28 Sep Good Bourbon for Everyone – Goodwood Brewing & Spirits Expands Bourbon Distribution
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Goodwood Brewing and Spirits announced a move into craft spirits with the launch of a premium bourbon aged in stout barrels in 2019. Now, Goodwood is excited to announce the opening of spirits distribution in ten new states throughout the US. Distribution is now available in Alabama, Arizona, California, Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, Indiana, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee and Washington.
“Visitors to our restaurants have enjoyed our beer barrel finished bourbons with very limited opportunity to purchase the product in their home states. To meet this increased interest, we are excited to partner with distributors and move into new states.” Ted Mitzlaff, CEO and Owner
Goodwood spirits are Kentucky based aged in their used beer barrels. Currently, their series includes two bourbon expressions and one rye, with one additional bourbon scheduled to be released soon. Through a partnership with Green River Distilling in Owensboro, Kentucky, Goodwood has been able to perfect their process of producing, finishing and packaging bourbon to meet increasing demands. All products have an emphasis placed on quality and craftsmanship, with months of preparation and experimentation going into each spirit. Bourbons are aged in charred white oak American barrels for four to eight years, before being finished in beer barrels, for a special flavor that can only develop by aging for this long. The beer-barrel aging lends malt sweetness and a cocoa character to the robust whiskey tones of vanilla and sweet caramel.
“A great bourbon brings people together. We have already created relationships with new distributors in these states and are looking forward to creating more.” Thomas Crockett, VP of Bourbon
Visit any Goodwood location to enjoy or purchase Goodwood bourbons. If you’re in the area, be sure to stop by and see them at Bourbon on the Banks Festival in Frankfort, Kentucky, on Saturday October 1. Bourbon samples will be available of all three products and bottles will be available for purchase. Goodwood Brewing and Spirits is proud to be a sponsor of this event.
Goodwood Spirits are currently available in select retail stores throughout Alabama, Arizona, California, Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, Indiana, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee and Washington. All Goodwood products can also be purchased at Goodwood locations and online at shopgoodwoodbrewing.com.
