Statesman whiskey is playing a major role in the upcoming movie Kingsman: The Golden Circle, and the team behind the film have partnered with Old Forester to make this fictional bourbon a reality. The video below explains a bit more about the deal.
From the press release:
“Bourbon is an American tradition that Old Forester has celebrated for five generations, and we’re proud to reinforce the authenticity of the characters, The Statesman, as bourbon distillers,” said Campbell Brown, President of Brown-Forman.
“When choosing partners for the Kingsman brand, I look for excellence, integrity and taste. Old Forester is my first partner who takes the taste requirement to the next level,” said Matthew Vaughn.
Old Forester chose a unique taste profile when selecting the Statesman bourbon specifically for the film. Taking inspiration from the dynamic characters, Old Forester Statesman offers bold flavor blended to a smooth 95 proof, resulting in an exceptional balance of heat and spice.
Old Forester Statesman bourbon will be available starting in August 2017 for $54.99.
