Goose Island launches its own range of Bourbon cocktails


Goose Island Beer Co, maker of the famous Bourbon County Stout, takes its love for bourbon a step further by launching its own line of craft cocktails ready to drink.

We like to say that our team is as much bourbon drinkers as we are beer, ”says Todd Ahsmann, President of Goose Island Beer Co.

Goose Island brewers have been experimenting and blending with bourbon casks for almost 30 years. While the Bourbon County Stour offering uses bourbon casks from well-known brands such as Old Forester, Elijah Craig and Blanton’s, the cocktail line will instead use three-year-old bourbon from Midwest Grain Products (MGP), a distillery from Indiana which supplies the liquid for a number of top brands, although those brands often don’t advertise the relationship – flip a bottle and see if it’s distilled in Lawrenceburg, IN to find a few.

Some of the most important are: High West Double rye !, WhistlePig Old World Rye, and Belle Meade Cognac Cask Bourbon.

As for the Goose Island cocktails, each cocktail is 9.0% ALC / VOL and will be $ 15.99 per pack of 4 x 12 oz cans.

Here’s the full rundown along with Ahsmann’s descriptions:
