RELEASE NEWS: APPLE BRANDY, DRY RYE REPOSADO GIN & BALLER SINGLE MALT WHISKEY
April 2019 | Our 2019 release of California Reserve Apple Brandy has started rolling out—and will be shipping to more states as we get deeper into spring. The 2019 release is a field blend of local apples sourced from a family-owned farm in Mendocino County (as were previous releases), and aged 2–7 years in used American whiskey casks and used American and French oak wine casks.
We’ve also been going strong on Dry Rye Reposado Gin production this year because we know how many of you have fallen in love with this genre-bending barrel-aged spirit. Due to the hard work of our production team, bottles should now be easier to find than ever before. (Thanks, team!)
And last but not least, we're greatly expanding our Baller Single Malt Whiskey distribution this spring—to twice as many states as before! In addition to all the states Baller has already been available (AZ, CA, CO, FL, GA, IL, MA, NJ, NV, NY, RI, TX, and WA), Baller is now also beginning to roll out to CT, DE, HI, IN, KY, LA, MD, MI, MO, MN, NH, upstate NY, PA, SC, TN, and WI.
Since we don’t have access to retailers' real-time inventory, we unfortunately aren’t able to pinpoint where and when bottles of these spirits will be available. As always, our advice is to contact your favorite brick-and-mortar spirits specialty shops to let them know of your interest.
