New Whiskey (and Brandy) Labels: Chichibu, Westland and More
This week's most interesting new labels from the federal TTB database:
Copper & Kings cleared a new label for their Cr&ftwerk series of brandy finished in beer casks. This one is finished in Sierra Nevada Chocolate Cherry Stout barrels.
A label cleared for Ichiro's Malt Chichibu Port Pipe, an almost five year old, single cask whiskey from Japan's Chichibu distillery.
A label cleared for Komagatake, a 30 year old cask strength whiskey from the Mars Shinshu distillery in Japan.
Washington's Westland Distillery released three new circus-themed labels for Peat Week.
Hey look, a new Calvados from, er, Michigan. Given that Calvados is a protected geographic term in France, it seems like some of the French producers may not be too happy about that.
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.
