POPS Whisky Celebrates Father’s Day With New Batch Of Its Imported Canadian Whisky

By Hannah Kanik / June 16, 2021

POPS’ Famous Brand Whisky is highlighting its award-winning whisky as a perfect gift for Father’s Day this year.

The Austin, Texas, based distillery was the 2021 San Francisco World Spirit Competition winner, and picked up rankings at the ASCOT Awards and is a 2-time John Barleycorn Award gold medal recipient.

POPS Whisky is a proprietary blend of carefully selected oak-aged barrels of 3 to 14-year-old corn and rye whiskies from Quebec that were then imported to Austin and carefully blended and proofed to 42% with Texas Hill Country limestone water. The whisky was crafted in small batches of no more than 500 cases at a time and is available in retailers in Oklahoma, Texas, New York, New Jersey, California, Florida, Missouri, Kansas, Illinois, Massachusetts, Arizona, and Colorado.

 “Our whisky brand has always been a deeply personal family story, especially celebrating the kind of bond that exists between a father and his kid(s),” said Scott Haro in a prepared statement. “We love to tell our story because it’s at the heart of who we are – it’s a legacy brand.”

“Growing up hearing the story from my pops – of his ‘POPS’ Famous Brand of whisky – has always been a fun bit of our family history, and in 2017 we decided to bring it back to life in a meaningful way. We’ve grown quite a bit as a company since then, but it’s so important for us to remain close to the core of what this brand is all about – celebrating every moment together in life – big and small. Or as Pops’ says, celebrate EVERYTHING! Each bottle’s back label has a small open space allowing people to write in what they want to commemorate.”

POPS was established in 1943 and has always been just what the brand describes as pure whisky and water: no sugar, glycerol or flavorings added. POPS is intended to be a light, easy sipping, easy mixing, approachable whisky.
