‘Chasing Whiskey’ Documentary Brings the Untold Story of Jack Daniel’s to Cinema Audiences Nationwide – May 11 Only- Whisky News

 

‘Chasing Whiskey’ Documentary Brings the Untold Story of Jack Daniel’s to Cinema Audiences Nationwide – May 11 Only

Journey Across the Globe With Director Greg Olliver, Country Music Legend Eric Church and Singer-Songwriter Shooter Jennings To Discover the Heart and History of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey

DENVER – February 19, 2020 – The new documentary “Chasing Whiskey – The Untold Story of Jack Daniel’s” premieres in movie theaters across the country as a one-night event on May 11. More than a simple narrative of the origins and impact of Jack Daniel’s, the documentary joins Tim Matheson, Shooter Jennings, Eric Church, John Grisham, Tina Sinatra and more, on a 57,000 mile journey across five countries and 17 time zones that is equal parts thought provoking, insightful, moving and hilarious.

Tickets for “Chasing Whiskey” can be purchased starting Friday, February 21, at www.FathomEvents.com and participating theater box offices.

Fathom Events and Movie City Films, in association with Evolve Studios, present “Chasing Whiskey” in more than 850 U.S. movie theaters on Monday, May 11 at 7:00 p.m. local time, through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network (DBN). A complete list of theater locations will be available February 21 on the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).

“Our filmmaking journey proved that Jack Daniel’s is easily the most iconic whiskey brand in the world. No matter where we went – from Tennessee to Japan to Cuba to the outback of Australia – and even Scotland – we always found someone who had a compelling, personal story to tell about Jack. It’s become part of popular culture everywhere,” said director Greg Olliver. “With unprecedented access that was given to us by Jack Daniel’s, we uncovered surprising stories that began even before Jack started making his own whiskey. We’re proud to present this insightful, whiskey-soaked adventure that tells the story of Jack that’s been 150+ years in the making.”

From the small town of Lynchburg, Tennessee, where every drop of Jack Daniel’s is made, to the outback of Australia, from Beverly Hills to the streets of Havana, Cuba, “Chasing Whiskey” documents a cultural exploration into why a world of people identifies with a distinctly American brand. Through it all, Jack Daniel’s serves as the compass on a journey that offers a unique glimpse into humanity, shared values and differing views, dreams and delusions.

“We are always eager to partner with new content providers to offer premium experiences on the big screen,” Fathom Events CEO Ray Nutt said. “This event gives fans across the country, from large cities to small towns, a chance to explore the history of Jack Daniel’s with some of their favorite actors and artists to learn how millions of people around the world from different backgrounds and cultures became a part of this iconic brand.”

Evan Williams Bourbon Experience Releases Annual Limited Edition Kentucky Derby Festival Bourbon Bottle

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – As an official sponsor of the Kentucky Derby Festival for the fourth consecutive year, the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience today released a special edition bottle of Evan Williams Single Barrel Bourbon with a commemorative 2020 Gold Pegasus Pin sealed in wax on the neck.The 2012 Vintage, 113 proof Bourbon is dipped in emerald green wax and features the 2020 Gold Pegasus Pin on the bottle neck

Dipped in a unique emerald green wax, the bottle features a special face label with the gold and green Kentucky Derby Festival logo and includes an official 2020 Pegasus Pin in an envelope attached to each bottle. Evan Williams Bourbon Experience Artisanal Distiller, Jodie Filiatreau, and Kentucky Derby Festival President and CEO, Matt Gibson, unveiled the official 2020 pin and limited-edition bottle at the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience by personally hand-dipping two of the 600 limited-edition bottles.

This product will be available for purchase at the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience for $74.99 and at select area retailers while supplies last. The limited edition 2012 vintage is bottled at 113 proof, commemorating both the 65th Kentucky Derby Festival plus the 48th Pegasus Pin anniversary. Each bottle of Evan Williams Single Barrel Vintage Bourbon contains the exact day it was put in an oak barrel to age, the barrel number, and the date it was bottled.

The Bourbon is matured in natural open-rick warehouses under the careful supervision of Heaven Hill’s Master Distiller, who monitors the progress of each year’s vintage to ensure it maintains its intended flavor profile and superb quality. Evan Williams Single Barrel Vintage has won five “Whiskey of the Year” awards and is one of the most critically-acclaimed specialty Bourbons produced by Heaven Hill Distillery, the world’s second largest holder of aging Bourbon.

“The Evan Williams Bourbon Experience is proud to partner yet again with the Kentucky Derby Festival to share the unique Kentucky spirit that makes this time of year so exciting in the Bluegrass State,” said Evan Williams Bourbon Experience Artisanal Distiller Jodie Filiatreau. “Join us as we raise a toast to Kentucky’s heritage and usher in the 2020 Kentucky Derby.”

Bringing the community together since 1956, the Kentucky Derby Festival has grown to become a whirlwind of more than 70 special events leading up to the big race in May. The Kentucky Derby Festival runs this year from April 16 – May 1. Pegasus Pins, which allow entry to many Derby Festival events, may be purchased exclusively at the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience through March 1st, prior to being available at other local retailers.

“This partnership with Evan Williams showcases two of Kentucky’s favorite things – the Derby Festival and bourbon,” said Matt Gibson, Kentucky Derby Festival President and CEO. “Just like the Pegasus Pins, we know fans will want to add this special edition bottle to their collection too.”

ABOUT THE EVAN WILLIAMS BOURBON EXPERIENCE: The Evan Williams Bourbon Experience® (www.EvanWilliamsBourbonExperience.com) celebrates the legacy of Evan Williams, Kentucky’s first commercial distiller, through an immersive visitor’s center experience which brings to life the history and tradition of Kentucky’s native spirit.

WATERFORD DISTILLERY ANNOUNCES OPEN DAY AND INAUGURAL BOTTLING LAUNCH – Irish Whiskey News

WATERFORD DISTILLERY ANNOUNCES OPEN DAY AND INAUGURAL BOTTLING LAUNCH – 50% OF BOTTLES SOLD WITHIN FIRST WEEKEND

Terroir-driven whisky producer, Waterford Distillery, has announced its hugely anticipated inaugural release – the first whisky since it began distillation following conversion from a Guinness brewery in 2015.

1ST CUVÉE: PILGRIMAGE is highly limited and will be available only at a distillery open day on Saturday 25th April. Tickets to the event are being sold via Eventbrite. In the first weekend of the event being announced, 50% of tickets to acquire 1ST CUVÉE: PILGRIMAGE had already sold, with the masterclass level ticket selling out within 45 minutes of the event being shared.

THE OPEN DAY

The open day is to celebrate Waterford Whisky’s coming of age, their Irish Single Malt Whisky’s debut, and they wanted to open their gates on Saturday 25th April to those curious to see what the distillery has been up to these last five years.

To provide a festival atmosphere, irrespective of the weather, the distillery has invited local food suppliers, brewers and musicians – and Waterford Whisky will also be available to taste for the first time.

1ST CUVÉE: PILGRIMAGE

There are 1,500 numbered bottles of 1ST CUVÉE: PILGRIMAGE bottled at 50% ABV.  

Only 1,000 of these are labelled “I Was There” and will be available to the public, strictly limited to one per individual. 

This limited edition, first bottling has a retail value of €150 and is only available on Saturday 25th April at the distillery as part of this event – it must be collected in person. It is for those who make the pilgrimage.

To mark this historic moment, the launch of Waterford Whisky, a limited edition commemorative bottling has been created by Head Distiller Ned Gahan. For 1ST CUVÉE: PILGRIMAGE Ned has brought together each of the 36 farms that Waterford distilled in their first year, each one location, captured in spirit, a unique Waterford distillate. Together, they make a complex and multi-layered single malt – the determined goal of their intriguing journey, a pioneering concept for the whisky industry.
