James Bond & Jon Buscemi Launch Wolves "Winter Run"

James Bond & Jon Buscemi Launch Wolves "Winter Run"LOS ANGELES, Nov. 21, 2019 After selling out of their initial release in days, James Bond (Undefeated), Jon Buscemi (Buscemi,Truff, Oliver Peoples), and their partners are back with their second limited, online-only, whiskey release titled "Winter Run."  1338 bottles of Wolves' Winter Run will be available first to those on the Allocation List at WolvesWhiskeyCA.com, and second to the general public at 12 a.m. EST on November 21, 2019 at the same site.

Winter Run contains (1) whiskey distilled from craft Stout beer, aged in French Oak for 8 years, (2) whiskey distilled from craft Pilsner beer, aged in New American Oak for 5 years, (3) a Rye selected for its spice, and (4) a single malt whiskey aged for 9 years in used French Oak. The flavors hint at Wolves' critically acclaimed First Run, exuding the hoppiness, chocolate, and citrus notes that it's forerunner became known for.  This blend brings more oak, toasted almonds, and orange marmalade to the palate. The nose is slightly sweet, delivering honeysuckle, cherry cola, and warm vanilla.

With the exception of the Rye, the whiskeys in the blend were distilled by 13th generation Master Distiller Marko Karakasevic in northern California using a rare copper Alambic pot still imported from Cognac, France in 1983.

"We wanted to run it back again with Marko, who is a generational artisan working with a tried and true still.  The still is old and slow but the result is better.  We took some cues from First Run while incorporating a really earthy single malt  - I like single malts all year round but enjoy them most in the colder months.  It took a lot of work to get this right, but the result is special and I'm happy we were able to crank out a few more bottles this time in production."

Marko lives by the same code and compass that James and Jon abide, with quality and authenticity as their north star.  Each small, bespoke batch of distillate is created by Marko over a near-sleepless 10-day period to ensure the heads and tails are cut out properly, and that only the hearts remain for barrel aging.  It's a lonely and exhausting process, but the result is better whiskey.

The Alambic still from Cognac creates massive body that you cannot easily find in whiskey made from a more efficient column still. And because the Stout and Pilsner whiskies are distilled from finished craft beer, the hoppy flavors are pronounced and the nose is slightly sweet. The team landed at 104 proof for this edition.

"Our group comes from apparel and music background, our concept to do multiple drops like you would a fashion /shoe brand or new music was to always keep it fresh and exciting. Continue to add to the catalog, and in theory when you collect all the drops you get a piece of our story," added James Bond.

Built to live as authentic as the whiskey itself, each bottle of Winter Run is wrapped by hand in a chocolate espresso Italian sheepskin leather, which is laser cut, embossed, printed with UV light, and laid flush to the glass by hand. The bottle is heavy and French-cut, while the cork top is made of Maple wood. Each bottle is delivered in a canvas sleeve that was stitched by hand and designed to fit Winter Run like a glove.

Wolves produced 1,338 bottles of "Winter Run." On November 21, 2019, they will be available for purchase on a first-come first-served basis at WolvesWhiskeyCA.com with free shipping.  An allocation of bottles will also be available at Flaviar.com.  MSRP $185.

Just like any holiday indulgence, moderation is the way to go when enjoying Captain Morgan Gingerbread Spiced.

Captain Morgan is doubling down on the sweet treats for the holiday season by partnering with Big Gay Ice Cream to celebrate the release of Captain Morgan Gingerbread Spiced. A Captain Morgan Gingerbread Spiced 'Merry Morgan' Trucker – Big Gay Ice Cream's unique name for an ice cream sandwich – will be available for free to those 21+ visiting Big Gay Ice Cream's New York and Philadelphia locations. The ice cream in the sandwich will be infused with the flavor of Captain Morgan Gingerbread Spiced. The Captain Morgan Gingerbread Spiced 'Merry Morgan' Truckers will be available each Thursday from November 21st through December 26th after 5:00pm EST*.

"The holidays are the time of the year we all gather for a good time with friends and family, and Captain Morgan Gingerbread Spiced captures a really special flavor that adds a little seasonal fun to those get-togethers," said Christina Choi, DIAGEO Senior Vice President, Rum, Gin & Tequila. "Big Gay Ice Cream is such an iconic shop that stands for inclusive fun, and we're so happy to be partnering with them.

Michter's to Release Its Celebration Sour Mash Whiskey for the First Time in Three Years

Michter's to Release Its Celebration Sour Mash Whiskey for the First Time in Three YearsLOUISVILLE, Ky., Nov. 19, 2019 After a three-year hiatus, Michter's Celebration Sour Mash Whiskey will be released again in December 2019. This year's release of Michter's Celebration is a blend of whiskey taken from six carefully selected barrels. "Working on my first Celebration release was a labor of love for me. Ultimately, I chose to take whiskey from two Kentucky straight bourbon barrels and four Kentucky straight rye barrels in our stocks. Each Celebration release is special and unique, and this year's release differs from the 2016 one, where the whiskey came from three bourbon barrels and three rye barrels," said Michter's Master Distiller Dan McKee.

Tremendous attention is given to finding the perfect barrels for Michter's Celebration. Michter's Master of Maturation Andrea Wilson observed, "It's not just a question of finding this great barrel and putting it with that great barrel. It's a matter of selecting fantastic barrels that go together so well that the whole will be greater than the sum of the parts. The whiskeys in the 2019 release range in age from over a decade to over 30 years old."

When Michter's Celebration Sour Mash Whiskey was released in 2013, it marked a significant moment in United States whiskey history. For the first time, an American whiskey company was offering a rare blend for a suggested retail price of several thousand dollars. "At Michter's we had the thought that great whiskey made in the U.S. was a worthy rival for the very finest spirits from other parts of the world, so we came out with the first release of Michter's Celebration Sour Mash Whiskey," remarked Michter's President Joseph J. Magliocco.

Only 277 bottles of the 2019 Edition of Michter's Celebration will be released worldwide. It is 115.6 proof / 57.8% alcohol by volume and will have a suggested retail price of $5,000 in the United States.

Louisville-based Michter's has a rich and long legacy of offering traditional American whiskeys of uncompromising quality. With each of its limited production offerings aged to peak maturity, Michter's highly acclaimed portfolio includes bourbon, rye, and American whiskey.

DEWAR'S® Earns Top Industry Recognitions In 2019

DEWAR'S® Earns Top Industry Recognitions In 2019With a series of brand innovations, portfolio accolades, and Stephanie Macleod named Master Blender of the Year, the brand solidifies its position as most awarded blended scotch whisky in the world

HAMILTON, Bermuda, Nov. 19, 2019 DEWAR'S® Scotch Whisky announces Stephanie Macleod has been awarded Master Blender of the Year, among various awards for its blended whisky range, by the 2019 International Whisky Competition (IWC) – the annual whisk(e)y tournament rated by an expert panel including whisky author Sébastien Gavillet and world-renowned mixologist Francesco Lafranconi. Macleod's title award arrives during an exceptional competition year for the DEWAR'S blended scotch range, further establishing the brand's commitment to premium scotch and reinforcing its reputation as the most awarded blended scotch whisky in the world.

Making history as the first woman to receive Master Blender of the Year by the IWC, Macleod's ground-breaking work includes assembling the new premium blended scotch series DEWAR'S Double Double – an homage to the brand's signature double-aging process utilized across the entire portfolio and innovating to create a landmark four-step ageing method or 'double-double-ageing'. One of the new expressions in the series, DEWAR'S Double Double 32-Year-Old, took first place as 'Best Blended Scotch Whisky over 20 Years Old' at the competition, where honors by medal were also awarded to DEWAR'S including:

  • DEWAR'S Double Double 32-Year-Old – Gold; First Place 'Best Blended Scotch Whisky over 20 Years Old'
  • DEWAR'S 25-Year-Old – Gold; Second Place 'Best Blended Scotch Whisky over 20 Years Old'
  • DEWAR'S 18-Year-Old – Silver; Third Place 'Best Blended Scotch Whisky over 18 Years Old'
  • DEWAR'S 15-Year-Old – Silver; First Place 'Best Blended Scotch Whisky over 15 Years Old'
  • DEWAR'S Double Double 21-Year-Old – Silver
  • DEWAR'S Double Double 27-Year-Old – Bronze; Third Place 'Best Blended Scotch Whisky over 20 Years Old'
  • DEWAR'S 12-Year-Old – Bronze
  • DEWAR'S White Label – Bronze

"At DEWAR'S we are focused on opportunities to not only contemporize our heritage and credentials, but also stretch the brand out of traditional scotch territories with new expressions that exceed expectations," notes Brian Cox, Vice President DEWAR'S Scotch Whisky North America. "To this end, we are privileged to have Stephanie and welcome her recognition. Her over 20-year career at DEWAR's has served as foundation to many of our award-winning blends and brand innovations that continue to cement DEWAR'S as a leader in the category."

"It is an honour to be named Master Blender of the Year and I am delighted to accept this award on behalf of our entire team who contributes to making DEWAR'S," awardee Stephanie Macleod says. "It is rewarding indeed to know our efforts are met with such appreciation, and I look forward to continuing the momentum with new and innovative ways to reach our trade and consumer communities."

In addition to launching the DEWAR'S Double Double series this year, the brand introduced DEWAR's Caribbean Smooth 8-Year-Old Rum Cask Finish Blended Scotch Whisky – the first blend in a new series of innovative cask finishes being released over the next few years with Macleod at the helm. DEWAR'S and Macleod have also recently pioneered new channels of consumer engagement, leading the first-ever livestream scotch tasting in partnership with Amazon UK and Germany.

ABOUT DEWAR'S SCOTCH WHISKY
Founded in 1846 by John Dewar, DEWAR'S has grown from a small wine and spirits merchant shop in Scotland, to one of the largest Scotch whisky brands in the world.  Best known for its iconic DEWAR'S White Label, it has expanded its family to create a portfolio of premium and super premium whiskies including DEWAR'S 12 Year Old, DEWAR'S 15 Year Old, DEWAR'S 18 Year Old, the exclusive DEWAR'S Signature and most recently DEWAR'S Scratched Cask. These whiskies are crafted using the DEWAR'S oak marrying ageing process. Pioneered by DEWAR'S in 1899, it involves returning the hand-crafted blend to vintage oak casks for further maturation. The result is a smoother taste with a long, lingering finish; a taste that wins medals and applause, making DEWAR'S the world's most awarded blended Scotch. The DEWAR'S® brand is part of the portfolio of Bacardi Limited, headquartered in Hamilton, Bermuda. Bacardi Limited refers to the Bacardi group of companies, including Bacardi International Limited.  www.Dewars.com

Kavalan's Latest Bottle Features a Studded Crown Fit For a King

Kavalan's Latest Bottle Features a Studded Crown Fit For a KingTAIPEI, Nov. 11, 2019It's an evolution of a company and an ambitious journey from household products, orchids, and rural childhood education through to coffee, beer, and whisky, and this year, even restaurants and bars.

And it's this story that's now encapsulated in a new 1500ml Kavalan whisky, the "King Car Group 40th Anniversary" single malt, to mark the landmark anniversary of Kavalan's parent company.

Already launched in Taiwan, Kavalan's newest special edition - which elegantly combines the creamy richness of toffee with the intense sweetness of dark fruit notes - will be available in select countries globally in 2020.

Kavalan is unable to reveal the exact cask that this extraordinary, flavourful whisky has been aged in, other than to say it's a highly exclusive red wine cask of world-class standing.

CEO, Mr YT Lee, said like the only other whisky to be launched in the group's name, the "King Car Conductor," the 40th Anniversary Limited Edition was fittingly multidimensional, complex and full of depth.

"I am honoured to be part of the journey first begun by my father four decades ago. King Car has always strived hard to deliver the finest quality - a pursuit that defines our character - and this insistence on excellence will continue into the future," Mr YT Lee said.

Master Blender, Ian Chang, said he had made a whisky to celebrate a tremendous milestone.

"It's been aged in a very rare red wine cask whose majesty transfers to a richly intense whisky, delivering very distinct berry flavours and luxuriant toffee," Mr Chang said.

Mr Chang said the packaging paid tribute to Yilan County, which is both Kavalan's homeland and Chairman Mr TT Lee's, through the form of Snow Mountain - Kavalan's water source.

The bottle's smooth yet sturdy shape expresses elegance and strength. Its crown-shaped cork is adorned with world-renowned Swarovski® crystals. Persistence and durability, and harmony with the natural environment, are imparted through the leather and wood casing of the box.

The King Car 40th Anniversary comes encased with a crystal glass tumbler and is limited to 10,000 packs globally.

King Car 40th Anniversary

Tasting Notes:

Colour: Royal auburn

Nose: Powerful and dense with rich notes of red wine exuding dark-skinned Cabernet Sauvignon fruit, with strawberry, bilberry, spice and flourishes of fresh charred oak.

Palate: Thick, mouth-drawing layers of toffee-rich berry fruits, enlivened with flares of spice, notably pepper, clove and tobacco, all brought together with a magnificent wine character.

Finish: Long and sensuous, yielding a gentle mix of signature fruits and soft spices.

About King Car Group

Established by Mr Tien-tsai Lee in 1979, the King Car brand is a household name in the food and drinks industry embodying the gold standard of quality in Taiwan. The family-owned conglomerate has 40 years' experience and incorporates divisions including King Car Food Industrial; King Car Cultural & Educational Foundation; King Car Biotechnology (Orchid Cultivation Center, Aquaculture Division, and Afforestation Park); Mr. Brown Coffee; Kavalan Whisky Distillery; Buckskin Beer; and the Restaurant and Bar business (two Beerhouses, Buckskin Yakiniku restaurant, Buckskin Taproom, and Kavalan Whisky Bar). King Car is led by Mr TT Lee's son, CEO Mr Yu-ting Lee, who ensures the group stays true to its roots in Yilan, honouring its beautiful natural environment, and committed to Chairman Mr TT Lee's vision. King Car's mission is to give customers security of mind through a trusted brand, dedicated to providing high quality products that help people lead their diverse lives to the full.

J.J. Corry Irish Whiskey Releases The Chosen - A 27-Year-Old Single Cask, Single Malt Irish Whiskey

AJ.J. Corry Irish Whiskey Releases The Chosen - A 27-Year-Old Single Cask, Single Malt Irish Whiskey Luxury Whiskey and Design Collaboration Between J.J. Corry Irish Whiskey, J. Hill's Standard Crystal and John Galvin Design

COORACLARE, Ireland, Nov. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Ireland's first modern Whiskey Bonder, J.J. Corry, has launched The Chosen, a 27-Year-Old Single Cask, Single Malt Irish Whiskey, in collaboration with contemporary Irish design houses, J. Hill's Standard and John Galvin Design.

The 27-Year-Old Single Cask, Single Malt Irish Whiskey is presented in 100 individually hand cut J. Hill's Standard crystal decanters and hand carved ash wood cabinets fashioned by John Galvin Design. The Chosen will retail for £6,500 and is available internationally from Bordeaux Index, Fine & Rare and in Ireland at The Celtic Whiskey Shop.

The design of the decanter and cabinet echoes the dune grass of the local beaches of the Wild Atlantic Way, home to J.J. Corry Irish Whiskey. Every crystal decanter is hand cut in Waterford by J. Hill's Standard, contemporary crystal design house founded by Anike Tyrell, while the ash wood cabinet is the creation of master craftsman John Galvin, a native of Cork. Both Irish design houses share a respect for traditional Irish crafts while interpreting them in a contemporary fashion, similar to the ethos of J.J. Corry Irish Whiskey.

Founder of J.J. Corry Irish Whiskey Louise McGuane commented: "The Chosen is a celebration of excellence in Irish Whiskey and contemporary Irish design.  Irish Whiskey has not been celebrated for its quality and rarity, as perhaps other categories have. We have some of the finest mature stock of whiskey in the world and yet I feel the industry undersells itself. I wanted to change that. Our approach to making Irish Whiskey celebrates tradition, embraces change and has the modern whiskey drinker front of mind.  All of this is reflected in The Chosen."

"We are curators of casks and creators of individual whiskey flavours. We constantly source and taste, knowing the personality of each cask that we own. Every cask in our custom built rackhouse has a different story and destiny. Occasionally we come across such an exceptional cask that it merits its own unique release and this was the case with The Chosen. We waited until the cask reached its absolute peak of maturation before we released it," she added.

"The rugged landscape of Co. Clare where J.J. Corry matures and blends whiskey also boasts many important grasslands and is an internationally recognised habitat for wildlife. The bespoke grass-cut on the decanters and cabinets reflects the close bond between this special whiskey house and the environment in which it is perfected. It has been a great pleasure to be part of its realisation."

Tasting Notes

Rich and superbly elegant with notes of toffee, rancio, dried mango and chestnut. This palate of intensely ripe fruits is complimented by incense and a luscious oily texture. The finish is long with just a touch of smoke. The Single Malt Irish Whiskey is bottled at cask strength at 52%.

"We are extremely proud to usher in a new era for Johnnie Walker fueled by a dynamic visual identity that is rooted in presenting our products and liquids in a way that creates real desire to explore a new world of experiences available within Scotch," shared Sophie Kelly, Senior Vice President of Whiskies, Diageo North America. "We are excited for more people to discover the experiences possible within our portfolio, that represent the attitudes of our drinker – always in motion, constantly exploring and experimenting, pushing boundaries, in order to taste more out of life.

The new Keep Walking creative unleashes the traditional Johnnie Walker icon in eyecatching patterns and brilliant colors. With strategic placement in cities across the U.S., the campaign showcases popular local cocktails in close proximity to where consumers 21+ can enjoy those same featured drinks. Through a reimagined view of the Johnnie Walker bottle, the campaign visuals are literally flipping Scotch whisky on its head.

In addition to revealing a fresh visual identity, the brand will welcome more people of legal drinking age into the world of Johnnie Walker through a new brand experience developed with experiential agency Giant Spoon. The immersive activation is a contemporary take on the original John Walker & Sons grocer, where the whisky now known as Johnnie Walker was created nearly 200 years ago.

First introduced to whisky and food fans at The New York Times Food Festival this October, the Johnnie Walker Cocktail Grocer experience features localized food offerings and creative cocktail serves. The cocktail experience will show up at cultural events across the country, including Tropicalia Festival, Infatuation's EEEEEATSCON LA, Tribeca Film Festival, and more.

To celebrate those who are stretching boundaries in culture, Johnnie Walker continues to support partners, like Chicano Batman, the Latino indie rock band inspiring a new sound, and visionary media company 88Rising, dedicated to advancing representation of Asians in music. More details on these partnerships will be announced throughout the year including ongoing purpose-driven work with continued brand partner, actress and activist Sophia Bush.

Matthew McConaughey and Wild Turkey® Bourbon Team Up With Operation BBQ Relief to Prepare Meals for Los Angeles First Responders

Matthew McConaughey and Wild Turkey® Bourbon Team Up With Operation BBQ Relief to Prepare Meals for Los Angeles First RespondersLOS ANGELES, Nov. 1, 2019 Matthew McConaughey and Wild Turkey® have teamed up with disaster relief organization Operation BBQ Relief to give thanks to first responders nationwide as part of the Bourbon brand's "With Thanks" annual charitable giving campaign. The program kicked off today in Los Angeles where Wild Turkey Creative Director McConaughey, Master Distiller Eddie Russell and a group of volunteers prepared and delivered turkey dinners to first responders who are critical in the rescue and relief efforts around the current wildfires in the area. The turkeys were generously donated by Butterball®, official turkey sponsor of Operation BBQ Relief.

McConaughey rallied volunteers and jumped behind the grill to help prepare 800 turkey dinners, which were then quickly delivered by the group to more than 20 firehouses of heroes who are battling the wildfires that are raging across Southern California. Volunteers not only prepared meals for first responders, but also cooked and packaged an additional 800 dinners for local homeless shelters. McConaughey took to Facebook Live to encourage folks nationwide to volunteer and donate to help support OBR's important relief efforts throughout the year, including their current deployment to Northern California, to provide hot meals to the first responders and those affected by the wildfires.

McConaughey and the Wild Turkey team had originally planned to be in Los Angeles in conjunction with National First Responder's Day to host an event honoring those involved in last year's Woolsey Fires, but that changed in response to the current emergency situation.

"Teaming up with Operation BBQ Relief as part of the Wild Turkey "With Thanks" has never been more meaningful," said Wild Turkey Creative Director Matthew McConaughey. "Little did we know when planning this annual event that California, my second home, would once again be hit with devastating fires. Being able to provide meals to the men and women who put themselves on the line is an honor for me, Jimmy and Eddie Russell. We are grateful to be here today to say thank you, shine a light on their unwavering conviction, and hopefully inspire others to get involved and help in their own communities."

Throughout the month of November and December, Wild Turkey will support Operation BBQ Relief (OBR), a nonprofit that responds to natural disasters and other situations to help feed displaced residents and emergency personnel. Following the Los Angeles relief effort, the Wild Turkey community will work with OBR to thank first responders in Dallas (11/5), New Orleans (11/12) and Chicago (11/19) with turkey dinners. In addition, the spirits brand will make appearances at local Thanksgiving turkey trots, including the New Orleans Athletic Club's Turkey Day Race and the ThunderCloud Subs Turkey Trot in Austin. As a proud official sponsor of Operation Barbecue Relief, Wild Turkey will also be donating $50,000 to further the organization's important work. Fans nationwide can donate by visiting https://operationbbqrelief.org/withthanks/.

McConaughey was also on hand last year as Wild Turkey recognized first responders from Hurricane Harvey in Houston, surprising them with a turkey dinner. In 2017, McConaughey visited Wild Turkey's hometown of Lawrenceburg, KY, to deliver more than 4,500 turkeys to residents, including 500 turkeys to the local food bank. McConaughey personally thanked every food bank employee for their hard work and dedication. 

"We are so fortunate to be working with Wild Turkey for the "With Thanks" campaign to shine a spotlight on First Responders across the country. Part of our mission throughout the year is to support these men and women as they are responding to severe situations in their communities," says Stan Hays, CEO and Co-Founder of Operation BBQ Relief. "BBQ is comfort food and reminds people of good times.  These hot meals we are preparing uplift the spirits of the first responders for their hard work each and every day."

"Wild Turkey is founded on community – from our tight-knit group of distillery employees to the townspeople who have supported us through the years," said Wild Turkey Master Distiller Eddie Russell. "To honor that spirit, every year we recognize people who perform extraordinary acts to support their communities – and do it with conviction. We are grateful to have our Creative Director Matthew McConaughey to help us take action and give thanks again this holiday season."

McConaughey has been the Creative Director for Wild Turkey since 2016. The relationship began upon the actor's inaugural visit to the iconic Kentucky distillery, where he was introduced to the Russells – the Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Fame® father and son Master Distiller team who have 101 years of Bourbon industry experience collectively. McConaughey had an immediate connection with the Russells when he discovered Wild Turkey's devotion to distilling Bourbon the right, unapologetic way. In 2018, McConaughey unveiled his own Bourbon: Wild Turkey Longbranch®, a rare small-batch Kentucky straight bourbon refined with Texas Mesquite.

About Wild Turkey Bourbon
The distillery for Wild Turkey Bourbon is located in Kentucky, situated on a deep limestone shelf on the Kentucky River. The shelf acts as a natural filter and provides the distillery with crystal clear water, vital to making such a high-quality product. Wild Turkey features the legendary father and son Master Distilling team of Jimmy and Eddie Russell, who have more than 100 years of collective experience working at the Wild Turkey distillery.

The famous Wild Turkey brand name first came about back in 1940 when distillery executive Thomas McCarthy took a few warehouse samples on a Wild Turkey hunting trip with a group of friends. The following year, his friends asked him for "some of that Wild Turkey whiskey" and the brand was born.

Wild Turkey is distilled and put into new oak barrels at a much lower ABV than most bourbons. This results in a much richer flavor, as less is cooked out during the production process. Ageing in the highest quality new American oak barrels with the heaviest char available (the Number 4 "alligator" char), imparts a smooth flavor and deep amber color to the whiskey.

The barrels are filled at the distillery in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky. Website: wildturkey.com.
