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.

LAS VEGAS, June 30, 2020 For the first time in the history of the International Whisky Competition®, Stephanie Macleod, Master Blender for John Dewar and Sons, becomes the first woman ever to blend a Whisky of the Year.

The International Whisky Competition® just released its results for this year's most respected blind tasting judging event.

The 11th edition of the International Whisky Competition took place in Estes Park, CO, over four days, from June 10th to 14th, and received whisky submissions from all over the world. A world-class tasting panel made of whisky, spirit, beer, and wine experts blind tasted each whisky on an individual basis (8 minutes per whisky).

Each whisky was scored using a comprehensive 100-point scale system developed by Sebastien Gavillet, IWC Head of Tasting Panel. This process and the fact that only three medals are awarded in any category make the International Whisky Competition the most followed whisky competition and one of the most professional competitions of its kind in the world.

We warmly congratulate Stephanie Macleod, Master Blender at John Dewar and Sons, as well as her team, for crafting such a complex, unctuous, and perfectly balanced whisky.

John Dewar and Sons will receive the Golden Barrel Trophy for winning Whisky of the Year during a ceremony to be held this Fall in Aberfeldy, Scotland.

The International Whisky Competition is the most followed Whisky Competition on Social Media. It brings whiskies from around the world to be blind tasted and rated by a professional tasting panel using the most comprehensive tasting method available. Fifteen criteria are required to produce the tasting notes as well as aroma and flavor profiles for the International Whisky Guide. Unlike other competitions, the judges are presented with one whisky at a time to ensure each whisky gets the proper attention. It's the only competition in the spirits world to deliver unique medals designed to promote each of the winning whiskies. Only three medals (Gold, Silver & Bronze) are awarded per category. The Whisky of the Year (highest score during the competition) gets rewarded with the Golden Barrel Trophy.

James B. Beam Distilling Co. Relaunches Old Tub® For A Limited Time As A Tribute To Its First Groundbreaking Whiskey

James B. Beam Distilling Co. Relaunches Old Tub® For A Limited Time As A Tribute To Its First Groundbreaking WhiskeyCHICAGO, June 23, 2020 Today, the James B. Beam Distilling Co. announced the re-release of Old Tub®, an unfiltered, 100-proof bonded bourbon inspired by the oldest brand from the Beam family. This limited-edition throwback offering celebrates bourbon's true, rustic character, will be widely available in late June.

Old Tub is distilled without chill filtration to showcase its unique qualities reminiscent of the world's oldest bourbons.  Just like the original Old Tub recipe, the liquid skips the chill filtration process, which forces the liquid through a dense filter to remove fatty acids during distillation, resulting in a bonded bourbon with a full-bodied authentic flavor.

The limited-edition offering is a nostalgic nod to where it all began for the Beam family over 140 years ago in Bardstown, KY, which is otherwise known as the Bourbon Capital of the World. This unique bourbon has tasting notes that include oak, complimented along with grain and a warm caramel. It has a lingering color of golden citrine gemstone with shades of honey and an aroma that carries initial waves of oak followed by vanilla and grain.

"We're taking bourbon lovers back in time and making a delicious bourbon true to the way my ancestors intended over 140 years ago, when Old Tub was first crafted," said Fred Noe, seventh generation master distiller. "I'm excited to share this one-of-a-kind liquid with our fans and provide a bit of authenticity and nostalgia as we head towards another 225 years in the bourbon industry."

Old Tub is best enjoyed neat or in classic cocktails like an Old Fashioned or a Brown Derby, which includes bourbon, grapefruit juice and honey syrup. It will be available for a limited time at select retailers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $22.99 for 750mL.

George Dickel Returns To Bottled In Bond Category With New Vintage Of Their Award-Winning Whisky

George Dickel Announces the Release of Bottled in Bond (Fall 2008)TULLAHOMA, Tenn., June 16, 2020 Last year, George Dickel entered the Bottled in Bond category by launching the brand's Fall 2005 whisky, which earned the coveted "Whisky of the Year" award from Whisky Advocate and was the top-rated American Whiskey of 2019 by Wine Enthusiast. Close to a year later, General Manager and Distiller, Nicole Austin, is continuing her pledge of transparency, authenticity and producing a quality whisky at an approachable price by releasing a new bottling of George Dickel's Bottled in Bond Tennessee Whisky.


George Dickel Announces the Release of Bottled in Bond (Fall 2008)

Bold and balanced, this 11-year-old whisky was bottled in Fall 2008 and offers tantalizing notes of pecan, maple syrup and dried apple. At 100 proof (50% ABV), this release of George Dickel Bottled in Bond is best enjoyed slowly neat or on the rocks and plays well in many classic cocktails like an Old Fashioned or Perfect Manhattan.

"Bottled in Bond whiskies have always been one of my favorite categories because you know exactly what you're getting when you pick up a bottle," said Austin. "Our team continues to make great whisky that's reflective of the values we feel are most important, and I'm proud to share this year's vintage of George Dickel Bottled in Bond with everyone. Like last year's release, this bottling is a bold, complex spirit that shares the classic nutty, fruity and waxy characteristics that are expected from mature George Dickel whiskies."

George Dickel Bottled in Bond has a mash bill of 84% corn, 8% rye and 8% malted barley. It is chill charcoal mellowed like the rest of the George Dickel Tennessee Whisky portfolio, which helps it get that smooth and creamy mouthfeel for which the brand is best known.

Beginning this month, the new George Dickel Bottled in Bond will be available in select markets across the nation for consumers to purchase at retail or order directly to their homes for a suggested retail price of $39.99.

As with all the whiskies in the George Dickel family, your friends at Cascade Hollow encourage you to sip this new offering the same way it's made – slowly and responsibly.

Personal Preference Manhattan Recipe

  • 1.5 oz George Dickel Bottled in Bond
  • .25 oz Sweet Vermouth
  • .25 oz Dry Vermouth
  • Dash aromatic bitters
  • Lemon peel garnish

Fill cocktail shaker with ice and combine whiskey, vermouths, and bitters. Mix well then strain into cocktail glass. Add lemon peel as garnish and serve.

Jack Daniel's Tennessee Fire Teams Up With Top Drag Queens For Mukbang-Inspired Digital Content Series

Jack Daniel's Tennessee Fire Teams Up With Top Drag Queens For Mukbang-Inspired Digital Content Series"Drag Queen Mukbang" blends two Millennial food trends to raise awareness about COVID impact on the LGBTQ+ community during Pride Month

MIAMI, June 16, 2020- Jack Daniel's Tennessee Fire, a classic spirit that blends the bold character of Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey with cinnamon liqueur, is partnering with some of America's leading drag queens for "Drag Queen Mukbang," a branded content series that pairs two popular Millennial food trends: mukbang and the drag queen brunch. Debuting during Pride Month on JackFirePride.com, the four episode series will feature YouTube sensation Patrick Starrr, Gia Gunn ("RuPaul's Drag Race" Season 6), Eugene Lee Yang (The Try Guys) and Laganja Estranja ("RuPaul's Drag Race" Season 6) serving up a virtual dining experience filled with food, Jack Daniel's Tennessee Fire, laughs and all kinds of fabulousness. The stars will discuss the impact of COVID-19 on their lives and its impact in the LGBTQ+ community through off-the-cuff storytelling and testimonials.

"Jack Daniel's Tennessee Fire Presents Drag Queen Mukbang" will blend the irreverence of a drag queen brunch, a drag show normally performed in front of a live audience during a late morning meal, with the intimacy of mukbang, a popular genre of social media videos that feature hosts enjoying a variety of food while interacting with the audience. New episodes of "Drag Queen Mukbang" will debut weekly and feature talent enjoying a lavish meal mukbang-style while entertaining viewers with quips, jokes and other surprises highlighting Tennessee Fire.

With bars, clubs and event spaces shuttered in the wake of the pandemic, drag queens and other self-employed entertainers who earn their livelihoods from performing at these venues have faced unprecedented financial hardship, which will be addressed by the "Drag Queen Mukbang" hosts in each video. With an aim to champion organizations and initiatives that support LGBTQ+ communities, Jack Daniel's Tennessee Fire has also partnered with GLAAD and various local nonprofits across the country. A longtime supporter of the LGBTQ+ community, Jack Daniel's parent company Brown-Forman has received a perfect score for 10 consecutive years on the Corporate Equality Index, a national report on corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ+ workplace equality.

More about the cast of "Jack Daniel's Tennessee Fire Presents Drag Queen Mukbang" and the premiere dates for their videos:

  • Patrick Starrr - One of the first "men in makeup" on YouTube, Patrick Starrr is a beauty guru pioneer who has amassed over 4 million subscribers and dolled up celebrities such as Kim Kardashian West and Paris Hilton. (June 20)
  • Gia Gunn - A transgender contestant featured on Season 6 of "RuPaul's Drag Race" and Season 4 of "RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars," Gia is known for her iconic catchphrases and being an outspoken advocate for trans rights. (June 27)
  • Eugene Lee Yang - Best known for being 1/4 of The Try Guys, Eugene also has a drag persona — Cheyenne Pepper — who has hosted the 2018 Streamy Awards and performed alongside "RuPaul's Drag Race" queens at last year's VidCon closing ceremony. (July 4)
  • Laganja Estranja - A contestant on Season 6 of "RuPaul's Drag Race," Laganja was named one of "The Most Powerful Drag Queens in America" by New York Magazine and featured on the cover of its special issue alongside Gia Gunn. (July 11)

Due to national stay-at-home orders, each episode was self-shot entirely by the hosts. Any hosts that appear together in an episode are also in quarantine together, in compliance with social distancing restrictions. In addition to handling production duties, the performers designed their own sets using whatever materials were readily available — with the exception of Tennessee Fire products.

"I wore a costume that I already had on hand and did the makeup myself," said Eugene Lee Yang. "We may be limited in what we can do while filming, but Jack Daniel's Tennessee Fire worked with us every step of the way to create the ultimate drag-themed mukbang experience."

"For some reason, food, drink and drag just seem to go together," said Laganja Estranja. "My fellow queens and I applaud Jack Daniel's Tennessee Fire for shining a light on the community during these challenging times and using this series to support organizations like GLAAD."

"The drag community consists of many artists and performers who depend on nightlife spaces to earn a living," said Gia Gunn. "Many people in our community are struggling right now as a result of the shutdown. I am super thankful to Jack Daniel's Tennessee Fire for calling attention to this part of the industry that is often overlooked."

"This lineup is about inclusivity," said Patrick Starrr. "We have drag queens and beauty gurus, drinkers and non-drinkers like Gia, a Try Guy and a transgender woman. We're able to connect over our love of performing and just share good food and Jack Daniel's Tennessee Fire with viewers."

"Jack Daniel's Tennessee Fire is honored to collaborate with such an extraordinary roster of talent to produce a one-of-a-kind content series that also addresses some real issues being faced by the LGBTQ+ community," said Fabricia da Silva, Field Marketing Manager of Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey. "This series combines an IRL food trend with a social media phenomenon to create bold and fiery content designed to warm hearts and lift spirits."

Series IV shows layers of rich caramel, candied fruit spice and toasted oak. The palate offers baking spices and oak, with a lingering finish of rye spice.

Highly anticipated, previous releases of Remus Repeal Reserve have achieved some of the highest recognition in the Bourbon category, including a Double Gold in the 2019 San Francisco World Spirits Competition and 98 points from Tasting Panel Magazine for Remus Repeal Reserve Series III.

Remus Repeal Reserve Series IV retails for a suggested $84.99 per 750-ml bottle and will be available in limited quantities as of September 2020. It is bottled at 100 proof/50% ABV. For more information, please contact Helen Gregory, helen@gregoryvine.com, or Amanda Davis, amanda@gregoryvine.com.

Uncle Nearest And Jack Daniel's Join Forces To Launch The Nearest & Jack Advancement Initiative To Increase Diversity In American Whiskey Industry

Uncle Nearest And Jack Daniel's Join Forces To Launch The Nearest & Jack Advancement Initiative To Increase Diversity In American Whiskey IndustryLYNCHBURG, Tenn., June 11, 2020 The Jack Daniel Distillery and the Nearest Green Distillery announced today the Nearest & Jack Advancement Initiative to further diversity within the American whiskey industry. Both companies are supporting it equally with an initial combined pledge of $5 million to help create the Nearest Green School of Distilling, develop the Leadership Acceleration Program (LAP) for apprenticeships and establish the Business Incubation Program (BIP), focused on providing expertise and resources to African Americans entering the spirits industry as entrepreneurs. This joint initiative will be guided by an advisory board with members from both organizations.

Motlow State College, the fastest growing college in Tennessee, has worked with leaders from both companies for the past year to develop a curriculum for the Nearest Green School of Distilling. The STEM based and employable skills focused program has passed Motlow State requirements and is now awaiting approval from the Tennessee Board of Regents to begin moving toward accreditation by the institutions accrediting body SACSCOC. The certificate program may be offered as early as Fall 2021.

The Leadership Acceleration Program (LAP) will offer apprenticeships specifically to African Americans already in the whiskey industry, who are wanting to become a head distiller, head of maturation or production manager. The inaugural apprentices have already been identified and will begin shadowing at top distilleries throughout the country.

The third arm of the Nearest & Jack Advancement Initiative is the Business Incubation Program (BIP) that will offer African American entrepreneurs mentorship in all areas of the distilling business, including access to top marketing firms, branding executives, expanded distribution networks and other assets and opportunities to grow their spirits businesses.

"Generally, when companies talk about the need to improve diversity, few immediate action steps follow," said Fawn Weaver, CEO, Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey. "Our group is different. We are doers, and we all agreed to work together to improve diversity in our industry, and specifically, a way to get African Americans into top positions within our industry. Nearest Green taught Jack Daniel how to make Tennessee whiskey and we're incredibly proud our companies are joining forces to further their legacies of excellence, and to make distilling and the whiskey industry we love more diverse."

"Given our deep commitment to diversity and inclusion, I am thrilled we are coming together in this way today," said Lawson Whiting, President and Chief Executive Officer, Brown-Forman Corporation, the parent company of Jack Daniel's. "This collaboration allows the extraordinary friendship of Nearest and Jack, and the hope they embodied during racially divided times in our country's history, to help us advance the next generation of African American leaders in our industry."

About Uncle Nearest

Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey, independently owned by CEO Fawn Weaver, honors the first known African American master distiller, Nathan "Nearest" Green.

Devils River Whiskey Adds Cold Brew Blend To Wake Up Your Spirit

Devils River Whiskey Adds Cold Brew Blend To Wake Up Your SpiritSAN ANTONIO, June 10, 2020- Devils River Whiskey, maker of premium small batch whiskeys, announces the launch of Devils River Coffee Bourbon Whiskey, a San Francisco World Spirits Competition Gold Medal winner and a rich, smoky addition to their family of whiskies.

When it comes to popular drinks, coffee and whiskey score pretty high up on the list. So what do you get when you combine them in one bottle? A heavenly fusion of flavors and the makings of an instant classic.

"We believe coffee and whiskey are natural companions. Both have intense character and intricate processes," says Mike Cameron, co-founder and Distiller of Devils River Whiskey. "We decided to take on the challenge of marrying these two beverages into one sinfully smooth whiskey. With our emphasis on quality and technique, they're a match made in bourbon whiskey heaven."

The Texas based team chose a local San Antonio coffee roastery with standards to match its own meticulous distilling process. All of the beans are "fair trade" and come responsibly sourced from Columbia, Brazil and Honduras.

"After trying a variety of roasting styles, we found that the dark Vienna Roast best compliments our whiskey, adding another layer to its deep flavor profile," states Cameron. "The Vienna Roast is the most difficult roast to achieve on a consistent basis, so of course we had to take on the challenge. Besides being darker, richer and more aromatic, this blend has a full body that features caramel, citrus and berry notes with a rich, satisfying finish."

But the team at Devils Whiskey didn't stop there. To further enhance the flavor of their Coffee Bourbon, they opted for a cold brew process. "During our research we discovered hot brewing forces the flavor from the bean, but cold brew likes to take its own sweet time," says Devils River Whiskey Vice President of Marketing, Eric Hundelt. "We steep our Devils River Bourbon with the dark roasted Vienna coffee beans for at least 24 hours at a low temperature to bring out the smooth, sweet flavor cold brew coffees are known for."

As if adding a jolt of java to a world-class whiskey isn't enough, the Coffee Bourbon is then naturally infused with 100% blue weber agave nectar to mellow the finish and add a touch of sweetness. The result: a perfectly balanced, premium drinking experience.

"The gold medal our Coffee Bourbon won at this year's San Francisco World Spirits Competition was a great honor to receive prior to the launch of this expression," says John Potts, Devils River Whiskey Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "It supported the hundreds of hours of research, planning and work that went into making this idea a reality."

At 80-proof, you can enjoy Devils River Coffee Bourbon Whiskey like any traditional whiskey: neat, on the rocks or in your favorite cocktail. Natural oils from the dark roasted beans provide a creamy mouthfeel, while touches of dark chocolate and spice permeate its understated coffee flavor. Soft on the palate, this high rye bourbon has a warm, soothing and perfectly balanced finish.

Its subtle coffee aroma balanced with caramel, smoke and a touch of fruit, makes Devils River Coffee Bourbon Whiskey a great cocktail companion. Here are a few great recipes!
