New Fistful of Bourbon

William Grant is introducing a blended American whiskey and hoping that its expertise with blended Scotch will translate across the pond.

The idea for the name came from A Fistful of Dollars was a 1964 film starring Clint Eastwood that launched the genre of “spaghetti westerns”—Italian produced and directed movies shot abroad but set in the 19th century American West. Naturally, Quentin Tarantino once called it “the greatest achievement in the history of cinema.”

It was first reported by The Daily Beast, Fistful of Bourbon and will be available come September. The bourbon is a blend of straight whiskeys from around North America (no information on the source of the whiskeys yet), and initial availability is limited to Texas at this time, but the brand plans to slowly roll out nationwide. If you want more information or to read more on the history check out The Daily Beast.
