Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye showcases the rye whisky that has been such an integral component of the Crown Royal Deluxe blend since 1939.

Jim Murray’s Whiskey Bible 2016

In 2014 the whisky world was shaken when the award unexpectedly went to a Japanese single malt. Whisky authority Jim Murray, who tasted more than 1,000 new whiskies before making his 2015 announcement, said, “Last year people were shocked when I gave Yamazaki the award—until they tasted it. Then they saw it was not the affront to Scotch they first thought and something truly extraordinary. This year, doubtless there will be many more eyebrows raised because rarely is Canada mentioned when it come to the world’s top whiskies. But, again, I have no doubt people finding the bottling I tasted will be blown away with this whisky’s uncompromising and unique beauty. It certainly puts the rye into Canadian rye. Continue reading

Diageo Announces Restoration Project at Louisville’s Historic Stitzel-Weller Distillery

Diageo announced that it plans to invest an initial $2 million to develop the Stitzel-Weller Visitor Center at Louisville’s legendary distillery.  The company will renovate the original administrative building to bring to life the history of the Stitzel-Weller Distillery through artifacts from the site’s archives; a whiskey education section; an homage to the people, land  and water of Kentucky; and a celebration of the heritage, brands and people behind Diageo’s award-winning collection of American whiskeys. The Visitor Center will showcase the Bulleit brand as well as Diageo’s evolving craft whiskey portfolio,

including the just-launched Orphan Barrel whiskeys, Barterhouse and Old Blowhard.

Another of our state’s storied distilleries will get new life thanks to Diageo’s investment, which will attract even more bourbon fans to Kentucky,” said Governor Steve Beshear.  “We’re excited about this project and for the continued growth of Kentucky’s bourbon businesses.”

The Stitzel-Weller Distillery in Shively, opened on Derby Day in 1935. For four decades, it thrived and was known for making the finest bourbon in the world.   On June 30th, 1972, the company was sold. After a series of name and ownership changes, Stitzel-Weller is now owned by Diageo.  Though the site today is operational in that it stores and rests barrels of various whiskies, Stitzel-Weller has not been a functioning distillery since 1992. The company aims to begin the project immediately, and finish the first phase in time for the Kentucky Derby Day this May.  The company plans to complete the Visitor Center, welcome center and gift shop by this summer.

Diageo’s creation of a Visitor Center at Stitzel-Weller is exciting news for the city of Louisville, the state ofKentucky and Bourbon lovers around the world,” said Greg Fischer, Mayor of Louisville.  “It is another great step to enhancing the city’s Bourbon tourism efforts.”

We are excited to partner with Diageo on this exciting tourism opportunity that will bring to life the rich distilling history of Shively,” said Sherry Conner, Mayor of Shively, the suburb of Louisville, where Stitzel-Weller is located.

Over the last year, Diageo’s momentum in American Whiskey has accelerated with both flagship and new-to-world brands. Bulleit has captured the imagination of bartenders and consumers across the country.  According to the latest Impact Hot Brand rankings, Bulleit is America’s fastest growing Bourbon and number one Rye.

Recently, Diageo introduced the Orphan Barrel Whiskey Distilling Company, an endeavor to rescue long forgotten barrels of rare and delicious whiskey and share them with discerning adult fans. The first two variants include the 20-year-old Barterhouse Whiskey and the 26-year-aged Old Blowhard Whiskey. Both brands are expected to begin appearing on select shelves throughout the U.S. in March 2014 under strict allocation due to limited supply.

Stitzel-Weller is one of the most significant and historic parts of Kentucky’s bourbon heritage and we are honored to be restoring it to share it with Louisville residents and visitors,” said Larry Schwartz, President, Diageo North America. “We are pleased to be investing in the community and this important site.  This is another step in our support of and leadership within the American craft whiskey movement and we hope that the Stitzel-Weller Visitor Center will soon be included on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail.”

 

DIAGEO Launches Orphan Barrel Whiskey Distilling Company To Share Rare Spirits

First Releases to Include 20+ Year Old Barterhouse(TM) Whiskey and Old Blowhard(TM) Whiskey

From Tennessee to Kentucky to Ireland, stories of old whiskies forgotten in the back of rickhouses and warehouses drift among distillers the world over.  From lunch breaks to happy hours, their debates over which whiskey would taste best has become the stuff of legend.  To offer resolution and introduce a new line of rare spirits to a growing base of whiskey aficionados, DIAGEO today announced the official start of the Orphan Barrel Whiskey Distilling Company.

The goal of The Orphan Barrel Whiskey Distilling Company is to locate lost and forgotten barrels of whiskey from around the world and share them with discerning adult fans.  The first two variants to be released from the company will include the 20-year-old Barterhouse Whiskey and the 26-year-aged Old Blowhard Whiskey.  (PRNewsFoto/DIAGEO)

The Orphan Barrel Whiskey Distilling Company –inspired by creativity, delicious whiskey, good times and great stories–is an endeavor to locate lost and forgotten barrels of whiskey from around the world, rescue them and share them with discerning adult fans  .  The project is owned and run by DIAGEO and has its headquartered in Tullahoma, Tenn.

Currently, The Orphan Barrel Whiskey Distilling Company has released two variants – 20-year-old Barterhouse Whiskey and 26-year-aged Old Blowhard Whiskey.  Both brands are expected to begin appearing on select shelves throughout the U.S. in March 2014 under strict allocation due to limited supply. As new and interesting whiskies are discovered, they will be added to the family to provide adult consumers a great selection of rare whiskies.

Barterhouse Whiskey stocks were discovered in old warehouses at the Stitzel-Weller facility in Louisville, Ky.  Rumor has it warehouse workers have already begun lining up for the first taste of this beautiful whiskey with a soft nose reminiscent of warm spice, biscuit and buttercream.  The whiskey’s mellow taste includes notes of roasted grain, charred oak and a brown sugar finish.  Barterhouse Whiskey is bottled in Tullahoma, Tenn. and will be expected to sell for a suggested retail price of $75.

Old Blowhard Whiskey was also found at Stitzel-Weller and is hand bottled in Tullahoma.  At 26-years-old, the whiskey contains exuberant, rich flavors with undertones of smoke and honey followed by a gentle finish – dry and spicy with a hint of orange peel.  Carrying a suggested retail price of $150, Old Blowhard Whiskey is meant to be sipped slowly and best enjoyed among gregarious friends and unyielding debates.

The whiskey warehouses and rickhouses these spirits come from are special places filled with the incredible smells of seasoned oak, rough textures of weathered wood and amazing tastes of precious liquid,” said Ewan Morgan, Master of Whiskey for DIAGEO.  “It’s every worker’s dream of finding that forgotten barrel of delicious whiskey and sharing it with their friends.  That’s exactly what we’re doing.”

Like the rickhouse and warehouse workers who uncover them and the consumers who drink them, Orphan Barrel Whiskies have distinctive personalities in taste and packaging.  Barterhouse Whiskey packaging nods to the inspiration behind the whiskey’s name.  A vintage khaki and brown label features a sly fox front and center after he’s made a smooth deal at the local trading post.  Because when there’s no money on the table, Barterhouse Whiskey turns give and take into an adventure in provocation and persuasion.

Based in a beautiful nautical blue, the Old Blowhard Whiskey label features a powerful whale exhaling through its blowhole before launching into another opinionated debate.  Powerful fonts rooted in swagger proclaim the spirit’s impressive age statement and status as a Kentucky Bourbon.

Since the alliance began in 2007, Cîroc has grown from just 50,000 cases a year into a nearly 2 million case brand. The joint venture acquisition of DeLeón will allow the brand to benefit from Diageo’s strong distribution network, supply chain, and marketing capability and Sean Combs’ access to influencers and proven track record of marketing luxury lifestyle brands.

The company, based in New York, NY, is now a partner with Diageo on DeLeón Tequila. Blue Flame, another of Combs’s enterprises, has collaborated with Diageo in marketing Cîroc ultra-premium vodka in the US since 2007.

DeLeón is a 100% blue weber agave boutique tequila brand with a loyal following in Hollywood and the U.S. music industry. The brand has strong appeal with status-conscious consumers who choose spirit brands as part of their luxury lifestyle. The acquisition of DeLeón will accelerate Diageo’s share of ultra-premium and above ($40+) tequila, which is the second-fastest growing segment of the tequila category in the U.S. DeLeón has five variants with suggested retail prices ranging from $120.00 to over $1,000.00. The brand has been distributed in 18 U.S. states and Washington, D.C.

The joint venture with Combs Wine & Spirits and its purchase of DeLeón is Diageo’s latest step towards returning to a leading position in tequila in North America,” said Larry Schwartz, President, Diageo North America. “Expanding our relationship with Sean Combs into tequila was a natural choice given Sean’s ability to galvanise support for luxury brands, as we’ve seen with our work together on Cîroc. Ultra-premium and above tequila is a very exciting segment – we already have a strong brand there with Don Julio and are pleased to complement that offering with DeLeón.” Continue reading
