The three products launching at Binny’s Beverage Depot will be: Brixton Mash Destroyer, Dove Tale Rum, John Drew Rye. By 4 p.m. later on in the day, every Binny’s location will have the product available in its store.
Jonathan Drew first announced the launch of John Drew Brands back in April 2016. Known for disrupting the cigar industry with Drew Estate, Drew has set his sights on the spirits industry, craft beverages and food with his new venture.
“My life’s journey has been hard, and sometimes painful,” commented Jonathan Drew. “Permanently moving to war-torn Nicaragua in 1998 without speaking a word of Spanish was emblematic of the risks I embraced to have access to the raw materials we required for our cigars. While I’m proud of the successful brands and culture we’ve birthed at Drew Estate, my greatest pride and joy was living inside the factory for 14 years, only steps away from the daily production, packaging, and leaf processing. On a daily basis, I was working on the factory floor before breakfast. The dedication and hard work from the DE team in the USA allowed me to remain laser focused on brand ideation from an organic perspective on the factory floor, not from a whack corporate office.”
