskey recipe. From there, the liquid enters a charred White American Oak barrel, crafted at Jack Daniel's very own cooperage and set to age in the upper regions of the barrelhouse. In this resting place, the whiskey is exposed to the extreme temperature variations that a Lynchburg, Tennesseeseason brings. The interaction of the whiskey, the wood and the environment brings out distinct flavor profiles that transcend what you would expect of a rye whiskey to become Single Barrel Rye.

Single Barrel Rye completes the distillery's journey into rye whiskies, following limited release batches of Rested Rye in 2014 and Unaged Rye in 2012, allowing fans to taste the maturing rye over time. Rye starts off lightly sweet and mid-palate opens up to a dried fruit and trail mix flavor, finishing slightly shorter than the other Single Barrels as Rye is much more about grain rather than barrel character. Rye is a complex and robust whiskey that brings something unique to the palates of Jack Daniel's friends and whiskey enthusiasts alike.  

Jack Daniel's Single Barrel Rye will be available nationwide beginning February 2016. The product will be priced approximately$49.99 per 750ml.

Orphan Barrel™ Adds Newest Offering with Release of The Gifted Horse American Whiskey™

imageTULLAHOMA, Tenn., Feb. 3, 2016 Some time ago at the historic Stitzel-Weller Distillery in Louisville, Ky., a batch of beautiful 17-year-old Kentucky bourbon was accidentally mixed with barrels of much younger whiskey. This error turned out better than anyone could have expected as the older bourbon wasn't marred, but was transformed into something surprisingly special. Realizing this unique liquid deserved a home, The Orphan Barrel Whiskey Distilling Co. today announced the seventh addition to its portfolio, The Gifted Horse American Whiskey.

The Gifted Horse (115 proof/57.5% ABV) is comprised of 38.5% 17-year-old Kentucky straight bourbon, distilled at the Bernheim Distillery historically located at 17th and Breckinridge in Louisville, Ky., while operated by United Distillers. It also contains 51% four-year-old bourbon and 10.5% four-year-old corn whiskey, both produced at a high-quality distillery in Indiana. Initially, these individual whiskeys were stored at their original distilleries before being moved to Stitzel-Weller, where the mingling error occurred.

"As one of my favorite Orphan Barrel releases to-date, The Gifted Horse is proof that not all great inventions are planned," said Ewan Morgan, Master of Whiskey for DIAGEO. "A one-of-a-kind whiskey, The Gifted Horse will be right at home in the Orphan Barrel family as a delicious and complex sipping whiskey we're excited to share with true aficionados."

Beginning with a nose hinting at apple skin, almond, toffee, raisins and slight milk chocolate, The Gifted Horse has unique tasting notes of creamy caramel, Bosc pear and fruit cake. This unusual blend's fruity notes become more apparent with a splash of water.

The Gifted Horse's package design reflects the lucky fortune in discovering such a unique whiskey, featuring a lighthearted illustrative style, a horseshoe and the prominently featured Gifted Horse image. Hinting at what's inside the bottle, the weathered red label entices those to discover a whiskey bold and flavorful.

The Gifted Horse was hand bottled in Tullahoma, Tenn. and highly allocated, with no future releases planned. The seventh release from Orphan Barrel is available nationwide at a suggested retail price of$50.

The Orphan Barrel Whiskey Distilling Co. was started in 2014 with the goal to locate nearly forgotten barrels of whiskey from around the world and share them with discerning adult fans. The Gifted Horse follows six previous Orphan Barrel releases, all Kentucky bourbons: Barterhouse (20-Year-Old), Old Blowhard (26-Year-Old), Rhetoric (20-Year-Old and 21-Year-Old), Lost Prophet (22-Year-Old) and Forged Oak (15-Year-Old). Orphan Barrel reminds discerning adult fans lucky enough to get their hands on a bottle to sip slowly and responsibly.
