Angry Orchard Recalls Hard Cider Over Potential Bottle Explosion

The company said two batches of the hard cider may be showing signs of refermentation in the bottle, which could result in increased carbonization levels. That could cause overflowing upon opening or a bursting bottle under increased pressure.

New JD Products

Brown-Forman is expanding its Jack Daniel’s Sinatra Select brand, available at 45% abv and priced around $200, with a more limited label this fall called Sinatra Century (this is the centenary year of the singer’s birth), distilled at 50% abv and priced at $500 a 750-ml. The limited release is already shipping to travel retail and is expected to be on U.S. shelves by October. For the Sinatra series, Jack Daniel’s has employed special barrels with grooves on the staves to draw more whiskey into the wood, explains senior vice president and chief marketing officer John Hayes.

Another product, Jack Daniel’s No. 27 Gold, is currently sold only in travel retail but likely to be released into the U.S. market by year-end, Hayes says. No. 27 Gold is bottled at 80-proof with extra maturation in maple barrels, as well as a second charcoal filtering, resulting in a lighter and sweeter whiskey originally aimed at the Asian market. The price is likely to be around $100.

Looking ahead to next year, Hayes said a new rye product, called Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Rye, will be released in limited quantities at around $50. Two other ryes, the Jack Daniel’s Unaged Rye ($70) and the Jack Daniel’s Rested Rye ($60) are no longer being actively marketed by Brown-Forman.

New Jim Beam Apple

Beam Suntory has branched out with a new flavored offering in the Jim Beam lineup with the launch of Jim Beam Apple. The 70-proof Bourbon-based liqueur, a blend of apple liqueur and Kentucky straight Bourbon, joins the brand’s other flavored offshoots, including Jim Beam Honey, Red Stag by Jim Beam, Jim Beam Maple and Kentucky Fire, which debuted last August and hit 88,000 cases by the end of 2014, according to Impact Databank.

The reviews we make using Quini are meant to be shared, and if you choose you may follow one another through the Quini app.

Quini is more than just recording whether you like or do not like a wine. Quini’s five step tasting process reminds and teaches how to focus on all aspects of the wine to develop a complete impression of the wine. By focusing on each the eye, nose, mouth, finish and an overall opinion you are able to pinpoint what makes each wine memorable and appealing or not. Quini provides you a record of regions, varietals and wineries the you tend to enjoy the most and keeps a history of all your tastings. With the detail provided in each wine tasting Quini is also able to provide incredibly personalized recommendations specific to your own wine palate.

For every 400 tasting reviews completed in the WineUp, Quini will ship 6 special wines not readily available in the local area –These wines will be raffled off to club members that attend the Wineups.

Group members have the opportunity to receive entries for a wine tasting tour by reviewing wines outside of the wine tasting groups and posting them to social media. For each review posted to social media and noted by Quini (outside of the regular monthly WineUp tastings), you are entered to win a fully paid, multi-day wine trip along with a guest. Value up to $5,000! This year it’s three nights, four days in the beautiful Okanagan Valley region, BC, Canada.

Bacardi Rolls Out Bonnie Rose White Whiskey

Bacardi Ltd. has unveiled Bonnie Rose, a new Tennessee white corn whiskey brand. Produced using an 80% white corn mash and copper pot stills, the Bonnie Rose lineup makes its debut with a pair of 35%-abv fruit flavored entries, Orange Peel and Spiced Apple. Both retail at around $19 a bottle. The range, which is being backed by a digital content series throughout the summer and fall, will initially launch across Nashville, Tennessee, with a nationwide expansion to follow shortly after. Along with Bonnie Rose, Bacardi’s American whiskey portfolio includes the Angel’s Envy Kentucky Straight Bourbon range.

Jack Daniel’s Launches First Barrel Proof Whiskey; Woodford Debuts Distillery Series

Brown-Forman has unveiled Barrel Proof, the latest entry in its Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Collection. Aged in charred white American oak, each barrel of Jack Daniel’s Barrel Proof is exposed to a range of temperature variations, resulting in a whiskey that hovers between 125-140 proof. The new Single Barrel offering will be available nationwide starting in August, retailing at around $65 a 750-ml. The newcomer marks the second iteration in Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel lineup, following the launch of Single Barrel Select, a 94-proof single barrel Tennessee whiskey.

In a related development, Brown-Forman is adding a special Distillery Series to its Woodford Reserve Bourbon brand, beginning late this month with the release of two whiskies: Double Double Oaked and Sweet Mash Redux. Both new products will be offered at the Woodford Reserve Distillery in Versailles, Kentucky at $50 a 375-ml. Looking forward, Woodford plans to release up to three Distillery Series whiskies annually.

The small batch Florida-based vodka brand has claimed that by the “power of suggestion” inferred from its name, having a bottle of Lust Vodka on your table “naturally increases one’s sexual desire” adding “emotional elements of anticipation and seduction”.

The transaction, which is subject to regulatory approval, is expected to close around the beginning of August and to be $0.03 – $0.04 accretive to EPS for fiscal 2016.
