TULLAHOMA, Tenn., May 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- This May, Cascade Blonde American Whiskey is splashing down in Texas and Michigan to introduce lake lovers and dock dwellers to their new favorite daytime summer sipper. Cascade Blonde American Whiskey is a new style of blonde American whiskey that's incredibly smooth, lighter in color and easier to drink than floating downstream.
Cascade Blonde is made using a double chill filtration process, high-corn mash bill and limestone filtered water fresh from Cascade Spring in Tullahoma, Tenn., to give it a smooth-drinking profile. Highlighted by a crisp fruit taste and creamy notes of vanilla, Cascade Blonde complements simple, delicious drinks like the signature Cascade Crush (Cascade Blonde American Whiskey + lemonade + orange wedge) that's perfect for sipping slowly and safely.
This summer Cascade Blonde is teaming up with American Rivers, the leading river conservation organization in the nation, to help preserve America's rivers and lakes because fresh spring water is at the core of how Cascade Blonde is made. Throughout the summer, American Rivers will host waterway cleanup events to support their mission to protect, restore and conserve nature's greatest resource, because without pure water, great whiskey isn't possible.
"We're excited about teaming up with Cascade Blonde because they understand the importance of fresh water. It's what they use to finish to their whiskey and is core to our shared values," said Amy Kober, National Communications Director for American Rivers. "Pairing their passion with our commitment and expertise will have a positive, lasting impact for rivers nationwide."
In Michigan, look for Cascade Blonde at summertime festivals in Traverse City and at Electric Forest Music Festival in Rothbury, MI on June 21-24 and June 28-July 1. Cascade Blonde will be hanging out with friends Joshua Guiles and Great Lakes Locals throughout the summer along with Michigan native and Warner Music Nashville recording artist Frankie Ballard, who knows a thing or two about "Sunshine and Whiskey." In Austin, Texas, look for Cascade Blonde alongside friends Haley Plotkin and Chelsea Bancroft at Float Fest on July 21-22.
With a suggested retail price of $19.99/750ml and carrying 80 proof (40% ABV), Cascade Blonde's one-of-a-kind packaging marries the nostalgia of simpler times with a fun, modern take on whiskey. The Fish Out of Water icon embodies the essence of the brand, and the bottle's cork can be transformed into a fishing bobber with a few quick moves. The shape of the bottle itself is inspired by the buoys of America's waterways that help keep boat captains safe and on track. Likewise, it's important to remind all current and future friends to enjoy Cascade Blonde similarly, and always remember to day-sip responsibly.
