John Drew Brands will be launching its spirits products–Brixton Mash Destroyer, Dove Tale Rum, and John Drew Rye–in Georgia with its new distribution partner, Georgia Crown Distributing Co. John Drew Brands was launched by Drew Estate President and Founder Jonathan Drew in 2015.
“The movement for John Drew Brands has been like a tidal wave building up for the past six years,” commented Drew. “When we announced to the world our intention to get busy-wizzy in this space, people didn’t realize the level of belligerence that we were bringing with the release of Brixton Mash Destroyer, the first mash-up of bourbon and rum. I sincerely thank Georgia Crown for believing in us, recognizing our style, and standing with us in pioneering creativity forward spirits.”
Don Leebern III, President of Georgia Crown Distributing Co., added: “JD is a visionary and master-craftsman who has touched the hearts and souls of millions of premium cigar consumers across the globe. Witnessing him transcend into the spirits world is fascinating, as his dedication to quality and innovation is deeply personal and relentless. It brings me great pride to have connected so well with him and his team, and bring the Georgia Crown distribution resources to the table.”
