NORWALK, Conn., Oct. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- It's show time for Jeremiah Weed as the makers of the brand unveil a new line of American whiskies blended with hand-selected secret spices and natural flavors. Each variant is sure to bewilder and amaze as they take the stage as either a shot or mixed with cola. With these releases, consumers craving more curiosity and excitement from their whiskey will be provided additional options to be enjoyed responsibly.
The main attractions and their relevant plot lines include:

Jeremiah Weed Whiskies' labels display a faceless man with intricate designs specific to each variant spiraling from his top hat. The whiskies are a strangely delicious addition to the brand's portfolio, which includes Jeremiah Weed Southern Style Sweet Tea and Jeremiah Weed Blended Bourbon Whiskey.
