Two of the more renowned names in American footwear, Jon Buscemi and James Bond are bringing their career expertise to the spirits world with the launch of Wolves Whiskey.

Crafted alongside master distiller Marko Karakasevic in Northern California, the first run includes whiskey distilled from stout beer and aged in French oak barrels for eight years, a five-year-old pilsner whiskey aged in Char 3 New American oak barrels, and a rye whiskey. The unique blend is distilled in a rare alambic pot still from Cognac, France, and lightly-filtered with the mineral rich water of Sonoma County, resulting in sweet and citrusy smells with hints of nutmeg and allspice, and a flavor that mixes toasted vanilla, oak, dark chocolate and cappuccino. Finally, each French-cut glass bottle is wrapped in Italian sheepskin leather and topped with a maple wood cork.

Wolves’ first run of whiskey, nicknamed “a wolf in sheep’s clothing,” is limited to 898 bottles and is retailing for $150 USD at Flaviar.com.

After almost 2 years of a little sweat, some good taste, a group of dope partners and an amazing juice, I’m launching my next brand, Wolves Whiskey. I’m really proud of this work and the result is simply delicious. Some facts. ‘First Run,’ our initial release, is a unique blend distilled in a rare Alambic pot still from Cognac, France. The 106 proof blend is comprised of (1) whiskey distilled from craft Stout beer, aged in French oak for 8 years, (2) whiskey distilled from craft Pilsner beer, aged in New American oak for 5 years, and (3) a Rye whiskey selected for its spice to round out the finish. The full blend is lightly filtered with the mineral rich water of Sonoma County. This whiskey is California made. Each bottle is wrapped in butter soft Italian sheepskin leather. The glass is heavy and French-cut, allowing the sheepskin to lay flush against the glass. The bottle is topped with a maple wood cork. A wolf in sheep’s clothing, ‘First Run’ from Wolves is limited to 898 bottles. I’ve added the link to purchase in the bio. Go grab a bottle for prosperity. And thank you for the continued support. Love
