We're Not Abov Listening to Your Feedback
The "BOOM"GRASS State
Big news came out in December that two of the mid-sized distilleries in Kentucky will be undergoing dramatic expansions. Jefferson’s, famous for its well-traveled ocean series, will see the bigger of the two moves and switch from contract distilling to self-distilling. Willett, whose pot still is known by its other name: ‘that really cool bottle’, will see expanded proofing and production facilities. With nearly $350M between these two, the Bluegrass state is really booming!

MOST COVETED WHISK(E)Y THIS MONTH
Lagavulin 16 Year Old
This Islay classic is always high on your wishlists, but last month it topped the charts as by far as the most wishlisted whiskey. Earthy, peaty, smokey, briney, and hearty campfire are all terms the Abov community has used to describe this single malt, so if that’s your ideal glass of whiskey, Sláinte!
