Whisky Advocate: Proud American Lee Greenwood Is Launching His Own Bourbon

January 4, 2021

Country music and whiskey often go hand-in-hand, both of them emblematic of American culture, and perfect for enjoying together. Several country singers and groups have launched their own whiskeys, including Florida Georgia Line (Wolf Moon), John Rich of Big & Rich (Redneck Riviera), and Darius Rucker (Backstage Southern Whiskey). But none of them bring together the ultimate American matchup quite like Lee Greenwood, who’s preparing to launch an eponymous whiskey this spring in partnership with Omaha, Nebraska’s Soldier Valley Spirits.

Launching in April, Lee Greenwood Signature bourbon features the same liquid as Soldier Valley’s 6 bourbon, which will be phased out as the new release steps in. The 45% abv 6 year old whiskey blends Soldier Valley’s house-made Bourbon, distilled from Nebraska corn, with sourced Bourbon. It’s packaged in a bottle resembling a World War II-era canteen, with a red, white, and blue dog tag around the neck and Greenwood’s signature on the label. Priced at $55, the bourbon will initially roll out along the Gulf Coast and on military bases across the country, with expansion ongoing throughout 2021. Whisky Advocate has more.
