  • Wild Turkey Longbranch Presented by Matthew McConaughey

    Wild Turkey Longbranch Presented by Matthew McConaughey

    Matthew McConaughey: What can’t he do? In addition to having mastered the art of acting in feature films, prestige television, and local TV commercials, and he also finds time to be Wild Turkey creative director. Now, he and Wild Turkey’s Master Distiller Eddie Russell have collaborated on a “rare, small-batch bourbon” called Wild Turkey Longbranch. Here’s the info […]

  • Budweiser Reserve Copper Lager Aged on Jim Beam Barrel Staves

    Budweiser Reserve Copper Lager Aged on Jim Beam Barrel Staves

    Beer and whiskey is mighty risky, but now there’s a way to bring the two somewhat spiritually together without having to employ any kind of spurious bourbon loophole. And anyway it’s moot, because no amount of folksy rhyming sayings can compete with the drawing power of a collaboration between Jim Beam and Budweiser: Budweiser Reserve […]

  • Big American Bourbon Soap by Duke Cannon Made with Real Bourbon

    Big American Bourbon Soap by Duke Cannon Made with Real Bourbon

    Nothing like a good soap, am I wrong? I’m also correct about the following assertion: There’s nothing like a good bourbon. I bring these two seemingly disparate points up in concert because the soapsmiths at Duke Cannon Supply Co. have finally brought the two together, in the form of their Big American Bourbon Soap. Duke […]

  • Ben & Jerry’s Urban Bourbon in the Works

    Ben & Jerry’s Urban Bourbon in the Works

    I didn’t know this until today, but evidently there are some pretty good investigative reporters working the ice cream beat out there (and you thought journalism was dead). But after someone at the Instagram account CandyHunting teased the upcoming release of Ben & Jerry’s Urban Bourbon ice cream, an intrepid reporter for Thrillist determined that […]

    Matthew McConaughey is Wild Turkey’s New Creative Director (Video)

    I doubt anyone is foolhardy enough to try to predict what Matthew McConaughey will do next anymore, but in case anyone like that is still out there, his latest project is sure to have thrown a wrench into their brackets. That’s because he is now, of all things, the new creative director for Wild Turkey bourbon, […]

  • Bulleit Bourbon Barrel Strength Frontier Whiskey

    Bulleit Bourbon Barrel Strength Frontier Whiskey

    Like a diamond bullet through the forehead, there’s Bulleit Bourbon, advertised as “Barrel Strength” Frontier Whiskey. What is “barrel strength?” It essentially means that this whiskey packs the same punch it would if you were to somehow break into Bulleit HQ and guzzle it straight from the barrel. That’s not necessary, though, since Bulleit Bourbon […]

  • Woodford Reserve 2015 Holiday Bottle

    Woodford Reserve 2015 Holiday Bottle

    Christmas has come and gone, but for the next few days we’re still in the midst of the holiday season, which means there’s still time to get wasted on yuletide cheer. The folks at Woodford Reserve realize this, and have released the Woodford Reserve 2015 Holiday Bottle for those late-season holiday parties. The Woodford Reserve […]

  • John E. Fitzgerald Very Special Reserve Bourbon From Heaven Hill

    John E. Fitzgerald Very Special Reserve Bourbon From Heaven Hill

    Any bourbon from the legendary defunct Stitzel-Weller Distillery is by definition “very special,” since it’s no longer producing anymore. But the Old Fitzgerald line is an even more limited edition from that famous product line, recently acquired by Heaven Hill. The company purchased 12 barrels of the stuff, which has now been aged for 20 years […]

  • ‘NEAT: The Story of Bourbon’ Gets Trailer (Video)

    ‘NEAT: The Story of Bourbon’ Gets Trailer (Video)

    The world of Kentucky bourbon is a fascinating one, at least to the select few bourbon enthusiasts out there. And there are apparently enough of those to warrant at least one feature-length documentary on the subject, called NEAT: The Story of Bourbon, a trailer for which has recently hit the internet. NEAT: The Story of […]
