Silver Screen Bottling recently teamed up with country music legend Alan Jackson for a new whiskey, named for the color of the singer’s signature cowboy hat … Silverbelly.
The Country Music Hall of Fame member hand-picked the premium whiskey casks for the spirit that would represent his brand.
In a prepared statement, Jackson said that when he opened the first bottle of Silverbelly, it sent him and his team dancing with delight.
Silverbelly is described a bourbon style whiskey that’s smooth in texture with a medium-light body that’s designed to be a sipper or to mix in an Old Fashioned or Manhattan cocktail.
The distiller’s notes come from Jackson’s daughter, sommelier and USA Today best-selling author Mattie Jackson Selecman. She explains that the 750ml bottle of whiskey clocks in at 91 proof and on the nose, has aromas of brown sugar, sweet apple, cherry, and honey.
On the palate, Silverbelly tastes of bright fall fruits with a light, silky texture on the mid-palate; soft caramelized oak tones are met with a savory wood spice on the finish.
The whiskey is currently available in stores in Tennessee and will soon be available nationwide. And it can be pre-ordered online at www.silverbellywhiskey.com.
To help promote the whiskey this summer, Alan Jackson is setting out on his “Last Call: One More for the Road Tour.” Tickets and information for all the shows are available at www.alanjackson.com/last-call-tour.
Jackson’s music career includes 35 chart-topping songs, several multi-platinum albums, Grammy, CMA, ACM and Billboard awards, and membership in the Country Music Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame.
To celebrate his iconic career, Silverbelly Whiskey’s batch numbers will reflect each of Jackson’s No. 1 hit songs as the years unfold. The first batch of Silverbelly Whiskey is named after Jackson’s first hit song, 1990’s “Here In The Real World.”
