Alcohol Review: Ron Burgundy Great Odin’s Raven Special Reserve Scotch Whisky

A five-time Emmy Award-winning journalist, Ronald Joseph Aaron Ron Burgundy was the co-anchor of KVWN Channel 4 News Team in San Diego (pronounced San De-aago) from 1964 to 1977. “I don’t know how to put this, but I’m kind of a big deal,” says Burgundy, about himself. “People know me.”

Ron Burgundy Great Odin’s Raven Special Reserve Scotch Whisky is a blend of 60% malt whisky and 40% grain whisky sourced from the Speyside, Highlands and Islay regions of Scotland. “It has a formidable scent,” says Burgundy. “It stings the nostrils – in a good way.” The aroma gives way to notes of rich mahogany and old, leather-bound manuscripts. Needless to say, this Scotch is not available at the Toilet Store. In addition, studies suggest that 60% of the time, this whisky will get you drunk everytime.

“I love Scotch,” says Burgundy. “Scotchy, Scotch, Scotch. Here it goes down. Down into my belly.” Pick up a bottle today!

Product Spotlight: Brenne Single Malt Whisky

 

 

AGED IN FRENCH OAK & COGNAC BARRELS Brenne Whisky starts in new Limousin oak barrels before being finished in Cognac casks, giving it a hint of perfumed fruit that sets it apart from other whiskies.

 

SINGLE CASK BOTTLES Each bottle of Brenne Whisky comes from a single barrel selected at its peak. We don’t blend barrels. Each barrel number is stamped on the back label.

 

COGNAC DISTILLING TECHNIQUE Using cool fermentation and small batch production, Brenne Whisky is twice distilled in copper alembic stills for a smooth finish.

 

NO AGE STATEMENT Because Brenne Estate Cask is bottled individually by barrel, the aging for each cask differs as it depends on how long the Cognac was in the barrel before. On average, the whisky ages for a total of about 7 years.
Bottled at 40% abv (80 proof)

 

About the Company
Allison Patel and her husband Nital shared a passion for food and drink has immersed them in cultures all over the world. Making an effort to visit local markets, wineries, and distilleries in their travels, they have developed an appreciation of great taste experiences, especially with their favorite category: whisky. Years ago while on a slew of international business trips, Nital would frequently call his wife (often waking her up in the middle of the night due to time differences!) to tell her about all of the amazing whiskies he tasted. After failing to find many of these “non- traditional” whiskies in the US, Allison took into own her hands and started setting up an import/ export company for this sole purpose.

While exploring the world whisky scene for something “new”, Allison encountered a third generation Cognac producer who had started distilling a unique Single Malt at his farm distillery in the heart of Cognac, France. At that time, a majority of the oldest whisky was around three to four years old in new French Limousin oak barrels. Upon tasting it, Allison immediately knew it was something special. She and the distiller collaborated over a span of three and a half years to refine the aging spirit and continue laying down more barrels as each year’s crop of barley was ready to be harvested. A breakthrough occurred when Allison decided to incorporate his previously used Cognac casks in the whisky aging process. This stimulated the whisky in a beautiful way; ultimately creating a new profile within the Single Malt category that became Brenne Whisky.

Brenne Whisky is crafted from seed to spirit in the heart of Cognac, France in very limited batches. Allison’s first expression, Estate Cask, has no age statement as every barrel is bottled in single barrel releases and the aging time on each cask may vary slightly.

After intense work, Allison is honored to share Brenne with the world, introducing an incredibly smooth, approachable, and fruit-forward French whisky that reinvigorates the category. Brenne officially launched on October 1, 2012 in New York City and we are excited to share our dream with whisky enthusiasts far and wide.

Alcohol Spotlight: Crusoe Organic Silver Rum

 

Inspired by the legendary Robinson CRUSOE, we make our mellow, modern rum with the best ingredients and the simplest methods. We start with organic molasses — the richest and most flavorful. To retain as much flavor as possible, we borrowed a technique from our neighboring California wine makers (micro oxygenation). The results taste like no other rum made and help you craft exceptional rum cocktails like daiquiris and mojitos.

ABOUT GREENBAR COLLECTIVE
Greenbar Collective represents the world’s largest portfolio of organic, handcrafted spirits, including BAR KEEP organic bitters, CRUSOE organic rums, FRUITLAB organic liqueurs, IXÁ organic tequila, SLOW HAND organic whiskey, TRU organic gin and TRU organic vodkas.

But that wasn’t always the case.

When husband-and-wife team Melkon Khosrovian and Litty Mathew began making spirits in 2004, they used conventional spirits and local, hand-processed produce.

Soon, their unique spirits won many awards. But Melkon and Litty couldn’t take all the credit. They learned their successes also hinged on some silent partners — the farmers who grew their ingredients. Several had moved to organic farming, resulting in more aromatic, flavorful produce…which led to more flavorful, aromatic spirits.

Their minds were made. ORGANICS HELD THE KEY TO BETTER TASTING SPIRITS. Today, Greenbar Collective produces and distributes the world’s biggest portfolio of organic spirits — all made by hand with real ingredients.

The environment also benefits because the company uses lightweight bottles, 100% recycled labels and plants a tree for every bottle sold. Cheers!
