March Whisk(e)y Madness Bracket Challenge

The March Whisk(e)y Madness Bracket Challenge kits are ready to go! If you were lucky enough to get one, you can stop in anytime to pick it up! Inside each kit you will find 16 bottles of whiskey and card with a QR Code to take you to the website for voting and tracking. You will be able to start voting for the first round on Thursday, and voting will end on Tuesday, with results being posted to the same page on Wednesday! This will be a ton of fun, but make sure you don’t drink the whole bottle in the first round, until after the results are released, then you can finish the loser!

ChickenCock Cotton Club 20-Year-Old Rye Whisky and New Riff Single Barrel Bourbon – JJ’s 2nd Edition

We received TWO very special whiskies last week. New Riff Single Barrel Bourbon – JJ’s 2nd Edition was released on Wednesday. This delicious whiskey is selling for $63.99/bottle (JJ’s VIP Price) and is now the key component to our 3.0ld Fashioned in JJ’s Bar! Further, we are using our LAST barrel of JJ’s Single Barrel Barrel Aged Maple Syrup as well, which was aged in our New Riff Single Barrel – 1st Edition. Kinda cool? You can also pick up some of that batch of syrup along with our current release, aged in Old Elk Bourbon Barrel.

The second whiskey, ChickenCock Cotton Club 20-Year-Old Canadian Rye Whisky. The JJ’s VIP Price on this bad boy is $479.99, and we did not get much. There is a great deal of excitement surrounding the release of this whisky, so if you are remotely interested in collected whiskies, you will want to stop in and snag a bottle before it is gone!
