New Whiskey Labels: New Canadian, Irish and More
This week's most interesting new labels from the federal TTB database:
Diageo cleared a label for Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye, a Canadian blended whisky made from 90% rye.
Jameson cleared a new label for its new Caskmates series of whiskey aged in craft beer barrels. The label is for the "Stout Edition" which is presumably aged in stout casks.
For Armagnac fans, there were 26 new labels cleared from a variety of different distilleries by independent bottler Darroze, with vintages ranging from 1918 to 2003.
Sazerac appears to be planning a new label in its Stag line, a move sure to excite whiskey geeks...or maybe not.
Note: The fact that a label appears on the TTB database does not necessarily mean it will be produced. In addition, some details on the label, such as proof, can change in the final product.
