Spirits Spotlight: Cascade Hollow Distilling Co. Launches a New Chapter with Cascade Moon Whisky Limited Release



General Manager and Distiller Nicole Austin Introduces A New Line of Whisky from Cascade Hollow Distilling Co. that Is 'Mellow as Moonlight'

TULLAHOMA, Tenn., Oct. 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- For more than a century, the team at George A. Dickel & Co. has brought incredible whiskies to consumers in Tennessee and beyond. Now, 150 years since its founding, the company is looking ahead to its next chapter with the launch of the Cascade Moon Whisky series - a brand new line of highly limited whiskies that are sure to be sought after by whisky fans around the country and pay homage to the distillery's history while setting the tone for the future of the whisky category.

Even the name of the series, which is inspired by Cascade Hollow's original Cascade Pure Whisky that used the tagline 'mellow as moonlight', strikes a balance between the traditional and contemporary. The first release from the lineup, Cascade Moon Edition No. 1, brings the best of Cascade Hollow to market, with Austin blending a specialized whisky that is inspired by, and features, similar tasting notes found in a gose-style beer.

Whisky fans and afficionados can expect variety with each release, as each variant will differ based on what Austin's current inspirations are and offer drinkers a unique tasting experience. For Cascade Moon Edition No. 1, this 11-year-old whisky offers savory pretzel-like notes, along with bright and fruity notes of raspberry, pineapple and coconut. At 84 proof (42% ABV), Cascade Moon Edition No. 1 is surprising and unexpected, encouraging you to sip again and again to taste its unique flavors.

"Over the past few years, I've loved blending for George Dickel Tennessee Whisky, creating innovations that respect the heritage and history of Tennessee Whisky. In that process, I've found some incredible whiskies we've produced at Cascade Hollow that wouldn't necessarily fit within the George Dickel portfolio," said Austin. "With the release of Cascade Moon, I'm excited to have found a way to showcase these amazing whiskies and be able to showcase our depth as a distillery, outside of George Dickel and the traditional Tennessee Whisky category."

The initial launch of Cascade Moon includes two variants that will be released over the next year. Beginning this fall, Cascade Moon Edition No. 1 will be regionally available in Tennessee, California and Texas for a limited time at a suggested retail price of $89.99. Consumers can also expect a second release from the series coming later this fall.

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

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


New Coffee Bourbon Wins Gold Medal at 2020 San Francisco World Spirits Competition

SAN ANTONIO, June 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- 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!

Bourbon Spiked Iced Coffee

1.5 oz Devils River Coffee Bourbon 2 oz coffee or cold brew2 oz nitro stout beer.75 oz Demerara syrup

.5 oz. heavy whipping cream Freshly grated cinnamon

Spirits Spotlight: Conor McGregor Launches Proper No. Twelve Irish Whiskey


CRUMLIN, Ireland, Sept. 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Eire Born Spirits today announces the launch of Proper No. Twelve Irish Whiskey. Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) Champion and one of the world's most iconic athletes, Conor McGregor, is the founder, chairman and majority owner of the company. McGregor is proud to introduce this exciting Irish whiskey to the world, launching in Ireland and the United States, with further expansion in 2019 and onward. McGregor, being the perfectionist that he is, took a detailed, time-intensive approach to creating his whiskey.

Numerous Irish whiskey makers sought McGregor's endorsement over the years, but as a true born and bred Irishman, he did not want to simply endorse an Irish whiskey. Inspired by his pride for Ireland and his love of Irish whiskey, McGregor wanted to create his own whiskey that would match his high standards and make his country proud.

For years, McGregor developed the brand under the project name "Notorious" through which came the foundation of what was to eventually become Proper No. Twelve. It became a longer and more complicated project than originally expected, so McGregor turned to the world's oldest whiskey distillery, located in Ireland, with a proven history of quality whiskey making. He met David Elder, esteemed master distiller, previously of Guinness, and together they took painstaking measures to bring the whiskey to fruition. "We created close to one hundred blends and ultimately selected what we knew was the one and only proper whiskey blend.  We took the time to develop an incredible whiskey and I'm excited to share it with the world," said McGregor.

Proper No. Twelve's global launch expression is a blend of the finest golden grain and single malt.  It is produced in an area known for its rich soil and pure spring water. Proper No. Twelve is complex and sophisticated yet smooth and approachable with hints of vanilla, honey and toasted wood.

"I come from a place called Crumlin, in Dublin 12. It's a place dear to my heart. It's where I learned how to fight; it made me who I am today. It's a place I'm still very much a part of every single day of my life. So, that's where the name came from. It's proper Irish whiskey and twelve is my hometown," said McGregor. "Growing up on the streets of Dublin 12, I learned the values of loyalty and hard work. I respect other Irish whiskeys, but I am coming in strong, with passion and with purpose. I am the founder of this company and I am going to give it my all," he continued.

It is important to McGregor to give back in a meaningful way. First responders exemplify his core values and those of Proper No. Twelve – commitment, loyalty and community – a "ONE FOR ALL" mentality. "First responders all over the world are the unsung heroes who act with courage and answer the call of duty every day for people in need," McGregor commented. "I have great respect for these men and women." The company has committed to donate $5 for every case sold to local first responder organizations/charities, up to $1 million annually. The organizations/charities will be identified for each state and country around the world and donations will go directly to specific states and countries where sales take place.

Proximo has been named the global distribution partner for Proper No. Twelve, which will be available in McGregor's homeland of Ireland and the United States this month. Proper No. Twelve is 80 proof. Visit ProperWhiskey.com to learn more and follow @ProperWhiskey.

About Conor McGregor:

Conor McGregor is a Mixed Martial Arts World Champion, family man, philanthropist and entrepreneur who now can add Founder and Chairman to his name with the launch of Proper No. Twelve Irish Whiskey, owned by his company Eire Born Spirits.

McGregor has catapulted into stardom not only as a Mixed Martial Arts World Champion, but as a cultural phenomenon recognized for his outspoken personality and incredible work ethic. He is among the biggest pay-per-view draws in MMA history, having headlined four out-of-the six highest ever-selling Mixed Martial Arts, UFC pay-per-view events. His boxing match with Floyd Mayweather drew 4.3 million pay-per-view buys in North America, the second most buys in combat sports history.

McGregor's strong work ethic and dedication to MMA have allowed him to achieve his tremendous success. In the last five years, McGregor has gone from a plumber receiving social welfare to becoming one of the highest paid athletes in the world.

Spirits Spotlight: Bogart Spirits Launches Limited-Edition Whiskey


The partnership between John Paul DeJoria's ROK Drinks and the Humphrey Bogart Estate now features a gin, vodka, rum, and whiskey

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- ROK Stars PLC, the consumer goods and environmental technologies development company founded by John Paul DeJoria and Jonathan Kendrick announce the addition of a limited edition Whiskey into the Bogart's Spirits portfolio. The iconic actor Humphrey Bogart enjoyed a good cocktail, and he made a lot of legendary observations about drinking. One of Bogart's famous quotes, "I defend my American right to take a drink when I feel like it," is now featured on the label of a limited-edition whiskey from Bogart Spirits.

Bogart Spirits is a partnership between the Humphrey Bogart Estate and ROK Drinks that produces the award-winning Bogart's Gin, Bogart's Rum, and Bogart's Vodka at its California craft distillery, and now Bogart's Whiskey will complete the product line-up.

ROK Drinks co-founder Jonathan Kendrick says of Bogart's Whiskey: "This is a truly special whiskey. We know connoisseurs will find it worthy of the Bogart name. And as with our other spirits, each bottle will feature the iconic Bogart image, one of his authentic quotes, and his signature engraved in the glass."

Bogart Estate CEO Robbert de Klerk explained why the two children of iconic Hollywood couple Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall are so enthusiastic about the addition of Bogart's Whiskey: "While Humphrey Bogart enjoyed all spirits, it's fair to say he had a special place in his heart for gin and whiskey. Now that we're adding Bogart's Whiskey, our product offering really feels complete. When I discussed adding whiskey with Stephen Bogart, he told me about the many weekends he spent sailing with his dad on Bogart's beloved Santana yacht. When people asked Bogie what made the boat go so fast, the original Rat Pack founder always gave the same answer: 'Whiskey.'

The Bogart's Whiskey will be available November 15th, 2017 and will retail for the suggested price of $35 and will be available for purchase at several retailers and online at Urbandaddy.com

Industry News: “Technology Aged Whisky” Outscores 95% of the World’s Best Whiskies, Making History


LOS ANGELES, Oct. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Jim Murray's famous 2018 Whisky Bible has awarded 94 points and its coveted Liquid Gold designation to Lost Spirits Abomination, a peated malt "aged" in just 6 days utilizing Lost Spirits' revolutionary patented technology.

The Whisky Bible contains over 4,600 ratings of the world's top whiskies, and Liquid Gold is only awarded to those scoring at least 94 points -- representing the top 5% of all whiskies cataloged in the "bible."  Lost Spirits has made history by becoming the first spirits-maker to reach the pinnacle of whisky making by "hacking" the chemistry of barrel aging.

Lost Spirits entered two peated malts into the judging: Abomination - Crying of the Puma and Abomination - Sayers of the Law. Both started as Scottish malts so young they cannot yet legally be labeled whisky.  The spirits were then finished in California over 6 days utilizing Lost Spirits' revolutionary patented technology.  The Crying of the Puma expression nearly also achieved the Liquid Gold designation, scoring 93 points.  No additives or flavorings of any kind were utilized from start to finish.

The technology works by exposing oak to high intensity light and heat while suspended in a glass tube filled with unaged or young distilled spirit.  The combination of specific wavelengths of light and heat has been proven to trigger the same chemical reactions that happen in casks aged for many years.   Link.

Lost Spirits Co-Founder and inventor Bryan Davis said, "We created our technology because we wanted to find a better way to make the spirits we like to drink.  We didn't set out to make well-aged spirits more accessible and affordable, by eliminating the time and cost of decades spent aging in a barrel, though our tech does that very well.  Rather we wanted to make some big progress.  We think we've probably done that, but we'll let spirits fans be the judge."

In May 2017, Davis' work was covered in an 8-page spread in WIRED Magazine. Lost Spirits has won numerous awards for its revolutionary spirits-making, including the Global Prize for Innovation from international trade publication, The Spirits Business magazine. According to Huffington Post writer Tony Sachs, "Lost Spirits Abomination may be the future of American Whisky." The Lost Spirits LA Arts District facility has been called the "Willy Wonka Booze Factory" by numerous publications.


About Whiskey Bible:  Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2018 marks 15 years since he began publishing Whisky Bible. Today Murray is recognized as the world's leading authority on malt whisky. The bible includes tasting notes and reviews of over 4,600 top whiskies.

Spirits Spotlight: LiDestri Launching Cask & Crew Premium Straight + Flavored Whiskey



ROCHESTER, N.Y., Jan. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Order a "caffè corretto" in Italy, and you'll get an espresso with a kick of something extra. ­The legendary drink was the inspiration for Cask & Crew whiskey, an imaginatively crafted and inventively flavored premium brand that LiDestri Spirits calls a "whiskey corrected."  Not that it needs correcting; the word communicates the infusion of flavors that unite, yet respect, the whiskey's blend of rye and corn.

Cask & Crew straight and flavored whiskeys are a 51%/49% blend of fine three-year-old Canadian rye and classic barrel aged American corn whiskey respectively. It is characterized by a sophisticated profile that skillfully marries smoky and sweet notes to achieve an ultra-smooth taste.  The line's three initial flavors include a straight blend of rye and whiskey (40% ABV), and two that are "corrected" with Walnut Toffee or Ginger Spice (35% ABV).

All three Cask & Crew flavors from its first batch earned Silver Medals at the 2016 New York World Wine & Spirits Competition.

Priced at $24-$26.99 for 750 ml bottles, Cask & Crew's Batch 1 is currently sold in New York, New Jersey, Florida, Connecticut, Maryland and Kentucky, and will be available in 12 states by spring. With brisk sales, Batch 1's 22,500 bottles (7500 per flavor) are expected to sell out by March and LiDestri is gearing up production for Batch 2.

"Brown flavored spirits are really having a moment," LiDestri Spirits Vice President Joe Ragazzo said. "We wanted to create something that was complex enough to appeal to whiskey aficionados, yet inviting enough to be an intriguing experience for people exploring whiskey for the first time."

The name "Cask & Crew" is homage to the new American oak casks (charred for the rye and raw for the corn whiskey) that were carefully selected to make the two whiskeys, and the adventurous crew of folks who brought the brand to life," Ragazzo noted.  Before selecting these two whiskeys, LiDestri Spirits' innovation team—a group of knowledgeable whiskey connoisseurs and enthusiastic novices—crossed state and international boundaries to find the best options possible.

"We sampled a wide range of fine whiskeys from some of our renowned distillery partners in North America, and went through dozens of iterations using a wide range of whiskeys to achieve the final blend," Ragazzo added.

Cask & Crew is the first premium spirit in LiDestri's expanding portfolio. The eight-year-old company is a division of LiDestri Food and Drink.

About LiDestri Spirits:  The Rochester, NY-based company is a division of LiDestri Food & Drink, and provides a variety of services including contract manufacturing for high-proof spirits, liqueurs, wine-based products, cream liqueurs, wines and other custom or specialty liquor-based products. Its state-of-the-art facility produces a wide range of product formulations, sizes and designs. Proprietary brands include Pink Limoncello, mü coffeehouse cocktails, Recipe 21, LiDestri Sangria, Tuttobello Liqueurs and Cask & Crew whiskey.

Spirits Spotlight: The Dalmore release 50 year old Single Malt Scotch Whiskey




The definitive luxury malt, The Dalmore is set to release an exceptionally rare, Domaine Henri Giraud champagne-finished, 50 year old single malt to mark its Master Distiller Richard Paterson’s 50th year in the whisky industry.

As the creative force behind some of the most iconic and innovative releases in the world, Richard Paterson’s passion, expertise and artistry has seen him pioneer the art of maturation and cask finishing which has been instrumental to the success of The Dalmore.

Building on the celebrations surrounding Richard’s 50th anniversary, the limited edition, The Dalmore 50 year old has been meticulously crafted in partnership with four other legendary luxury houses, to serve as a fitting tribute to each year of his illustrious career.

With up to 50 decanters released, which will be hand-filled on order, The Dalmore 50 has been matured in American white oak, Matusalem oloroso sherry casks from the world renowned Gonzalez Byass Bodega and port Colheita pipes from the Douro region of Portugal, before undertaking a final finesse for 50 days in rare champagne casks from Domaine Henri Giraud.

Paterson did not select the champagne cask by chance. Considered to be one of the region’s hidden gems, Domaine Henri Giraud family estate is regularly lauded by experts from around the globe and is one of the only champagne houses to still mature their wines in casks. The casks selected have a unique intensity and aromatic complexity, giving Paterson the final flourish of wood needed to create this exceptional expression.

To hold this unique whisky, the artisans at prestigious French crystal house Baccarat have skilfully created crystal decanters, each of which will be held within a presentation case designed and crafted by the accomplished furniture makers at LINLEY.

Finally, each decanter will be adorned with a solid silver stag, created by silversmiths Hamilton & Inches, holder of The Royal Warrant.

Richard Paterson, Master Distiller at The Dalmore said: “This is a special year for me so I chose to finesse this whisky in a champagne cask, as this magnificent drink is synonymous with celebratory occasions.

“Bringing the champagne together with Matusalem oloroso sherry and port is perhaps the greatest example to date of our ability to innovate in both maturation and cask finishing while preserving the signature flavours of The Dalmore.

“This whisky is exceptional, as are the luxurious and sophisticated finishes applied by the craftsmen at Domaine Henri Giraud, Baccarat, Linley and Hamilton & Inches. They are true masters of their art  and it is a pleasure to have worked with them to bring the 50 year old to life in such a magnificent way.”
