8 April Fools' Day Whiskey Pranks You'll Enjoy

With today being April Fools’ Day and all, you likely have already noticed our little prank news story about a super secret whiskey costing $1 million a bottle. I’ve been tracking other whiskey prank jokes today as well and gathering them for your consideration below.

Journeyman Distillery:


We are proud to announce that starting today we will begin infusing barrels of our Ravenswood Rye with actual ravens. This is a ground-breaking innovation and we believe we are the first distillery to avian-age our whiskey. Each raven is smoked over oak for 12 hours before entering the barrel, which imparts a slightly smoky and meaty flavor to the rye that really balances out the citrus notes. You might not want to eat crow but you’ll love drinking raven!
