The American-Made Heroes Foundation Fund, now in its second year, will award support through the 2021 Veteran Community Action grants.

The 2021 American Hero edition packaging received the same new look as the Evan Williams Bourbon family, first announced in September 2020. The new signature bottle is complemented by a curved blue label adorned with red and white stripes and stars, and blue capsule featuring “Evan Williams” on the bottle neck. Proudly displayed on the side of each bottle is one of the brand’s key taglines “American Owned, American Made, American Proud” celebrating Evan Williams’ legacy as Kentucky’s first commercial distiller.

Locogen and Logan Energy help Arbikie Highland Estate Distillery move towards Net-Zero Dram – Scotch Whisky News

On Burns Night (January 25th) we were delighted to announce that Locogen’s client, the Arbikie Highland Estate Distillery, had won Phase 1 funding from the Green Distilleries competition run by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) to investigate switching from gas oil to hydrogen for their primary process fuel.

So it’s fitting that, on World Whisky Day, we can announce that after a successful Phase 1 feasibility study, Arbikie are applying for Phase 2 funding – and a share of a £10 million funding pot – to implement zero-carbon green hydrogen as their primary process fuel.

The Green Distilleries fund aims to help distilleries cut CO2 emissions by one million tonnes, contributing to Scotland’s national target to be carbon neutral by 2045, with each distillery deploying innovative green solutions in order to achieve these ambitious goals.

Arbikie Highland Estate Distillery are determined to find a low carbon alternative to gas oil to further improve their already impressive sustainability and environmental credentials.

Renewable energy specialist Locogen and hydrogen technology expert Logan Energy are therefore partnering with Arbikie to deliver an innovative solution, using green hydrogen produced onsite using electrolysis from wind and solar generation as the zero-carbon fuel for the distillation process.

K&L Exclusive Back In Stock: Michel Couvreur’s Inimitable Peated Malt Whisky – Whisky News



K&L Exclusive Sherry-Aged Whisky: Michel Couvreur’s “Peaty Overaged”
Michel Couvreur “Peaty Overaged” K&L Exclusive Malt Whisky (750ml) ($79.99)
“…one of the most authentic and absolutely delicious malts on the market…This new batch of Couvreur is better than ever!” — David Othenin-Girard, K&L Spirits Buyer

In their constant search for the world’s most unique and compelling spirits, our buying team routinely discovers truly stupendous offerings exclusive to K&L. One of our favorites over the years has been the Michel Couvreur “Peaty Overaged.” What’s truly remarkable is where this inimitable dram comes from—a deep, dark cellar in the heart of Burgundy. The late Michel Couvreur arrived here in the 1960s and set about acquiring impressive stocks of new-make single malt Scotch and cultivating one of the most well-sourced sherry-cask regimens in the whisky world. Now produced by his long-time apprentice, this peated K&L Exclusive is, as spirits buyer David Othenin-Girard describes, a “wildly high-quality…whisky with a French sensibility.” For any lover of incredibly expressive sherry cask whisky, this is a must-try bottling that will leave you stunned, thrilled, and totally addicted to the style that is none other than Michel Couvreur.

Michel Couvreur “Peaty Overaged” K&L Exclusive Malt Whisky (750ml) ($79.99)

The chance to work with Michel Couvreur on a special K&L whisky project was something that we had been dreaming of for years. We had heard the stories. This innovative Belgian had moved to Burgundy in the ’60s, carved out a wine cellar inside a mountain, only to fill it with Scottish single malt whisky instead of Pinot Noir. He set up camp in Beaune, ordered new-make spirit to be delivered by tanker, and drove down to Jerez himself, selecting his own sherry butts to ensure the finest quality casks for his contracted spirit. Unfortunately, Michel Couvreur passed away in 2013 from pancreatic cancer, thus ending the career of one of the industry’s most courageous pioneers. Luckily for us, however, apprentice Jean-Arnaud has carried on after studying under Michel for more than a decade. When we visited the underground cave, we were all in total awe. The tunnels of dripping stone go on forever, and the amount of whisky stored in this secret lair is jawdropping. We put our trust completely in Jean-Arnaud and are happy we did. Our peated version of the incredible sherry expression is a seamless creation that drinks like the best version of Johnnie Black ever, mixed with the most supple and soft expressions of Macallan. It’s a lush, unfiltered, creamy, caramel-laden dream of a whisky composed only of malts 12 years and older. There’s a bit of peat on the finish, but the soft sherry is the star. (NOTE: do NOT cut the hard wax seal—use a wine opener to go through it)

Review: Runamok Maple Syrups and Bitters

Runamok Syrup Maple Old Fashioned

Runamok is a producer of traditional maple syrup in Vermont, and the company recently branched out into cocktail ingredients, where maple has long been popular. Today we take a look at six different Runamok products — four syrups and two types of bitters — all made with glorious tree juice at their core (and no refined sugar).

Runamok Syrup Maple Old Fashioned – This orange-laced syrup evokes the immediate essence of gingersnaps, with a slight fruitiness in the form of figs and dates underneath. The maple syrup character is present but less overbearingly sweet than you might expect, offering a touch of earthiness to a truly unique palate. It really shines with whiskey, melding beautifully with caramel and chocolate notes and bringing out the fruitiness in the spirit. A- / $17 per 250ml bottle

Runamok Syrup Maple Ginger Mule – A much different experience, this is intense with both ginger and lime, giving it a sharp acidity that rapidly washes away much of the sweetness underneath — although some notes of caramel emerge on the finish. I struggled to find the right balance with this one in a cocktail made with vodka and sparkling water, but you might have better luck. B / $17 per 250ml bottle

Runamok Syrup Maple Smoked Old Fashioned – Made with cherry juice (or orange essence, depending on if you believe the bottle or the website), and tons of smoked pecan wood. A bit of a butterscotch kick on the finish. While I love a smoky cocktail, the impact here is a bit overpowering, and in a mixed drink I might consider tempering the smoke effect by going half and half with the standard Old Fashioned syrup (or just plain simple syrup). Even then, I think the non-smoked recipe pairs better with whiskey. B+ / $17 per 250ml bottle

Hubert’s Favorite One True Zin

Opici Wines & Spirits has introduced Hubert’s Favorite One True Zin.

This organic Italian zinfandel (Primitivo) is named in honor of the company’s late founder, Hubert Opici.

Hubert had an appreciation for California and Italian winemaking, and an affinity for zinfandel, the company says. Certified organic, non-GMO and vegan, this wine is from the Salento region within Puglia.

One True Zin has notes of plum, cherry, marmalade and spice, the company reports. Stylistically, this zinfandel merges old world and new world to create an easy-drinking red that pairs perfectly with steak, burgers and barbeque.

“My grandfather will always be an inspiration and a driving force behind what we do,” says Don Opici, managing director of Opici Wines & Spirits. “He emphasized the importance of quality and value, and One True Zin perfectly embodies that sentiment. Our family is thrilled to launch this project to further honor his legacy.”

Review: 2020 Gaia Pinot Noir Rose Organic

2020 Gaia Pinot Noir Rose Organic

Rob Theakston May 21, 2021


The Gaia collection hails from Domaine Bousquet’s estate vineyards in Tupungato, named after one of the highest mountains in the Americas near the Argentina-Chile border. Let’s go to the press release for a more formal introduction:

“…[Gaia] references the ancient Greek goddess of the earth, and an inspiration for the Bousquet family from the outset, going back to the late 1990s when as visionaries and intrepid pioneers they left their native France to buy and plant in virgin land, high in the remote Andean foothills of Argentina. Today Argentina’s foremost name in organically grown wines, Domaine Bousquet has farmed organically from the get-go, and as such the Gaia collection is made entirely from organically grown grapes.”

Lively and bright, appropriate for a spring brunch or outside patio dining, this 100% pinot noir has a delicate nose of ripe strawberries, magnolia flowers, and a faint note of pear. The palate is surprisingly rich, almost full-bodied, and favors fruit elements over floral but never goes too far out of balance. Stone fruit tempers the strawberry notes evident on the nose, along with a gentle hint of pepper and mineral elements. The dry finish returns the floral influence but also provides light acidity presenting a very clean conclusion. We gifted a bottle at a (very socially distanced) Kentucky Derby party at the time of this writing, and it was the first bottle on the table finished, phones grabbing snapshots of the label.

Kendall Jenner’s 818 Tequila Gains Distribution through Southern Glazer’s

Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits has signed a national alignment agreement with 818 Tequila, the brand founded by Kendall Jenner.

The main pillars of 818 are to promote environmental sustainability and support community initiatives that give back to the people of Jalisco, the company says, while protecting the land they rely on for their livelihoods. This includes using recycled agave fibers to create building materials to provide housing for local families in need.

“I’m incredibly proud of the product we have created with our team in Mexico and am honored that they have joined us on this journey,” says Jenner. “Their mentorship and support are important as we build 818 into one of the world’s leading tequila brands. That’s why I am so thrilled to work with Southern Glazer’s and their outstanding sales teams to help introduce these tequilas to both off and on-premise customers. I’m excited for more people to be able to try it in the coming months.”

Southern Glazer’s will launch distribution of 818 in Kendall Jenner’s home state of California, and then continue to roll the brand out across the U.S. throughout the summer and in the months to come.

The 818 portfolio includes three variations, with company-provided tasting notes:

Heaven’s Door Releases The Master Blenders’ Edition, Finished in Redbreast

Heaven’s Door Whiskey, the brand owned by Bob Dylan, has unveiled a limited-edition 10-year-old bourbon finished in Redbreast Irish whiskey casks.

This first-ever collaboration for both brands was the idea of master blenders Ryan Perry of Heaven’s Door and Billy Leighton of Redbreast Irish Whiskey. Hence, the release’s apt name: The Master Blenders’ Edition.

The Master Blenders’ Edition features Heaven’s Door 10-year straight bourbon finished in Redbreast’s signature single pot still casks for 15 months, extracting flavor from single pot Irish whiskey and former Spanish sherry.

The end result is a taste profile with prominent notes of nuts, spice and leather, the company reports, as well as the influence of sherry, citrus, dark fruit and a subtle sweetness of Yellow Man from the Redbreast casks.

The Master Blenders’ Edition comes in Heaven’s Door’s signature bottle, featuring a new gate design created by Dylan in his Black Buffalo Ironworks studio, as well as Redbreast’s iconic Robin.
