Michael Dietsch over at A Dash of Bitters posted a number of amazing advertisements regarding Green River Whiskey, a now defunct product hailing from Owensboro, Kentucky. Owensboro is just about an hour from the city I grew up in, Evansville, Indiana. According to this article, the craft whiskey movement in the United States has renewed interest in both the Green River Whiskey brand, currently being given a reboot by the great grandson of the founder in a new location in Ohio, and the old distillery, purchased by Angostura and being refurbished for a new whiskey coming out of Owensboro.
It excites me to see this come out of a place so close to home. Good luck to everyone involved, and I look forwards to tasting the new products.
