JD_RYE_750_FRONT_US_white_jpg

In support of the launch of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Rye, the brand has introduced new television creative which begins airing today across premium cable television networks such at AMC, Discovery, FS1 and TBS.

Every drop of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Rye is made in Lynchburg, Tennessee, charcoal mellowed and then matured in new American oak barrels crafted by its own coopers. Master Distiller Jeff Arnett and his team of whiskey makers have created a distinctive taste profile for a new rye whiskey like no other. Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Rye has a grain bill of 70 percent rye, 18 percent corn, 12 percent malted barley and is carefully charcoal mellowed for a finish that’s distinctly Jack.

The two new spots are linked below.

Woodinville Whiskey Company Straight Rye Whiskey – American Whiskey News

Woodinville Whiskey Company

STRAIGHT RYE WHISKEY

Surprise them with one of the only 100% straight rye whiskies produced: a whiskey with all the traditional rye spice and flavor that rye whiskey drinkers love. And then some…This 100% rye starts with pure, traditionally-grown rye cultivated exclusively for us on the Omlin family farm in Quincy, Washington. The grain is mashed, distilled & barreled in our Woodinville distillery – then trucked back over the Cascade Mountains to our private barrel houses, where Central Washington’s extreme temperature cycles promote the extraction of natural flavors from the oak.

Prior to being coopered, the barrel wood is seasoned in open air, rain, wind, sun and snow for eighteen months softening the wood’s harsh tannins. They are then slowly toasted and heavily charred to further enrich the wood’s desirable flavors. The result of this meticulous process yields a truly hand-crafted whiskey with aromas of cinnamon, clove, and fruit leather, and notes of caramel, wood spice, and honey on the palate with a long, memorable finish that will leave you anticipating your next sip.

The Countdown to Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge Begins – Scotch Whisky News

Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge arrival 2015

The countdown to Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge begins

On 12th December 2017, 28 teams from around the world will leave the shores of La Gomera, Canary Islands, to row 3,000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean to English Harbour, Antigua in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge.

Known as the world’s toughest row, the 2017 race includes teams from the UK, Ireland, USA, Spain, Romania, Switzerland, Netherlands, Norway, Australia, New Zealand, China, Antigua and Egypt. Competing as solos, pairs, trios or teams of four, each participant will burn around 8,000 calories a day and lose approximately 20% of their body weight over the duration of the race.

Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge arrival 2015

Teams will experience all of the challenges the Atlantic and nature’s elements can conjure, from tropical storms to 40ft waves and sweltering heat – rowing in shift patterns of two hours on, two hours off. Alongside the physical challenge, teammates will need to work together to stay mentally strong as they spend Christmas Day and New Year’s eve away from their families during this transformational adventure, which lasts anywhere between 35-90 days.

“To us, the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge is all about supporting and bringing to life the transformational experience and journey of each rower as they immerse themselves in the elements. Our founders, the MacAskill brothers, rowed from Eigg to Skye to found Talisker Distillery in Scotland almost 200 years ago and just like our founders’ row, this challenge represents adventure, strength of character and showcases what it means to be made by the sea.”
