Black Bourbon Society's Maker's Mark® Private Selection: Recipe 2 Takes Home Pair of First Place Medals at 2021 International Whisky Competition

Black Bourbon Society's Maker's Mark® Private Selection: Recipe 2 Takes Home Pair of First Place Medals at 2021 International Whisky Competition

The Organization's Custom Maker's Mark Whisky was Named World's Best Bourbon and Best American Whiskey

ATLANTA, June 17, 2021 Black Bourbon Society (BBS), in collaboration with the Maker's Mark® Private Selection program, has created a custom bourbon that an expert panel has deemed the best in the world. Black Bourbon Society's Maker's Mark Private Selection: Recipe 2 was named Best Bourbon and Best American Whiskey overall at the 12th annual International Whisky Competition (IWC), bringing in two first place gold medals – the competition's highest category honor.

The IWC awards mark the latest achievements in a string of high-profile wins for Black Bourbon Society and Maker's Mark. Black Bourbon Society was awarded a Double Gold medal for its first Maker's Mark Private Selection Bourbon at the 19th Annual San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC) in 2019, while Maker's Mark took home its own Double Gold medal for its classic Maker's Mark Kentucky Straight Bourbon at the same competition in 2021.

"We are so proud and humbled to have been recognized with such distinguished honors from the prestigious International Whisky Competition and view this achievement as further proof that intentional diversity will always produce superior results," said Co-Founders of Black Bourbon Society Samara and Armond Davis.  "We knew that the best expression we could create would be a perfect blend of our two very different palates, and the unique Maker's Mark Private Selection program allowed for us to do exactly that. We look forward to continuing our successful partnership with Maker's Mark as we work together to push the envelope and advocate for diversity and inclusion in the spirits industry."

Billed as the world's most-followed whisky competition, the IWC brings the best whiskies from around the world to be tasted and rated by a professional tasting panel, employing a unique medallion point system to name only one winner per category. With 93.8 points, Black Bourbon Society's Maker's Mark Private Selection: Recipe 2 was the highest scored American whisky of any in the entire competition.

"It's been an honor to get to know and work with Samara and Armond Davis over the last few years, and a privilege to collaborate with them on spectacular bourbons that are not only delicious, but that also benefit underserved communities in the spirits industry and encourage diversity, equity and inclusion through Black Bourbon Society's Diversity Distilled philanthropic programs," said Rob Samuels, 8th-Generation Whisky Maker at Maker's Mark. "Black Bourbon Society's first Maker's Mark Private Selection was a fan favorite, and we're thrilled to see that the second selection has only built upon the well-deserved, award-winning legacy of their organization."

This award-winning bourbon, hitting shelves now in celebration of Black Bourbon Society's 5th anniversary, was created through the Maker's Mark Private Selection program, which allows retail partners to "make their own Maker's®" by finishing fully-matured, cask strength Maker's Mark Bourbon with a custom selection of ten proprietary oak staves. Recipe 2 sets itself a part as one of the first Private Selections to include the newest Maker's Mark Private Selection stave, Roasted French Mendiant. Named after a French confection featuring chocolate, dried fruit and nuts, the stave lends notes of milk chocolate, buttery nut and smooth coffee.

The best-in-class Recipe 2 is now available for $69.99 MSRP (750ml) in Louisville, Ky., Chicago, Ill., New York, N.Y., Atlanta, Ga. and Tampa, Fla, and will continue to roll out in California, North Carolina, Washington, D.C., and Alabama over the next year.

ABOUT MAKER'S MARK® BOURBON:
In 1953, in Loretto, Ky., Bill Samuels, Sr., fulfilled his dream to create a handmade and delicious bourbon. He decided to make his whisky in small batches, using soft red winter wheat to enhance the softness and sweetness. He then rotated each barrel by hand for consistency and, finally, aged each barrel to taste. Bill Samuels, Sr., transformed bourbon from a "commodity" into a premium handmade spirit, and today Maker's Mark® continues to make its bourbon the same way. That time-tested approach seems to still be working just fine 60+ years later, as Maker's Mark Kentucky Straight Bourbon was awarded a Double Gold medal at the esteemed San Francisco Spirits Competition in 2021. In recent years, Maker's Mark has introduced thoughtful, super-premium innovations to its portfolio, including Maker's Mark 46®, Maker's Mark® Cask Strength and Maker's Mark® Private Selection, the brand's first-ever custom barrel program.

Foundry Distilling & Surly Brewing Join Forces to Create Furious Whiskey

Foundry Distilling & Surly Brewing Join Forces to Create Furious Whiskey

West Des Moines, IA (June 15, 2021) – What do you get when a brewery that doesn’t settle teams up with a distillery that’s driven to create exceptional spirits, and they make a whiskey out of a renowned beer? The answer: something truly remarkable. Foundry Distilling Co. and Surly Brewing Co. have collaborated to create Furious Whiskey, distilled from the wort of Surly’s Furious IPA beer. This whiskey will be released on July 10th, 2021.


“This has been a fantastic collaboration with our Midwestern neighbor, Surly Brewing Company” said Scott Bush, owner of Foundry Distilling Company. “We know whiskey enthusiasts will love this take on their iconic, hoppy, and aggressive Furious IPA” Surlys Furious IPA’s aggressively in-your-face hoppy and citrusy nature has been distilled into an American single malt whiskey with every ounce of zesty citrus sweetness as its beer counterpart. Surly brought the beer’s wort to Foundry Distilling Co., where it was fermented, distilled, and aged for 24 months in new 30-gallon charred American Oak barrels to produce the whiskey. In total, Foundry has made 1,000 cases in a limited run that pushes the envelope of what makes a spirit unique.


Furious Whiskey Tasting Notes:

Foundry Distilling Co. is hosting a launch party at their distillery in Historic Valley Junction, Iowa, on Saturday, July 10th, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. to celebrate the Furious Whiskey release. This event is open to the public, and the first 100 attendees will get a complimentary branded rocks glass. At the event, people can sample Furious Whiskey and Furious IPA while meeting with Foundry Distilling Co’s head distiller Greg Biagi and Surly Brewing Founder Omar Ansari. 
 
Those looking to secure a bottle of this one-of-a-kind whiskey before the launch date can do so by pre-ordering online at BrewerDistillerAlliance.com . People that have pre-ordered will have two weeks from the release date to claim their bottle.

This collaboration with Surly Brewing Co. was made possible through Foundry Distilling Co.’s Brewer-Distiller Alliance initiative, which aims to work with outstanding breweries across the nation to produce remarkable, distinctive whiskeys from their beer recipes. The breweries produce the wort using their recipes, and Foundry then ferments, distills, and barrel ages the spirit to create whiskey. Foundry Distilling Company and its partners have generated a diverse collection of exclusive limited-edition whiskeys.


Foundry is also working with Surly on another special whiskey, based on the brewery’s Axe Man IPA, that is scheduled to be released during the 3rd quarter of 2022.

Harlem Standard Launches Two New Whiskeys

NEW YORK, June 15, 2021 After a very successful 2020 launch (despite the pandemic), Harlem Standard has decided to bottle two new products and expand to New Jersey, distributed exclusively by Fedway, effective immediately.

Built with Harlem as its backdrop, the lifestyle brand attracts whiskey enthusiasts from all walks of life who want to be a part of something authentic, poignant, and a bit rebellious. And now, there are two new products to try!

Harlem Standard 101-Proof 7-Yr Straight American Whiskey
Aged for seven years in Speyside barrels and bottled at 101 proof, Harlem Standard's 7-Year American Straight Whiskey stands on its own. This spirit is 95% wheat, rooted in hints of vanilla and cream but seamlessly balanced by charred wood.

Harlem Standard 93-Proof Bourbon Straight Whiskey
Harlem Standard Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a proprietary high-rye, 4-grain blend. This well-rounded bourbon blends mellow spice, roasted nuts, and a vanilla bean finish.

Harlem Standard has seen tremendous growth and success in its primary year with the release of a 90-Proof Straight American Whiskey and the impossibly smooth 111-Proof Bourbon Straight Whiskey 4-Grain. Having gained popularity in the competitive city of Manhattan, Harlem Standard can also be found locally in venerable retailers like Sherry-Lehmann, Acker Wines, Harlem Vintage, and select locations in Nashville, Tampa, and now the greater New Jersey area.

Like Harlem itself, Harlem Standard is in a constant state of growth and evolution. The company anticipates launching in several locations nationwide before the end of 2021.

A portion of the proceeds from every bottle of Harlem Standard whiskey benefits the Jazz Foundation of America's COVID-19 Musicians' Emergency Fund.

For any inquiries about the brand, the products, or the launch, please contact info@harlemstandard.com or visit harlemstandard.com.

Gordon & MacPhail Introduces the World's Oldest Single Malt Scotch Whisky: Generations 80YO From Glenlivet Distillery Presented in Partnership With Sir David Adjaye Obe

ELGIN, Scotland, June 15, 2021 - Whisky creator Gordon & MacPhail is set to release the world's oldest single malt Scotch whisky this September - an 80-Years-Old from Glenlivet Distillery - in partnership with Sir David Adjaye OBE.

On 3rd February 1940 in a quiet corner in the north of Scotland, George Urquhart and his father, John, had the extraordinary foresight and vision to lay down spirit from Glenlivet Distillery in a bespoke Gordon & MacPhail cask to be enjoyed by future generations.

Referred to by renowned whisky writer Charlie MacLean as 'the father of single malt', George Urquhart passionately believed that each whisky should be left to mature until the cask and spirit had combined to create the desired quality, and it was ready to be shared. The time for Cask 340 was to be 80 years – longer than any other Scotch whisky in history.

On 5th February 2020, leaning on the unique skill and experience acquired over more than 125 years, the decision was taken to finally bottle the cask's precious out-turn, yielding a total of 250 decanters.

"That this whisky - the oldest single malt Scotch ever bottled - remains so full of vibrant flavour with a strength of 44.9% ABV, is testimony to knowledge handed down over successive generations of my family," explains Stephen Rankin, Director of Prestige at Gordon & MacPhail Whiskies, and member of the fourth generation of the family that owns the company.

For over 125 years, Gordon & MacPhail has been driven by a simple mission: to create single malt Scotch whisky of exceptional quality. Through four generations of family ownership, the company has matched its own casks with spirit from over 100 Scottish distilleries. It is this unique depth and breadth of experience that enables Gordon & MacPhail to combine oak, spirit and time to create iconic whiskies found nowhere else in the world.

To celebrate John and George Urquhart's vision, Gordon & MacPhail has collaborated with internationally acclaimed architect and designer, Sir David Adjaye OBE, to create a unique decanter and oak case to house the world's most precious whisky to date. Described as 'an architect with an artist's sensibilities and vision', Adjaye was a natural choice as a creative partner; a man who shares the company's values of artistry, legacy, and craftsmanship.

"When collaborating, I am looking for like-minded partners in terms of their craft, beliefs and traditions. I loved Gordon & MacPhail's rigour and obsession with their products and their craft – a romantic commitment that enables one to do exceptional things. Our partnership felt so organic," expresses Adjaye.

"Maturing a single malt Scotch over eight decades is an art," adds Ewen Mackintosh, Managing Director at Gordon & MacPhail, "similar in many ways to architecture where you are creating something that needs to stand the test of time. Neither can be rushed. Both Sir David and Gordon & MacPhail share a commitment to invest in the future. We both see the significance of creating something exceptional; leaving a legacy for future generations."

In the same way that a 50th anniversary is commemorated by gold, 80 years is traditionally symbolised by oak - a pleasing reflection of this whisky, cradled in oak for eight decades. Sir David Adjaye's stunning decanter and case will be revealed in September 2021, with decanter number #1 auctioned by Sotheby's in early October 2021. To continue the legacy theme, auction proceeds, minus costs, will be donated to award-winning Scottish charity Trees for Life whose mission is to rewild the Caledonian Forest.

"It's fitting that this release will provide a relevant, valuable and long-lasting legacy with direct benefits for many," comments Ewen Mackintosh.

The Generations range from Gordon & MacPhail has previously presented some of the longest matured single malt Scotch whisky ever to be bottled. Its reputation will be further enhanced this September when the Gordon & MacPhail Generations 80YO from Glenlivet Distillery will finally be unveiled.

Ole Smoky Distillery Launches Small-Batch Premium Whiskey Brand - James Ownby Reserve Tennessee Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Ole Smoky Distillery Launches Small-Batch Premium Whiskey Brand - James Ownby Reserve Tennessee Straight Bourbon Whiskey

GATLINBURG, Tenn. – (June 15, 2021) – Ole Smoky Distillery, one of the nation’s fastest growing spirits companies, announced the launch of their small-batch premium whiskey brand today with their first expression honoring family ties, James Ownby Reserve Tennessee Straight Bourbon Whiskey.


The 94-proof whiskey is aged in American virgin charred oak barrels and filtered utilizing the Lincoln County Process, passing through sugar maple charcoal before aging. Less than 200 barrels of James Ownby Reserve will be released this month.

The whiskey commemorates the remarkable history and spirit of James Ownby - the 5th generation great-grandfather of Ole Smoky Distillery’s Founder, Joe Baker, handing down a family tradition.


“James Ownby lived a life so epic we still tell his tale. A son of the revolution, a soldier - he was dedicated to his country. He enlisted at 17 and served six tours of duty throughout his esteemed military career. James fearlessly fought for our young country’s freedom, for his beliefs and for a better way of life. His most notable service came as a member of the renowned ‘Overmountain Men’ regiment under the command of Colonel John Sevier in the Battle of Kings Mountain – the
battle which Thomas Jefferson fittingly deemed ‘The turn of the tide of success,’ in the Revolutionary War,” said Baker.


In the late 1800s, James set down roots in East Tennessee, just a stone’s throw from where Ole Smoky operates the distillery today on the edge of Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The Ownby family became known as one of the original families who settled in the area and brought their knowledge of distilling.


“James Ownby Reserve pays tribute to my family’s heritage and legacy,” said Baker. “This new brand embodies our creativity and commitment to creating small-batch whiskey and the team at Ole Smoky is proud to bring the product to market.”

The James Ownby Reserve bottle and label design celebrates Tennessee with the state’s three stars found on the Tennessee State Flag, each representing the areas of Tennessee, middle, east, and west. It includes a personal message and signature of Joe Baker as he carries the legend forward through the whiskey created to honor his ancestor’s remarkable life.

James Ownby Reserve Tennessee Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a rich, warm, deep caramel, easy-sipping spirit with a distinctly southern soul. Enjoyed neat or on the rocks, James Ownby Reserve Tennessee Straight Bourbon Whiskey will be available in major markets and at Ole
Smoky’s Barrelhouse Distillery in Gatlinburg and 6th & Peabody in Nashville.
