Texan company Southwest Spirits & Wine has launched two new spirits brands, Calamity Gin and Knockmore Irish Whiskey.
Calamity Gin is a citrusy ‘Southern-style’ gin with eleven botanicals. It is designed to appeal to non-gin drinkers, SSW said today.
Meanwhile, Knockmore Irish Whiskey targets Bourbon and Scotch drinkers and is made from a blend of two-year-aged single malts with eight-to-ten year-old grain and malt whiskeys, the company said.
Southwest Spirits & Wine was created through a merger last year between alcohol brand developer Prairie Creek Beverages and Southwest Distillery. It has distribution in 35 US states and owns brands including NUE Vodka, JR Ewing Bourbon and Henderson’s Whiskey.
