PEG LEG PORKER RELEASES SECOND LOT OF TENNESSEE STRAIGHT BOURBON WHISKEY
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (Jan. 21, 2016) – Veteran Pitmaster Carey Bringle, otherwise known as the Peg Leg Porker, announced the Lot 2 release of his Peg Leg Porker Tennessee Straight Bourbon Whiskey today.
Unlike the original Peg Leg Porker Tennessee Straight Bourbon Whiskey released in 2013, this Lot 2 bourbon is aged for eight years in new charred oak barrels and undergoes a new filtering technique.
“Our bourbon is finished using hickory charcoal. After the whiskey is taken from its barrels, it is filtered through hickory creating our signature flavor and color,” said Carey Bringle, Peg Leg Porker owner. “We continue to grow our men’s lifestyle brand and this new whiskey is essential to that growth. BBQ fans and bourbon fans will love this whiskey.”
Nashville’s Best Bands will distribute the new 90-Proof Peg Leg Porker Tennessee Straight Bourbon Whiskey. The initial run will be 700 cases and distributed first in Tennessee, then nationwide. Fans of Peg Leg Porker will recognize the pig with a peg leg on each bottle. Retail price is $49.95.
Last year, Peg Leg Porker introduced the “Pork and Stormy” cocktail mixing ½ parts Peg Leg Porker Bourbon and ½ parts Barritts Ginger Beer with a splash of lime.
