Cascade Blonde American Whiskey™ Splashes Down In TX And MI As A Perfect Daytime Summer Sipper

Cascade Blonde American Whiskey™ Splashes Down In TX And MI As A Perfect Daytime Summer SipperTULLAHOMA, Tenn., May 17, 2018- This May, Cascade Blonde American Whiskey is splashing down in Texas and Michigan to introduce lake lovers and dock dwellers to their new favorite daytime summer sipper. Cascade Blonde American Whiskey is a new style of blonde American whiskey that's incredibly smooth, lighter in color and easier to drink than floating downstream.

Cascade Blonde American Whiskey™ Splashes Down In TX And MI As A Perfect Daytime Summer Sipper

Cascade Blonde is made using a double chill filtration process, high-corn mash bill and limestone filtered water fresh from Cascade Spring in Tullahoma, Tenn., to give it a smooth-drinking profile. Highlighted by a crisp fruit taste and creamy notes of vanilla, Cascade Blonde complements simple, delicious drinks like the signature Cascade Crush (Cascade Blonde American Whiskey + lemonade + orange wedge) that's perfect for sipping slowly and safely.

This summer Cascade Blonde is teaming up with American Rivers, the leading river conservation organization in the nation, to help preserve America's rivers and lakes because fresh spring water is at the core of how Cascade Blonde is made. Throughout the summer, American Rivers will host waterway cleanup events to support their mission to protect, restore and conserve nature's greatest resource, because without pure water, great whiskey isn't possible.

"We're excited about teaming up with Cascade Blonde because they understand the importance of fresh water. It's what they use to finish to their whiskey and is core to our shared values," said Amy Kober, National Communications Director for American Rivers. "Pairing their passion with our commitment and expertise will have a positive, lasting impact for rivers nationwide."

In Michigan, look for Cascade Blonde at summertime festivals in Traverse City and at Electric Forest Music Festival in Rothbury, MI on June 21-24 and June 28-July 1. Cascade Blonde will be hanging out with friends Joshua Guiles and Great Lakes Locals throughout the summer along with Michigan native and Warner Music Nashville recording artist Frankie Ballard, who knows a thing or two about "Sunshine and Whiskey." In Austin, Texas, look for Cascade Blonde alongside friends Haley Plotkin and Chelsea Bancroft at Float Fest on July 21-22.

With a suggested retail price of $19.99/750ml and carrying 80 proof (40% ABV), Cascade Blonde's one-of-a-kind packaging marries the nostalgia of simpler times with a fun, modern take on whiskey. The Fish Out of Water icon embodies the essence of the brand, and the bottle's cork can be transformed into a fishing bobber with a few quick moves. The shape of the bottle itself is inspired by the buoys of America's waterways that help keep boat captains safe and on track. Likewise, it's important to remind all current and future friends to enjoy Cascade Blonde similarly, and always remember to day-sip responsibly.

About Cascade Blonde American Whiskey

Cascade Blonde American Whiskey will burst onto the scene in Texas and Michigan in 2018 as America's soon-to-be favorite day-sipper. Finished with pure water straight from Cascade Springs in Tullahoma, Tenn., Cascade Blonde is a new style of blonde American whiskey that's lighter in color, exceptionally smooth and easier to drink than floating downstream. The flavor profile of Cascade Blonde complements simple, delicious drinks like the Cascade Crush (Cascade Blonde American Whiskey + lemonade + an orange slice). For more information on our whiskey, our commitment to protecting America's waterways, and to find out where Cascade Blonde will be splashing down next, please visit www.cascadeblonde.com, and always remember to day-sip responsibly.

Smooth Ambler Spirits Releases Long Awaited Wheated Bourbon, "Big Level"

Smooth Ambler Spirits Releases Long Awaited Wheated Bourbon, "Big Level"MAXWELTON, W.Va., May 14, 2018 "Big Level" Wheated Bourbon is at long last ready for release and will be appearing across the US over the coming month.

Bottled at 100 proof and made from a mash of corn, wheat, and malted barley, Big Level Bourbon has been painstakingly made by Smooth Ambler and patiently aged in 53 gallon barrels, resting in and benefitting from the West Virginia mountains and their perfect cadence of seasons.

"Much of what we've done at Smooth Ambler has been leading up to this moment," says Head Distiller and CEO John Little. "The release of Big Level signifies the beginning of our long-term ability to offer a third, important category of whiskeys to us: those which are 100% made here in West Virginia. We're excited for this whiskey to complement the merchant bottled and "married" (merchant and homemade blended together) families already embraced by our business."

Founded in 2009, Smooth Ambler has steadily grown to become a leader in the small production of quality, classic whiskey. Winning Best Single Barrel Bourbon in the World for 2016 at the World Whiskies Awards, Smooth Ambler partnered with Pernod Ricard the following year, and continues to produce whiskey in what it refers to as its "Make, Merchant, and Marry" approach, sourcing whiskey in-tandem with its homemade distillate and in the case of award-winning Contradiction Bourbon, making a union of the two.

"Waiting on whiskey is like waiting on a friend to pick you up and take you to a concert," jokes Director of Sales, John Foster. "You know your friend is on the way. And you know the show is happening. But your buddy has the tickets and is your ride, and you can't go anywhere or do anything until they show up."

After completing its distillery expansion this winter, Smooth Ambler spirits is poised to produce 3,000 barrels of whiskey in 2018, and plans to constantly source quality whiskey as it becomes available.

George Dickel Tennessee Whisky Releases New TABASCO® Brand Barrel Finish - A Partnership Made In The South

George Dickel Tennessee Whisky Releases New TABASCO® Brand Barrel Finish - A Partnership Made In The SouthTULLAHOMA, Tenn., May 10, 2018  For more than a century, both George Dickel Tennessee Whisky and McIlhenny Company's TABASCO® Brand Pepper Sauce, have celebrated their Louisiana and Tennessee roots and legacy of craftsmanship. Now, with George Dickel TABASCO Brand Barrel Finish available in stores this May, these two iconic brands are coming together in one bottle.

Finished in barrels used to age tabasco peppers for three years, George Dickel TABASCO Brand Barrel Finish has a deliciously spicy flavor. George Dickel takes its Tennesseewhisky and rests it in these barrels for 30 days, allowing the spice and flavor imparted on the wood from the tabasco peppers to add its unique finish. TABASCO Brand Pepper Sauce is then distilled to create an essence, which is carefully blended together with the whisky to create George Dickel TABASCO Brand Barrel Finish. The result is a deliciously spicy shot, which recently won a Gold Medal at the 2018 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

"George Dickel Tennessee Whisky and TABASCO are two of the most iconic brands the South has to offer for a reason – the craftsmanship that goes into creating these products is the real deal," said Jeff Parrott, Director of American Whisk(e)y Development at Diageo. "Both brands have such a rich history, and we're proud to collaborate with our friends at McIlhenny Company to marry their unique flavor with our quality Tennessee whisky."

With summer right around the corner, the release of George Dickel TABASCO Brand Barrel Finish signals the return of longer days, livelier nights and good times. For consumers looking for the perfect mix of fun and flavor, it can be enjoyed as a shot with celery salt on the rim, or with pickle juice or an ice chaser.  Whether enjoyed at your local barbeque spot or backyard party, a shot of Hot Dickel provides a peppery kick, but goes down with a smooth finish.

Hitting shelves nationwide in May, George Dickel TABASCO Brand Barrel Finish carries a suggested retail price of $24.99for a 750 mL bottle and is also available in 50 mL and 1L sizes. The alcohol by volume is 35% (70 proof). Like the rest of George Dickel Tennessee Whisky brand's offerings, this shot is meant to be enjoyed responsibly.

About George Dickel Tennessee Whisky

Back in the late 1800's, George Dickel worked to fulfill his dream for crafting the smoothest Tennessee Whisky around.  Over a century later, we continue to honor George's timeless values and tradition.   Legend has it that early on George discovered that whisky made in the cold winter months tasted smoother.  Today we honor this tradition by chilling our whisky before filtering it through sugar-maple charcoal so it's mellow as moonlight just how George liked.  For more information, please visit www.GeorgeDickel.com and always remember to drink responsibly.

MGP Ingredients Launches Rossville Union Master Crafted Straight Rye Whiskey, Adding to the Company's Branded PortfolioLAWRENCEBURG, Ind., May 9, 2018 MGP Ingredients is proud to announce the launch of Rossville Union, their first proprietary Rye Whiskey label. Named after the founding distillery in Lawrenceburg, Rossville Union represents a historic return to the home of crafted rye whiskey and honors a spirited tradition that dates back more than 170 years in America's original "Whiskey City." Known as the "Masters of Rye," the expert distillery team in Lawrenceburg brings generations of craftsmanship, heritage and passion to the making of the highest quality rye whiskey.

"With Rossville Union we deliver two unique, perfectly-balanced rye whiskeys that shows our distilling and blending expertise and character – at its boldest," says Andrew Mansinne, Vice President of Brands, MGP Ingredients. "Rossville Union is crafted in the heart of rye whiskey country, in one of the most storied distilleries in the nation that has been in continuous production for almost two centuries."

Rossville Union is available in two expressions: Rossville Union Master Crafted Straight Rye Whiskey and Rossville Union Master Crafted Barrel Proof Straight Rye Whiskey. In keeping with the historic legacy of the brand, the bottle design is a flask shape molded in an apothecary style with the Rossville Union name and "1847" distillery-of-origin date embossed into the glass. Both products are expertly blended from the extensive barrel reserves at MGP Ingredients, a distinction which is cited on the label with the number of "barrels used" in each release, notably 159 for Master Crafted and 83 barrels for Barrel Proof.

Rossville Union Master Crafted Straight Rye Whiskey offers a balance of sweet oak with rye spice. Aged at least four years, this crafted rye delivers a sweet caramel nose, a fruit forward palate and a smoky, spicy body that finishes clean. At 94 proof, Rossville Union Master Crafted is perfect on the rocks or in cocktails. The singular craftsmanship of the Masters of Rye takes centerstage with Rossville Union Master Crafted Barrel Proof Straight Rye Whiskey. Drawn from 83 of the distillery's finest barrel reserves, Barrel Proof over-delivers with a spicy, vanilla nose, wood and caramel notes, and an exceptionally balanced oak and spice finish. Boldly bottled at 112.6 proof, Rossville Union Barrel Proof is a full, but balanced cask-strength rye whiskey experience, crafted to enjoy neat, on the rocks or with a splash of water.

WhistlePig Releases FarmStock Rye Crop No. 002 Whiskey

WhistlePig Releases FarmStock Rye Crop No. 002 WhiskeySHOREHAM, Vermont., May 8, 2018- Today, WhistlePig Rye Whiskey announces the release of FarmStock Rye Crop No. 002, the second blend of their limited edition annual FarmStock estate release that originally debuted in 2017. It is the latest of WhistlePig's products showing farm-based innovation and the next step in achieving WhistlePig FarmStock's 100% Triple Terroir™ vision – whiskey made from rye grown on their farm, proofed with water from their well, and aged in Vermont oak barrels made from wood harvested from their farm and the surrounding area.

Rye Crop 002 begins with WhistlePig's two-year aged whiskey, made from rye grown on the farm. The whiskey is aged in Vermont oak barrels made from locally harvested trees that feature a truly unique char and toast designed by Master Distiller Dave Pickerell. The estate whiskey is then balanced with 6 and 10 year old Ryes from their special reserves to marry the wildness of youth with the richness of age. The final No. 002 blend increases FarmStock's Triple Terroir expression by 12%, bringing it to 32% in total.

"With the original Rye Crop 001, our goal was simple: we wanted to bring you a whiskey that showcased the quality of our young distillate, while remaining balanced and finessed through the careful selection of casks in the blending process," explains Pete Lynch, Chief Blender at WhistlePig. "Now with Crop 002, we took an even bigger approach, with the flavors from two year old WhistlePig front and center. The whiskey drinks like an old friend with an undeniable maturity."

Promoting Inclusion and transparency in the North American whiskey category, the FarmStock Rye Crop 002 blend was crowdsourced from over 500 bartenders, influencers and consumers at blending events taking place at the WhistlePig farm and across the United States over the last 6 months.

"By boosting the percentage of WhistlePig two year old distillate from 20% to 32%, as well as changing up the other component whiskies in the blend, we're looking at a whiskey that drinks even easier than 001 did. 002 takes well to ice and cocktails, and hits you with a big burst of vanilla, citrus, and rye spice," says Master Distiller Dave Pickerell. "We also get a beautiful balance with some of the fruitier and more oak-like flavors from the more mature component whiskies."

FarmStock Rye Crop No. 002 is composed of 32% two year aged Triple Terroir™ whiskey made on the WhistlePig farm, 45% 6-year aged whiskey from MGPI in Indiana, and 23% 10-year aged whiskey from Alberta Distillers in Canada. Showing dedication to transparency, the back label clearly outlines the three whiskey's involved in the blend. This year's limited release is hand bottled at 86 proof, and the suggested retail price is $72.99.

Flavor Profile of FarmStock

Nose: Orange zest, white chocolate, vanilla bean, and fresh pear combine with a gentle rye spice

Palate: Delicate fruitiness gives way to a full bodied burst of spice, rounded by notes of allspice and cinnamon and balanced with a pleasant dryness

Finish: White pepper and oak spice leave a light and surprisingly lengthy finish

ABOUT WHISTLEPIG
Founded in 2008, WhistlePig is the premier aged Rye Whiskey, featuring the bold and often untapped flavor of rye. WhistlePig is leading a surge of innovation in the emerging field of North American whiskey. As the most decorated Rye Whiskey – having received the coveted 'Best In Show Whiskey' title from the 2017 San Francisco World Spirits Competition-- WhistlePig is widely viewed as the world's finest Rye.

Experience the interactive Multichannel News Release here: https://www.multivu.com/players/English/8309051-bulleit-whiskey-frontier-works-bottle-impressions/

For its latest Frontier Works collaboration, Bulleit has partnered with local artists in communities around the country to create Bulleit Bottle Impressions. Whether charcoal, paint or chocolate, artists create their pieces by laying paper on top of the Bulleit bottle and using their medium of choice to create an impression by pressing down on the bottle's raised lettering.

As part of its partnership with Frieze Art Fair, Bulleit is now inviting adult visitors at Frieze New York to join in the project by tagging photos of their own Impressions artwork on Instagram using #FrontierWorks. Festival attendees will also have the opportunity to create their own Impression in the Bulleit Whiskey Lounge at Randall's Island Park May 3-6.  Select consumer-submitted Impressions using #FrontierWorks will be featured as part of the Bulleit Frontier Works: Bottle Impression project later this summer.

"Bulleit is a whiskey living on the edge of culture, making an impact by uniting the imaginations of frontiersmen and women who challenge the status quo every day," said Ed Bello, US & Global Brand Director for Bulleit Frontier Whiskey. "Bulleit Frontier Works: Bottle Impressions celebrates and brings to life the frontier spirit of artistic expression in all of us."

To further celebrate these collaborations, Bulleit worked with local artists across the country to transform their Impressions into unique works of art. Contributors to-date include: Christina Mrozik and Zach Johnsen whose artwork debuted at Soul'd Out in Portland and Ryan Duggan and CHema Skandal! whose artwork was launched at One of Kind Festival in Chicago. Taylor McKimens and Tara McPherson's artwork is currently displayed throughout New York and will be showcased at Frieze New York.

Bulleit is also proud to honor emerging galleries and their artists via the 2018 Frieze Frame Stand Prize. The respected honor features some of the world's most innovative galleries eight years old and under, and includes today's most relevant and exciting artists. The deserving recipient will be granted $10,000, courtesy of Bulleit, to further their discipline and continue to create art on the cultural frontier. The winner will be selected by a leading jury of emerging art experts, including Courtenay Finn (Curator, Aspen Art Museum), Elena Filipovic (Director and Curator, Kunsthalle Basel), and Jamillah James (Curator, Institute of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles). The Frame Prize will be announced on Thursday, May 3.

"This Bulleit Frontier Works project left a lasting impression on me," said artist and actor Aldis Hodge. "This campaign brings out the artist in all of us and is an inspiring celebration of self-expression."

Bulleit Frontier Works: Bottle Impressions follows on the heels of previous Bulleit Frontier Works programs, TATTOO and NEON. For more information on Bulleit Frontier Works, follow Bulleit on Instagram @Bulleit and check out the hashtag #FrontierWorks.

About Bulleit Frontier Whiskey

The Bulleit Distilling Co. was founded in 1987 by Tom Bulleit, whose Bulleit Bourbon is inspired by a family tradition. Bulleit Rye, a straight rye whiskey, was added to the portfolio in 2011 to critical acclaim, and the brand's third variant, Bulleit Bourbon 10-Year-Old, was introduced in 2013. The most recent addition to the Bulleit portfolio, Bulleit Barrel Strength, was awarded Double Gold and Best Straight Bourbon at the 2018 San Francisco Spirits Competition. Bulleit whiskeys use a higher proportion of rye grain, which gives them their distinctive bold, spicy taste. Bulleit ranks as one of the fastest-growing whiskeys in America, which Tom largely credits to word of mouth recommendations. In 2014, Bulleit broke ground on a new $115 million distillery located in Shelbyville, Ky. Guests are invited to learn more about the past, present and future of Bulleit by visiting the Bulleit Frontier Whiskey Experience at Stitzel-Weller in Louisville, KY., a member of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail® tour.

Heaven's Door Spirits To Release Collection Of American Whiskeys Developed In Collaboration With Bob Dylan And Renowned Craft Distillers

Heaven's Door Spirits To Release Collection Of American Whiskeys Developed In Collaboration With Bob Dylan And Renowned Craft DistillersNASHVILLE, Tenn., April 30, 2018  Today, Spirits Investment Partnership ("SIP"), in partnership with Bob Dylan, announces the debut of Heaven's Door, a collection of super-premium craft American Whiskeys. Bob Dylan's first and only brand partnership, Heaven's Door will be an ever-evolving portfolio of handcrafted whiskeys in collaboration with different master distillers and blenders from across the country.

The genesis of Heaven's Door came when spirits entrepreneur Marc Bushala, CEO of SIP, read that Bob Dylan had registered a trademark application for "Bootleg Whiskey" in 2015. Bushala embarked on a mission to connect with the artist and explore ideas.

Through a mutual friend, a meeting between the two was arranged. Together, they developed the idea of creating a whiskey collection that would be the perfect blend of art and craft, incorporating Bob Dylan's artwork in the packaging.

"Rather than make a single whiskey or work with one master distiller, we thought it would be far more interesting to work with various master distillers and blenders to make whiskeys that would each have their own unique signature," Bushala explains, "By working with different whiskey artisans for each new expression, the portfolio would be more diverse and eclectic."

"We both wanted to create a collection of American whiskeys that, in their own way, tell a story," says Bob Dylan.  "I've been traveling for decades, and I've been able to try some of the best spirits that the world of whiskey has to offer. This is great whiskey. I am happy to be partnering with Marc and our entire team as we bring Heaven's Door to the public."

After years and countless iterations of blending and finishing, Heaven's Door arrived at its first three expressions. The trilogy includes a Straight Tennessee Bourbon, a Double Barrel Whiskey, and a Straight Rye Whiskey finished in "Cigar" Barrels from Vosges, France.

"The whiskeys had to be unique, uncompromising in quality and center stage," says Ryan Perry, who leads whiskey development for Heaven's Door. "We weren't restricted by deadlines, budget or a particular taste profile. Working with master distillers like Jordan Via enabled us to establish creative collaboration as a foundational principle of the brand."

Heaven's Door bottles feature Bob Dylan's distinctive iron gates that he created in his studio, Black Buffalo Ironworks, from objects found on farms and scrapyards across America. Complementing the mainstay portfolio, next year Heaven's Door will introduce The Bootleg Series, showcasing Bob Dylan's paintings on proprietary bottles. The Bootleg Series will offer rare whiskey stocks and special blends, available in very limited quantities.

In 2019, Heaven's Door will open its distillery and brand experience center in a 140-year-old church in Nashville. Dylan recorded four albums and made lasting impact on the Music City.

The inaugural Heaven's Door expressions are described as:

  • TENNESSEE STRAIGHT BOURBON - A unique mash bill from Tennessee, the Heaven's Door Tennessee Bourbon utilizes 30% "small grains" to complement the character imparted from spending almost seven years in new American Oak barrels.
  • DOUBLE BARREL WHISKEY FROM TENNESSEE - Comprised of a distinctive blend of three different whiskeys, the Heaven's Door Double Barrel finishing process utilizes hand toasted, new American Oak barrels for a secondary aging worthy of another year's wait.
  • STRAIGHT RYE WHISKEY - Breaking with convention, Heaven's Door finishes its Straight Rye Whiskey in toasted oak cigar barrels, harvested and air-dried in the low-lying mountain region of Vosges, France.

Each of these expressions has already been submitted to two of the most respected spirit competitions for early reviews—the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and The Ultimate Spirits Challenge. Those results are in:

San Francisco World Spirits Competition:

  • Tennessee Straight Bourbon: Gold Medal
  • Double Barrel Whiskey from Tennessee: Double Gold Medal
  • Straight Rye Whiskey: Gold Medal

Ultimate Spirits Challenge:

  • Tennessee Straight Bourbon: 96- Extraordinary, Ultimate Recommendation and recipient of the 2018 Chairman Trophy Finalist Award
  • Double Barrel Whiskey from Tennessee: 93- Excellent, Highly Recommended and tied for 1st Place Finish in American Whiskey category
  • Straight Rye Whiskey: 94- Excellent, Highly Recommended and recipient of the 2018 Chairman Trophy Finalist Award

In addition to these prestigious accolades, several of the most respected, industry-leading whiskey experts in the country have also tasted Heaven's Door pre-release, including one of America's foremost spirits authorities, cocktail historian & author, David Wondrich, as well as Heather Greene, spirits expert and author of Whiskey Distilled. Both have praised the brand's debut collection and are eager to see what the future holds.

"The Heaven's Door range manages to deliver distinct personalities across its three inaugural releases, something I've found many new whiskey producers struggle to achieve," says Heather Greene. "I look forward to using Heaven's Door to excite whiskey drinkers on how just a few ingredients can create such a wide array of flavors when put into qualified and skillful hands. There is clear intent, passion, and talent behind the making of this fun new brand."

Heaven's Door is available nationally online for pre-orders at: www.HeavensDoor.com and will be available on shelves mid-May in Tennessee, Texas, California, Florida, New York and Illinois (with more markets to come soon). The suggested retail price range is $49.99- $79.99.

About Bob Dylan:
Bob Dylan is generally regarded as one of the world's most influential and groundbreaking artists. In the decades since he first burst into the public's consciousness via New York City's Greenwich Village folk music scene in the early 1960s, Bob Dylan has sold more than 125 million records and amassed a singular body of work that includes some of the greatest and most popular songs the world has ever known.  He continues to traverse the globe each year, performing more than 100 concerts annually in front of audiences who embrace his new material with the same passion as his classic output.  In recent years, his work as an author and visual artist has further burnished his popularity and acclaim; a worldwide best-selling memoir, Chronicles Vol. 1, spent 19 weeks on the New York Times Best Seller List, in 2004, and several major exhibitions of his paintings and iron gates have been shown in recent years at some of the world's most prestigious museums and galleries.

Bob Dylan's contributions to our culture have been recognized with numerous honors and accolades.  In December 2016, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature by the Swedish Academy "for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition."  In 2012, he was awarded America's highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, by President Barak Obama. In addition to winning 11 Grammy Awards, Dylan has achieved six entries in the Grammy Hall of Fame, which honors recordings of "qualitative or historical significance" at least 25 years old.  Bob Dylan recently released his 38th studio album, a triple-album set aptly titled, Triplicate.
