The 2020 Release of Michter's 10 Year Rye

The 2020 Release of Michter's 10 Year RyeLOUISVILLE, Ky., July 8, 2020 - This month, Louisville based Michter's Distillery will begin shipping the 2020 release of its 10 Year Single Barrel Rye.

"This will be the only release of our 10 Year Rye this year because we continue to be in a position where we need to allocate our whiskeys," commented Michter's President Joseph J. Magliocco. "I am very grateful to our team for the terrific job they have been doing." While Michter's Fort Nelson Distillery has been shut since mid-March, Michter's Shively Distillery has continued to distill and bottle.

"I just love Kentucky style rye because it has not only great spice, but also the richness and the balance that comes from having a fair amount of corn and malted barley in the mashbill. And I think the 2020 release of our 10 Year Rye is an outstanding example of Kentucky style rye," said Michter's Master Distiller Dan McKee.

"There is nothing quite like really good rye distillate that's been aged with thoughtful care for over a decade in a barrel that was toasted and then charred and in a warehouse that has been heat cycled to produce a deep, rich flavor profile perfect for sipping," commented Michter's Master of Maturation Andrea Wilson.

The suggested U.S. retail price per 750ml bottle of Michter's 10 Year Rye is $160.

Beyond its main distillery in the Shively section of Louisville, Michter's operations extend to two other sites in Kentucky. In Springfield, Michter's is farming estate grown grain on its 145-acre property, while in downtown Louisville, Michter's has its second distillery in the historic Fort Nelson building. Situated in a prime location on West Main Street opposite Louisville Slugger and on the same block as the Frazier Museum, Michter's Fort Nelson Distillery features the legendary pot still system from Michter's Pennsylvania Distillery. When open, it also has educational tours with whiskey tastings as well as The Bar at Fort Nelson, which features classic cocktails curated by spirits and cocktail historian David Wondrich.

Michter's makes highly acclaimed, limited production whiskeys. Michter's is renowned for its single barrel rye, small batch bourbon, single barrel bourbon, and small batch American whiskey.  For more information, please visit www.michters.com, and follow us on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

Waterford Distillery Brings Forward New Single Farm Origins After Sell-Out Debut

imageAfter the dramatic success of its first commercial bottlings, which sold out within a matter of hours in major retailers across Europe, terroir-driven producer Waterford Distillery has brought forward four new whisky bottlings to meet demand.

The Single Farm Origin whiskies form part of Waterford’s highly sought-after range of uber-provenance, natural single malt whiskies, which explore Irish terroir one farm, once place, at a time.

Influenced by the world's greatest winemakers, Waterford Distillery obsessively brings the same intellectual drive, methodology & rigour to single malt whisky. For the first time the focus is on barley, the origin of whisky’s complex flavours. Irish barley is widely considered to be the world's finest.

Waterford’s Single Farm Origin whiskies are expressions of precision and purity showcasing barley flavours derived from individual Irish farms and harvests.

THE PRECISION OF PLACE 

The debut of two entirely new Single Farm Origins editions are:

Ballymorgan: Edition 1.1 - grown by Robert Milne on one of Ireland’s premier malting barley terroirs - the famous Clonroche Series in Co. Wexford, with its loamy, clay soils derived from slate and granite.

Sheestown: Edition 1.1 - grown just outside the historic town of Kilkenny on an undulating, well-drained, lowland terroir predominantly derived from limestone, by Phil O’Brien, father of one of our distillery workers.

In addition, a reprise of the original two sold out bottlings, slightly older second editions, has been brought forward to meet demand:

Bannow Island: Edition 1.2 - the second release, now 3 months older, was grown by Ed Harpur on the extreme southern coast of Co. Wexford, where salt-laden Atlantic winds and sandy soils create a unique, if challenging, terroir.

Ballykilcavan: Edition 1.2 - the second release, now 3 months older, uses barley grown by David Walsh-Kemmis west of the Barrow in Co. Laois in the barley heartlands, where his fertile fields are sheltered by ancient woodland.

Bottled at 50% ABV without colouring, chill-filtration or any additives – totally natural – each bottle is priced at €70-80/£70 and will be available from specialist retailers from the end of July 2020 onwards. 

9,000 bottles of each whisky will be available throughout Europe, Taiwan and Japan, with totally unique Single Farm Origins coming to the US in September.

Supporting the unparalleled provenance is the full disclosure on each whisky, including barrel breakdown, barley agronomy, farm origin maps, distillation data, farm photography and field audio accessed via each bottle's unique TÉIREOIR Code.

Waterford Distillery Founder & CEO Mark Reynier says: "We knew there was great interest from the inquisitive, curious and open-minded in our unique philosophy but we were totally unprepared – and mighty humbled – by such an enthusiastic reception. We know this has meant some frustration for people getting their hands on a pair, but please bear with us.

“Our distributors say this is the most successful launch of a new distillery brand they have ever seen, and we have all been taken off guard. Everyone associated with Waterford Whisky from farmers to maltsters to distillers to warehousemen should be very proud. Sure, it’s early days, but our novel, traceable, transparent, terroir approach seems to have found a niche appreciated by today’s enlightened consumers."

Award-Winning Milam & Greene Whiskey Hits Shelves in Illinois

imageBLANCO, TEXAS  JULY 01, 2020 - Milam & Greene Whiskey 2020’s most buzz-worthy craft whiskey brand hits store shelves in Illinois this month, marking the whiskey’s first expansion outside of Texas. The award-winning Milam & Greene Triple Cask Straight Bourbon Whiskey and Milam & Greene Straight Rye Whiskey Finished in Port Wine Casks are available at Illinois locations of Binny’s Beverage Depot, the Midwest’s largest wine, spirits, and beer store. The whiskey brand is named after partners Marsha Milam and Heather Greene, both of whom have deep Illinois roots.

“Bringing Milam & Greene Whiskey to Illinois is a homecoming for us,” says Milam & Greene Whiskey founder Marsha Milam, born and raised in Casey, IL. “As the daughter of a Central Illinois Basin oilman, whiskey was like currency in our house. If anyone did you a favor you gave them a bottle of good whiskey. Now I have some good whiskey of my own. I cannot wait to get back up home and share our whiskey with friends, family, and Illinois whiskey lovers. See you soon!”

“My Irish family worked the railroads and the stockyards of Chicago, helping make it the City of Big Shoulders,” says Heather Greene, CEO and master blender of Milam & Greene Whiskey. “My best childhood memories are of giant Thanksgivings celebrations held with my family in the South Side. My grandmother Hurley had 10 siblings, and there would be something like 50 family members eating together with plenty of whiskey for adults and tomfoolery amongst us kids. I’m glad we can bring Milam & Greene Whiskey to Illinois and hope my family won’t buy it all before the public can get to them. You might want to hurry up.”

Milam and Greene is a truly American Whiskey crafted by an incredible whiskey making team with grains from across the U.S., exquisite Texas Hill Country limestone filtered water and climate, and whiskey aged to optimal maturity in pristine casks in a very unique terroir. The Milam & Greene Whiskey team distills both in their hometown of Blanco, Texas and in master distiller Marlene Holmes’s home state of Kentucky. In addition to distilling on-site and off-site, the team blends, batches, sources, finishes, and hand-bottles. The team plans to introduce its Double Gold winning Milam & Greene Barrel Proof to the Illinois market in the coming months.

About the Whiskies

  • Milam & Greene Triple Cask Straight Bourbon Whiskey is made from 70% Texas corn, 22% Pacific Northwest malted rye from Oregon and Washington, 8% Wyoming barley, and our proprietary yeast recipe from Kentucky and Texas. Each bottle of Milam & Greene Triple Cask is a batch of three hand selected straight bourbon whiskies: 2-year-old premium Texas bourbon for a pop of spice married with 3 to 4-year-old Tennessee whiskey for vanillas and fruits, and 10 to 11-year-old Tennessee whiskey for structure and tannins. It is then proofed to taste and bottled on site. This bourbon has a deep golden color, along with refined and elegant aromas with pops of vanilla, floral and spice. The palate is creamy and soft, surprisingly smooth for a 94-proof spirit, and has a medium warm finish, with structure and tannins.
  • Milam & Greene Port Finished Straight Rye Whiskey, which won a Double Gold at the 2020 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, is a gorgeous ruby colored whiskey with luscious aromas of cinnamon, chocolate, and dark fruits such as black currants and blackberries. Robust flavors are carried in a rich, velvety whiskey with a long warm finish. Casks are brought from Indiana to Texas where they are first batched in the Blanco rickhouse and then finished in old Port wine casks from Portugal. The casks are meticulously curated, vatted for consistency, and monitored for flavor. The Texan sun and varied humidity levels influence the rate and strength of flavor imparted into the 94-proof whiskey, making this a tricky whiskey to produce.

Pricing and Availability
Milam & Greene Whiskey is distributed statewide in Illinois by Promark International Distributing, Inc. and is available at Binny’s Beverage Depot, as well as shipped and delivered throughout Illinois. Milam & Greene Triple Cask Straight Bourbon Whiskey is available for a suggested retail price of $44.99 and Milam & Greene Straight Rye Whiskey Finished in Port Wine Casks has a suggested retail price of $49.99.

About Provision Spirits
Provisions Spirits was founded in 2017 and produces both the flagship brand of Milam & Greene Whiskey and Ben Milam Whiskey. The distillery is led by an all-star team of whiskey experts with more than 58 years of American whiskey making experience including CEO, partner and master blender, Heather Greene, veteran Kentucky master distiller Marlene Holmes and chief brewer Jordan Osborne. Provision Spirits Milam & Greene is named for the partnership formed between Texas entrepreneur Marsha Milam and whiskey expert Heather Greene. Provision Spirits believes brilliance in independent whiskey making requires the integration of the highest quality distilling, aging, blending, batching, proofing, sourcing, finishing and bottling practices to achieve complexity and balance to please the most demanding palate.

Seagram's 7 Crown Joins Social Pledge to Rally Further Support for Bartending Community All Summer Long

NEW YORK, June 30, 2020 Seagram's 7 Crown has always been at home in dive bars, and now these local havens and their bartenders are facing unprecedented challenges. To show support as bars begin to re-open this summer, Seagram's 7 Crown is joining Diageo's #TipsFromHome social program, a movement providing the bartending community with ongoing financial relief.

As part of the initiative, Seagram's 7 Crown has teamed up with bartenders from across the country to mix up unique twists on the classic 7&7 cocktail through a social video series. These recipes tap into the spirit of ease, comfort and total lack of pretension we've missed from our neighborhood dives while they've been closed. In addition to walking through a unique 7&7 recipe, each bartender shares what dive bars mean to them.

Now, each time someone shares the brand's #TipsFromHome posts and tags up to seven friends, Seagram's 7 Crown & Diageo will donate $1 up to $1 million to the USBG Bartender Emergency Assistance Program. Through the #TipsFromHome program, the brand is helping hundreds of bartenders get back to work, while also pledging financial support to the USBG Bartender Emergency Assistance Fund. Seagram's 7 Crown hopes adults of legal age can join in raising a glass and tip the local bartenders they've missed seeing.

"Bartenders are truly the heart and soul of our favorite dive bars and it's important we continue to support this community. While we would normally celebrate National Dive Bar Day in July, we realize it will take more than one day to help our friends across the hospitality industry, so we'll be supporting them all summer long with #TipsFromHome," said Diageo Brand Director Jason Sorley. "We're hoping this program helps our friends in the hospitality industry, while giving loyal patrons an opportunity to raise a glass and support their favorite bars across the country for years to come."

Diageo first launched the #TipsFromHome program in April, giving people recipes to make delicious cocktails at-home, along with the ability to "tip" those in the bar and restaurant community who are in need across a selection of national and local charities. As part of the #TipsFromHome program, Seagram's 7 Crown partnered with five bartenders working at dive bars across the country, including St. Louis Bartender Meggan Hunott, Houston Bartender Kamikka McQueen, Indianapolis Bartender Alli King, Los Angeles Bartender Dorian Dorsey and Jacksonville Bartender Fernando Meza. You can find their take on the classic 7&7 on Seagram's Instagram.

Seagram's 7 Crown is a carefully blended American whiskey aged in oak with a rich and casual history. The whiskey shares a storied past with dive bars, as both have been an integral part of American drinking culture. To learn more about #TipsFromHome and the USBG Bartender Emergency Assistance Program, adults 21 and older can visit seagrams7.com or follow the #TipsFromHome conversation on social media.

No matter how you choose to celebrate dive bars re-opening this summer, Seagram's 7 Crown reminds you to always drink responsibly.
