Ok you John Wayne (AKA The Duke) Fans, here is your chance to grab a little bit of the good stuff and raise your glass to The Duke. From DukeSpirits.com:
The Style of DUKE Bourbon was inspired by bottles from John Wayne’s personal whiskey collection, preserved for over 50 years and only recently discovered.
Meticulously blended to reflect The Duke’s preferred whiskey flavor profile from tasting notes left behind during the time he was planning his own distillery.
Distilled the old-fashioned way; hand crafted in small batches and aged in new hand built heavily charred American Oak barrels. A selection of 5 to 10 year old whiskeys are chosen barrel by barrel and blended by hand before the DUKE Bourbon reaches the bottle, and ultimately, you.
For those of you that need a little inspiration from The Duke, here are a couple of his more memorable movie quotes.
If you have not heard yet, Duke University and Duke Spirits are currently battling it out over the name “Duke”. I guess the University is afraid that the two will be confused because they are similar names. Seems silly to me since the logos look nothing alike.
