First look at the Blindman Brewery May Long Double IPA

Grain Discovery and Blindman Brewing give beer lovers a new reason to celebrate this May 2-4 by launching the first commercialized traceability system for beer.

What makes me even more excited is knowing this is another step towards commercial blockchain application of this technology to the broader agriculture industry.”

— Rory O’Sullivan CEO of Grain Discovery

LACOMBE, ALBERTA, CANADA, May 13, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ --Grain DiscoverywithBlindman Breweryhas built an end-to-end digital system to trace Canadian grown malt barley through every stage of the value chain, from the field to your glass. The May Long Double IPA will be the first beer from the Blindman product line to migrate to the Grain Discovery platform, providing a QR code for customers to scan, enter their lot number and view every step of the production process in incredible detail.

“The craft beer industry is moving towards the development of terroir and provenance, much like todays wineries” said Kirk Zembal, Co-Founder of Blindman Brewing. “It is one thing to tell an origin story, but starting today, we will be the first brewery offering beer drinkers verified traceability in one hand for the pint they’re holding in the other.”

This project will deliver significant impact beyond transparency for the customer. By simplifying current manual based time-consuming processes - connect data silos, add value to certified seed, create a feedback loop back to the plant breeder, and will ultimately enable the Canadian barley industry to create global brand recognition.

ASLAN continues its momentum as a top sales training company according to Selling Power after being recognized for the ninth straight year.

To be one of the few sales training companies to make the Selling Power Top 25 all nine years of its existence is a testament to our Other-Centered® selling approach and our committed servant leaders.”

The list appears in the May/June 2021 issue of Selling Power magazine, which is published digitally.

The sales leaders who understand the importance of sales training are already on the upswing. Those who wait to invest in their team won’t be able to catch up.”

Tom Stanfill, Co-founder and CEO of ASLAN responded, “We are thrilled to be included in such a prestigious list for the 9th straight year.” Stanfill went on to say, “To be one of the few sales training companies to make the Selling Power Top 25 all nine years of its existence is a testament to our Other-Centered® approach to selling and we are humbled by the fact that Selling Power recognizes that.”

Exclusive: Constellation Invests in Donae Burston’s La Fête du Rosé

When Donae Burston began conversations with Constellation Brands in summer 2020, he saw the United States' largest maker and marketer of alcoholic beverages as the key to expanding his French rosé brand, La Fête du Rosé. Today, Constellation has announced it has purchased a minority stake in La Fête, marking the first move in its Focus on Minority Founders initiative to support Black-owned businesses over the next decade. The sale price and ownership percentage were not disclosed.

"I want to be the No. 1 luxury rosé wine brand in the world, full stop," Burston told Wine Spectator. "I think for me what was more important was the growth and to ensure that I had the resources needed to grow the brand with someone that could bring the tools I needed."

Since launching the Focus on Minority Founders program, the Constellation Ventures (CV) team has received many applications for partnership, and Burston is a prime example of what the investment team looks for.

"When I first had the opportunity to speak with Donae, you could hear the passion he had for the brand," Jennifer Evans, vice president of CV, said. "I speak to a lot of founders who have a vision, and that's wonderful, but what Donae had in addition to the vision was a real plan to execute."

Evans launched the Focus on Female Founders initiative in 2018 (a $100 million commitment to women business owners) and says it inspired her to push for diversity in the alcohol industry. She adds that in less than two years, her team was able to transform the CV portfolio from less than 20 percent female-led to now over 50 percent. "It shows that if you put your mind to it, in a short period of time you can actually make pretty meaningful change. So I'm really confident we'll be able to do the same with our Focus on Minority Founders program."

Review: Old Wm. Tarr Manchester Reserve Blended Whiskey 7 Years Old

Review: Old Wm. Tarr Manchester Reserve Blended Whiskey 7 Years Old
Old Wm. Tarr Manchester Reserve Blended Whiskey 7 Years Old

Christopher Null May 13, 2021

William Tarr is so old he abbreviates his name as Wm. And while Tarr had a distillery in Lexington 150 years ago, it’s been dark for more than a century. The brand was recently revived by a group of investors, and at the end of 2020 the operation released its first two products, both sourced Kentucky whiskeys from unnamed distilleries.

Manchester Reserve is an interesting product, a blend of a bourbon and a rye. The bourbon is 7 years old and made from a mash of 75% corn, 13% rye, and 12% malted barley. The rye is 8 years old, a blend of 37% corn, 51% rye, and 12% malted barley. The proportion of each whiskey in the final blend is not disclosed.

It’s a credible whiskey that drinks largely like a bourbon. The somewhat beefy nose offers notes of bacon fat and black pepper, and features a lightly herbal, incense-dusted aroma. The palate is big with caramel corn and peanut shells, presenting a fairly typical profile of a bourbon at this age level. An immense candy corn sweetness grows on the tongue, and it’s backed up by an ample spice character driven by the rye, with powdered ginger a significant factor. A heavy peanut butter note is evident on the finish, along with a gentle milk chocolate note. It’s a whiskey that benefits well from some water, although it’s a fairly straightforward experience regardless of the preparation.

The Essential New-School Fernet

For decades, the category of fernet has been synonymous with Fernet-Branca. The family-owned, 176-year-old Milan-based company has a long history of creative marketing and advertising that has landed their bracing and herbaceous elixir in over 160 countries across five continents. The global army of devoted bartenders who trade collectible challenge coins and rock countless tattoos of the brand’s logo attests to the enduring appeal of Fernet-Branca as the “bartender’s handshake” of choice. But Fernet-Branca is not a category unto itself. Historically, there have been other Italian-born expressions of fernet, as well as those crafted in Switzerland, the Czech Republic and Mexico. But even as the bold, medicinal, mint-forward profile of Fernet-Branca remains the touchstone for the category, a rising tide of new-school producers is crafting distinctive variations that challenge the old guard and plumb the depths of the category as a whole.

As an amaro, the question of what makes a fernet a fernet is a tricky one. The category lacks a clear definition and rules for ingredients, production methods and flavor profiles. A few hallmarks, however, include an elevated level of alcohol (typically 39 percent or higher), a dark brown to blackish color, less sugar and a more bitter profile than most amari, and a number of common ingredients, including aloe ferox, chamomile, eucalyptus, mint, myrrh, rhubarb root and saffron.

Since 2011, when Leopold Bros. let the genie out of the bottle with the release of Fernet Leopold Highland Amaro, the first American-made fernet since Prohibition, the category has been exploding. In 2014, Chicago’s Letherbee Fernet gave Malört (a Windy City darling) a run for its money, becoming a staple behind bars across the city, inspiring even more domestic takes on the Italian liqueur. In Washington, D.C., in 2016, Francesco Amodeo debuted his Don Ciccio & Figli Amaro Don Fernet. Its surprisingly low ABV (25 percent) made it inherently approachable while maintaining a pronounced bitterness, with an unexpected twist courtesy of unusual ingredients like ginger and dark chocolate.

Here’s a lineup of new-school fernet that’s reimagining the bitter, bracing category.

Arcane Fernet

Where it’s made: Brooklyn, New York
What’s in it: 27 botanicals, including citrus peel (three varieties), gentian root, hops, licorice root, wild mint
ABV: 39 percent

WiV Technology

WiV Technology brings fine wine trading to Arkane Network's 200,000 users, investigates the potential of the metaverse to help vineyards with pandemic recovery.

Arkane’s tools make it simple for people to trade wine on the blockchain... Their metaverse development is also very interesting, because we believe that it’s a perfect fit for tokenised fine wine.”

— Håkon Harberg, co-founder of WiV Technology

OSLO, NORWAY, May 13, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- WiV Technology, a blockchain-based trading platform for unique assets, has added the Arkane Network to the growing list of marketplaces where people can access tokenised fine wine. The addition of Arkane’s capabilities to the WiV platform makes it simple for wine collectors to create wallets and access a marketplace of 200,000 other Arkane wallet users globally, even if they have no prior experience of the blockchain or the crypto sector.

WiV offers a fast-going platform for tokenised fine wine. Bottles or cases of wine are allocated an exclusive non-fungible token (NFT) which can then be traded at a growing number of blockchain enabled marketplaces. The physical wine is stored at professionally managed wine cellars globally, protecting the investment, while the use of the blockchain-based NFTs makes wine trading quicker, cheaper and more transparent. As a result, WiV is an attractive entry point to the wine sector which has traditionally had high barriers to entry but consistently out-performed many other asset classes.

Glencairn designs luxury decanter for rare Taylor's port

Glencairn designs luxury decanter for rare Taylor's port

Port brand Taylor's has partnered with Glencairn Crystal to produce a bespoke decanter for a special new release.

The release, Taylor's 1896 Single Harvest Tawny Port, was produced in one of the 19th century's best harvests and is drawn from reserves of cask-aged ports maturing in the company's cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia. It the latest in a long line of fine and rare vintages for which the Taylor, Fladgate and Yeatman port house is renowned.

Taylor's commissioned Glencairn to create a befitting decanter for the piece - the third such project the companies have partnered on, following the releases of the rare 1855 Scion Port in 2010 and Taylor's 1863 Single Harvest Port in 2014.

To accompany the 1896 Single Harvest Port decanter - which features extra decoration to celebrate the rarity of the liquid - the craftpeople at Glencairn also designed an elegant seven-sided stopper for the decanter, each side of which is engraved.

The decanter is presented in a cherrywood case, with each box containing a certificate signed by Taylor's managing director Adrian Bridge. A total of 1,700 units have been produced and will be available in specialist retailers.

Heaven Hill Distillery Unveils First Bottled Bourbon from Artisanal Distillery at Evan Williams Bourbon Experience – American Whiskey News

Heaven Hill Distillery Unveils First Bottled Bourbon from Artisanal Distillery at Evan Williams Bourbon Experience – American Whiskey News

Heaven Hill Distillery Unveils First Bottled Bourbon from Artisanal Distillery at Evan Williams Bourbon Experience 

Square 6 pays homage to the plot of land that housed Kentucky’s first commercial distillery

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Heaven Hill Distillery today announced the launch of Square 6 Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, the first bottled Bourbon produced at its artisanal distillery located in the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience at 528 W. Main Street in Louisville, Ky. Square 6 designates the original plot of land where Evan Williams built Kentucky’s first commercial distillery in 1783, sharing the same block on Louisville’s Whiskey Row where the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience first opened in 2013. This initial launch from the one barrel per day, hand-crafted, copper pot still facility is a testament to Heaven Hill Distillery’s commitment to quality, craft and patience. Square 6 is only the beginning in a series of craft products to come from the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience.

As a High Rye Bourbon, the Square 6 mashbill consists of 52 percent corn, 35 percent rye and 13 percent malted barley, a new Bourbon recipe under the Heaven Hill Distillery portfolio. Artisanal Distiller Jodie Filiatreau distills one barrel of American Whiskey per day at the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience and is continually crafting innovative mashbills and tweaking the hand-crafted process for each new recipe. Since the building of the craft distillery, Heaven Hill has been patiently waiting as the barrels quietly age to maturation. During this aging process, a team of master tasters samples each recipe at various stages until that specific mashbill has been deemed to have achieved a taste profile worthy of bottling. Square 6 High Rye Bourbon is the first result of this process and the first bottling from the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience stills. A testament to Heaven Hill’s patience and hallmark extra-aging, Square 6 High Rye Bourbon was aged to perfection before being bottled at 95 proof. Square 6 has a golden amber color, with notes of tobacco, fig and honey on the nose, earthy notes with cardamom and cinnamon to taste, and a short, dry finish.

“Today marks another milestone in the educational, interactive experiences offered at the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience as we can now experience the aroma and taste of this truly hand-crafted process from the grain to the glass,” said Max L. Shapira, Heaven Hill Distillery President. “From the first day Artisanal Distiller Emeritus Charlie Downs turned on the stills nearly eight years ago to Artisanal Distiller Jodie Filiatreau patiently waiting years for this product to come of age in the barrel, today we celebrate Heaven Hill’s commitment to quality and attention to detail.”

WORLDS FIRST WHISKY SYMPHONY? – Norwegian Whisky News

WORLDS FIRST WHISKY SYMPHONY? – Norwegian Whisky News

WORLDS FIRST WHISKY SYMPHONY?

Arctic composer writes a symphony based on a Whisky brand.

The arctic composer, Alexander Aarøen Pedersen, was inspired by the stories related to the “Bivrost brand” and decided to compose a symphony. Bivrost is how the Norse mythology explains the Aurora Borealis, and how it functions as a magical bridge between the mortal world and Asgard, the world of the Norse gods.

The symphony tells a story of a young Viking’s journey from a desolate little town in Northern Norway, to the mighty realm of Asgard and his final battle during Ragnarok. The road is long, and his soul has to dance three times before he can rest. During the journey he faces the fierce gods of Norse mythology and ventures over the northern light bridge, “Bivrost”.

Pedersen worked on the symphony for 2 years. In addition to being the inspiration, Aurora Spirit Distillery sponsored parts of the development and recording, which was done with Arctic Philharmonic Orchestra in the arctic city of Tromsø, Norway. Pedersen has conducted and recorded self-composed music in Los Angeles, where he has also been an apprentice to the famous composer Richard Bellis (Disney, Stephen King’s IT).

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 384: Coal Ila 6 Year Old 2013 Charred Wine Hogshead

Mark Dermul, Belgian whisky blogger, goes for an independent Caol Ila. The Nectar, Belgian importer, selected this so-called Charred Wine Hogshead from the stables of Signatory, near Pitlochry. It was filled in June 2013 with spirit from Mark’s favorite Islay distillery and bottled in September 2019. This young, powerful Coal Ila is hence only 6 years old. The ABV makes you wonder if you should have some water handy.

Review: Bespoken Spirits Light Whiskey and Bourbon

Review: Bespoken Spirits Light Whiskey and Bourbon
Bespoken Spirits Bourbon Whiskey

Bespoken Spirits, like Lost Spirits, Endless West, and Terressentia, is a startup operation built around the idea of making spirits — solely whiskey, in Bespoken’s case — that tastes old. The catch is that it goes “from concept to bottle” in about a week, thanks to the magic of technology. Much like Lost Spirits (though it’s not the same tech), Bespoken’s process involves heat and pressure applied to young distillate and a tiny piece of wood, which turns it into something that tastes like a “real” whiskey in a matter of hours. (Unlike most of these operations, Bespoken seems to rely on immature but partially aged spirits to start things off, instead of using new-make white dog.)

The sell here is that the aging process isn’t just much faster, it’s far, far cheaper than traditional whiskeymaking. And it also gives the company a lot of creative freedom. Bespoken says it has generated over 1000 styles of whiskey in the last few years, six of which it has released on the market under its own brand. (As well, the Menlo Park, California-based operation also provides its services to other distilleries as a consultancy.)

Also, Derek Jeter is an investor!

With all of that prologue, let’s give two of Bespoken’s products a try and see how this Quick Whiskey actually tastes. Products (all sold as 375mls) are individually numbered with batch and bottle number.
