Brixton Mash Destroyer is a mash up of Kentucky Bourbon and Florida Rum, utilizing craft sourced, core products (90°; SRP: $39.99 for 750ml). Dove Tale Rum is true Florida Rum that is sweet and vibrant, yet dark and mysterious due to its Florida Everglades origin Black Strap Refiners Grade Molasses that’s distilled carefully and then aged in bourbon barrels (80°; SRP: $34.99 for 750ml). John Drew “Rye Whiskey” is distilled in Canada, then aged in Toasted Oak Barrels. The flavor is rich with caramel, clove, vanilla, honey, oak, and orange peel with a soft lingering finish, indicative of the flavor profile that Jonathan Drew envisioned (90°; SRP: $49.99 for 750ml).
From the Wynwood Safe house, Founder of John Drew Brands, Jonathan Drew, “Massachusetts and Rhode Island are deep in the Drew culture, flying the flag heavy for 21 years. It was great to see the support from the cigar bars, such as Vintage Cigar in Rhode Island, as well as cigar & spirit retailers, such as Redstone Liquors. But the real surprise was to see the hundreds of on-premise and off-premise locations that feel connected to our movement and have come on board. Thank you too Gary Shaw and the MS Walker team for believing in the John Drew Brands portfolio and vision forward.”
