Chicago-based craft brewery Goose Island Beer Co. has announced that it will be launching its own line of bourbon-based canned cocktails. According to the company, the decision to enter the ready-to-drink cocktail category comes following the success of its 'Bourbon County Stout' -- a one-of-a-kind whiskey-infused beer.
“We like to say that our team is just as much bourbon drinkers as we are beer drinkers,” said the President of Goose Island Beer Co., Todd Ahsmann. In fact, the brewers at Goose Island have been experimenting with bourbon barrels for the last 30 years.
The new line of whiskey cocktails includes three flavors: 'Old Fashioned High-Ball,' 'Whiskey Sour,' and 'Blackberry Smash.' All three offerings are crafted using three-year-old bourbon from Midwest Grain Products, a distillery based in Indiana.
