Looking to grab a quality bottle of whiskey to sip during the holiday season? Well, I highly recommend you head on out to your local liquor purveyor and pick up a bottle of the new limited edition TINCUPFourteenerBourbon Whiskey (better hurry up, limited supply only).
TINCUP has long been a staple on my liquor shelf, and I’m super stoked to try their new 14–year aged bourbon whiskey featuring the iconic Long’s Peak on the label.
All TINCUP bottles are topped by…you guessed it, a tin cup. This neat little detail is a nod to the whiskey drinking miners of historic Colorado who would replace their dried out bottle corks with a bit of tin to help ensure a tight seal. Resourceful drinkers, love it.
As an added incentive for all us environmentally minded whiskey connoisseurs, TINCUP is donating $14,000 to the ColoradoFourteener Initiative’s “Adopt–a–Peak” Programthat helpspreserve and restore trails. Drink whiskey, help maintain the great outdoors….WIN WIN.
