Rogue Ales & Spirits and Iron Chef Morimoto Release Limited-Edition Single Malt Whiskey

Rogue Ales & Spirits and Iron Chef Morimoto Release Limited-Edition Single Malt Whiskey

NEWPORT, OR  (August 4, 2020) Rogue Ales & Spirits and Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto, who have collaborated on various projects since 2003, continue their partnership with the release of a limited-edition Morimoto Single Malt Whiskey.

This limited-edition whiskey started at the Rogue brewery in Newport, Oregon in 2016 as Morimoto Imperial Pilsner and Morimoto Black Obi Ale. After fermentation, the wash was transferred from the Rogue brewery to the distillery to be distilled and barreled in American Oak barrels. The barrels rested in Rogue’s Ocean Aging Room where they absorbed the Pacific Ocean air for over two years before being transferred for finishing in Oregon Oak. The Oregon Oak barrels were built by hand at Rogue’s cooperage, Rolling Thunder Barrel Works, and previously aged Rogue’s award-winning Rolling Thunder Imperial Stout. A year and a half later, the barrels were masterfully blended and smithed to create a unique, bold and limited American Single Malt Whiskey.

This hand-crafted single malt whiskey provides spicy aromas on the nose with subtle smoke and hints of coffee, chocolate, cocoa and dried fruit. On the palate, the prominent soba nut flavor melds with the distinct dark cocoa, toffee, coffee and vanilla provided from the Imperial Stout and subtle smoke from the Rolling Thunder barrels. To complete this bottle, it features a label that was designed by Chef Morimoto himself.
“It has been an honor to work with Chef Morimoto for nearly 20 years to make unique and interesting beers and spirits,” says Dharma Tamm, Rogue President. “This new single malt whiskey is no exception - the combination of Morimoto Signature Imperial Pilsner and Black Obi, Rolling Thunder barrels and distiller selected proof make this something truly special. It has been a labor of love that we’ve spent years making.”
“My relationship with Rogue Ales & Spirits goes back nearly two decades and is the longest partnership of my career,” said Chef Morimoto.  “The Morimoto-branded beers have been guest favorites in my restaurants around the world, and I’m very excited to introduce this very special single malt whiskey to them this year.”
Morimoto Single Malt Whiskey is 85 proof and will be available for sale at Morimoto restaurants, Rogue pubs and retailers around the country. For more information, visit

Johnnie Walker Looks to the Next 200 Years of Scotch: Whisky maker launches four exclusive 200th anniversary releases to celebrate key milestone

Johnnie Walker Looks to the Next 200 Years of Scotch: Whisky maker launches four exclusive 200th anniversary releases to celebrate key milestoneLONDON, July 27, 2020 Today, Johnnie Walker, the world's number one Scotch whisky[1], celebrates a 200-year milestone, and looks to the next 200 years of Scotch, with the announcement of four exclusive limited editions. Each of these 200th anniversary releases - a new bottle design and three newly crafted whiskies - are a celebration of the incredible journey, pioneering spirit and dedication to quality that was started by founder, John Walker, in 1820. 

Diageo Global Scotch Director, John Williams, said: "We wanted to mark our 200-year journey with the launch of these four exclusive limited editions – they're a celebration of where we've come from but, more than that, they are each expressions of what's possible today and into tomorrow, and that's exciting.

"John's spark, vision and entrepreneurial fire were the impetus to growing the John Walker name, our business and ultimately a new future for Scotch whisky. This year we're celebrating the steps he first took - steps that have inspired generations of our whisky makers and are at the heart of everything we do today and will do tomorrow."

Each anniversary release celebrates a unique part of this 200 year journey:

JOHNNIE WALKER BLUE LABEL 200TH ANNIVERSARY LIMITED EDITION DESIGN

This new limited edition design features stunning illustrations that bring to life the 200-year journey of John Walker & Sons and Johnnie Walker, paying homage to some of the great cities and countries that have been part of this inspiring story since 1820.

JOHNNIE WALKER BLUE LABEL LEGENDARY EIGHT

This exclusive release celebrates 200 years of craft. It is a smooth, mellow Scotch crafted using whisky hand selected from only eight legendary distilleries that all existed in 1820, including some very rare expressions from long-closed "ghost" distilleries. 

JOHN WALKER & SONS CELEBRATORY BLEND

This limited edition release is inspired by a breakthrough moment in John Walker & Sons' history - the launch of Old Highland Whisky in the 1860s. This rich and complex Scotch is inspired by the flavours found in the Walker family's grocery store during that period and is crafted with whiskies from distilleries operating at the time.

JOHN WALKER & SONS BICENTENARY BLEND

This exceptional whisky is a sensorial journey down the fragrant aisles of John Walker's original grocery store in Scotland with rich layers that re-imagine the exotic flavours that shaped John Walker's imagination. It is crafted with rare and exceptional whiskies, all aged for at least 28 years, including whiskies from long-closed "ghost" distilleries such as Pittyvaich, Cambus and soon to be re-opened Port Ellen.

Johnnie Walker Master Blender, Jim Beveridge, said: "Each of these exclusive releases bring a fresh perspective to our 200th anniversary story and are the perfect way to celebrate this moment for Johnnie Walker. It feels very apt to be announcing them this week to coincide with John Walker's birthday[2]."

The launch of these 200th anniversary releases follows the announcement of a £185 million investment[3] in Scotch tourism from parent company, Diageo, with a host of new multi-sensory, immersive whisky experiences across Scotland and their most recent announcement of a new paper-based bottle launching with Johnnie Walker in 2021[4], a world-first in the drinks industry, to spearhead a more sustainable future for Scotch as the brand looks to the next 200 years.

All four exclusive releases will launch from October onwards, subject to market distribution and availability, for a limited period only.*

The Texas Whiskey Festival and Ranger Creek Brewing and Distilling Release a Cider Cask Finished Rye Whiskey

The Texas Whiskey Festival and Ranger Creek Brewing and Distilling Release a Cider Cask Finished Rye WhiskeyThe Texas Whiskey Festival and Ranger Creek announce the release of a collaboration whiskey, the first in the Tejas series.

Tejas, the Spanish spelling of the ancient Caddo word for “friend” or “ally” is a collaboration between the festival and various Texas distillers to create unique offerings that showcase their methods and character. Each bottling will be a limited release available only through the respective distiller.

The first in the Tejas series is a bottling by Ranger Creek Distillery. Their rye whiskey spent two and a half years in bourbon barrels before being finished in a barrel provided by Austin Eastciders. Over the six-month finishing process, the spirit and the barrel became acquainted to produce a whiskey rich with floral, baked apple, and cinnamon aromas, with touches of honey, baked red apple, and a hint of bitter apple flavors to become "Tejas.”

“This is a truly unique release that I hope people enjoy tasting it as much as we did making it,” said Josh Gardner, head distiller at Ranger Creek.

The bottling totaled just 258 – 750ml bottles. It will be available on July 20 exclusively through Ranger Creek’s tasting room. “The ability to collaborate showcases the camaraderie and experimentation the Texas Whiskey Industry is all about,” said Ranger Creek Co-Founder Dennis Rylander.

Tejas came to embody the character of the weathered and resilient settlers who saw the wide-open west as their destiny. This series pays homage to their intrepid resolve by bringing together our favorite Texas distilleries in a spirit of friendship that exemplifies the pride we take in proclaiming, “We are Tejas!”

“As a huge fan of their rye whiskey, this has been an amazing experience,” said Texas Whiskey Festival Co-Founder Jake Clements. “I’m excited to share this collaboration with everyone.”
