Drinks Americas Holdings, Ltd. is launching a new 1.75 litre size of Willie Nelson's Old Whiskey River Bourbon. The whiskey has previously only available nationally in conventional 750ml packaging.

In a statement yesterday (17 October), Drinks Americas CEO, J. Patrick Kenny, said: "Willie Nelson's Old Whiskey River Bourbon continues to grow in consumer popularity with double digit growth in key bourbon markets including Texas, Virginia and the Carolinas. Consumers are familiar with Willie Nelson's Bourbon and increasingly, we have had inquiries from both distributors and retailers to begin to market Old Whiskey River Bourbon in larger sizes."

Louis Chainier, president of Ex Cellars Distributors, Texas distributor of Old Whiskey River added: "I am very excited to get the larger size Old Whiskey River Bourbon into the market. Willie Nelson's bourbon is an important product in our growing company. Retail customers are very pleased with the product and have made space available for the larger size."

Old Whiskey River holiday gift packs will also come with a Willie Nelson CD attached to each bottle.
