Grain & Barrel is teaming up with Elvis Presley Enterprises to bring Elvis fans an Elvis Presley-themed whiskey.
From Conor McGregor, to Matthew McConaughey, to Bob Dylan, to Florida Georgia Line, to Nick Offerman, to Drake, there’s no shortage of celebrity whiskeys. Some are good, some not so much. Those celebrities all have one thing in common, though: They’re alive. You don’t see whiskeys dedicated to celebrities who are no longer with us, as often.
In 2013 and 2014, the trend got off the ground with Jack Daniel’s Sinatra Select; Monument Valley’s “The Duke,” dedicated to John Wayne; and J.R. Ewing Bourbon. Since that era, though, the trend has gone cold, but Grain & Barrel Spirits, the maker of Chicken Cock Whiskey, is changing that, with the help of Elvis Presley Enterprises.
The two entities are partnering to launch two whiskeys paying tribute to — you guessed it — Elvis Presley. The whiskeys will be bottled in Presley’s home state of Tennessee.
