Source:  Eastside Distilling, Inc.

Eastside Distilling, Inc. (NASDAQ: EAST), makers of craft spirits, today announced that its Redneck Riviera Whiskey has been authorized for sale at Total Wine & More in Florida and Texas. Founded in 1991 as a chain of two wine stores by two entrepreneurial brothers, Total Wine & More is an industry success story that has grown into being America's largest independent retailer of fine wine and spirits. The Company now operates 182 superstores across 22 states.

Grover Wickersham, Chairman and CEO of Eastside Distilling, said, “Total’s Texas and Florida stores have already placed their initial orders for Redneck Riviera Whiskey and are stocking up, so we hope to see an immediate contribution to our Texas and Florida case sales. I consider this to be a big win for Robert Manfredonia, our VP of National Accounts, because Total is considered a tough nut to crack this early in a brand’s evolution. Florida and Texas are large population states that are key for us, and are key for Total. Most people in the industry consider Total to be a preeminent U.S. retailer and their footprint complements that of other top retailers that are our other key accounts in Florida and Texas. We look forward to expanding with Total to other states in the coming months.”

Redneck Riviera Whiskey is a small batch whiskey with vanilla honey smoothness and a subtle finish that consumers are sure to love. Redneck Riviera Whiskey was crafted by the famed distilling team at Eastside, including Travis Schoney and Mel Heim. The team painstakingly developed what Eastside and John Rich believe is a superb whiskey unlike any other on the market, working over many months, with input from John Rich and friends.

Redneck Riviera Whiskey is now distributed in 21 states: Texas, California, Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Florida, North Carolina, North and South Dakota, Oregon, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Kentucky, Missouri, Washington, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Alaska.

Heavy Medal: Eastside Distilling Takes 21 Medals Home to Oregon from 2018 Los Angeles Spirits Competition

The Most Awarded Craft Distiller in The Northwest
Eastside Distilling, Inc. (NASDAQ: EAST), makers of craft spirits, today announced that its craft spirits won 21 medals at the 2018 Los Angeles World Spirits Competition. Of these 21 medals, 14 were won by Eastside directly and 7 in the Big Bottom Distilling (“BBD”) division.

Since introducing the spirits category in 2007, the Los Angeles International Spirits Competition has set a high standard for judging distilled beverages. Each year an esteemed panel of judges use a blind-tasting method to award medals to the best spirits from around the world, maintaining the highest standards of integrity and professionalism set 78 years ago by its partner wine competition.

Mel Heim, Master Distiller of Eastside Distilling, said, “It is a singular achievement to compete with the best spirits producers in the world, both craft and major international brands, and take home 21 medals at the Los Angeles International Spirits Competition, adding to the 14 medals won at the San Francisco International Spirits Competition, including several ‘best of category.’ We have already seen that the Double Gold we won at San Francisco for our Rye has really boosted sales at its launch. The American Single Malt produced by my fellow distiller at BBD, Travis Shoney, continues to shine. That bodes well for the future as American Single Malt is a brand new category.”

Ms. Heim added, “These medals, added to the trove won over the last ten years by Eastside and BBD, give Eastside claim to the title of most decorated craft spirits distiller in the northwestern United States. We look forward to the rest of 2018 with great enthusiasm and are even now gearing up some new releases that we think will really kill at the New York World Spirits Competition.”

Eastside Distilling Announces Its First American Single Malt Whiskey

Source:  Eastside Distilling, Inc.

Award Winning 2-Year-Old Single Malt Goes Into Limited Release Today From Eastside’s Big Bottom Distilling Ltd.

Eastside Distilling, Inc. (NASDAQ: EAST), makers of craft spirits, today introduced the Company’s first authentic American Single Malt Whiskey. The new product was distilled “from grain to glass” by Big Bottom Distilling (“BBD”), Eastside Distilling’s Hillsboro, Oregon-based subsidiary. The new BBD American Single Malt has already won two very prestigious craft spirits industry awards, a Gold Medal from the 2018 Francisco World Spirits Competition and Best of Category (with 93 points) from the 2018 Los Angeles International Spirits Competition. A limited number of bottles of the new release will be available at liquor stores in Oregon, the BBD tasting room in Hillsboro, OR, as well as at Eastside’s tasting rooms on 7th Street, Washington Square Mall, Clackamas and Woodburn.

After being aged for a minimum of two years in new and used American Oak barrels, the 91-proof whiskey can legally be designated “American Single Malt Whiskey.” The process uses a premium two-row malted barley, grown in the Pacific Northwest, and BBD’s proprietary yeast strains that were painstakingly developed for BBD single malts by veteran Lead Distiller Travis Schoney. Mr. Schoney served several years as a Distiller and Blender at craft distiller, High West Distilling in Park City, Utah, prior to its acquisition by Constellation Brands. BBD American Single Malt Whiskey is distilled on premises, barreled in American oak and bottled entirely in-bond, and therefore meets the rigorous standards for the new “American Single Malt” category in the process of being established by the U.S. government.

Grover Wickersham, Chairman and CEO of Eastside Distilling, said, “The launch of our new American Single Malt Whiskey is an important milestone. We see American Single Malt as a new and exciting category of super-premium spirit. In terms of skill and artisanship, American distillers are at the world pinnacle. No one can doubt that American single malt will in time stand shoulder to shoulder with the best of Scotch and Japanese single malt whiskeys. An important barrier to entry for those who chose to enter the category is that to qualify as American Single Malt, a whiskey must be a ‘grain to glass’ spirit, distilled, barreled and bottled at the distillery. We think that offering a top quality single malt will help us create shareholder value.”

Mr. Wickersham continued, “We tasted our new malt whiskey in barrel a year or so ago and were blown away by how well it was progressing. Frankly, it was a major factor in our wanting to bring the BBD crew into the Eastside family in the 2017 acquisition. We are excited by the high quality of this first release. Given the rave reviews by top spirits critics, we obviously are not feeling disappointed. We couldn’t be prouder of Travis, Ted and the rest of the team. Our only regret is that production is highly, highly limited right now in terms of cases per year, but plans are fully in place to ramp up our single malt distilling capacity several fold this year.”

Big Bottom Distilling, LLC was founded by Oregon craft spirits pioneer, Ted Pappas, in 2010 and a majority interest was acquired by Eastside Distilling in 2017. The BBD team of Lead Distiller Travis Schoney and Assistant Distiller Kyle LoGiudice work together with Eastside Master Distiller, Mel Heim, and her Eastside team, to produce a full range of over twenty-five award winning craft spirits.

Eastside Award-Winning Burnside Oregon Oaked Rye Launched on West Coast

Source:  Eastside Distilling, Inc.

Eastside Distilling, Inc. (NASDAQ: EAST) (“Eastside” or the “Company”), a producer of award-winning craft spirits, today announced initial deliveries of its new Burnside Oregon Oaked Rye. This award-winning new rye whiskey joins Burnside West End Blend American whiskey, Burnside Oregon Oaked Bourbon, and Burnside Goose Hollow RSV Bourbon as the fourth member of the Burnside family to be distributed in Oregon and other West Coast states.

The Oregon Oaked Rye is a small batch blended rye whiskey finished with Oregon Oak, or Quercus Garryana, barrels. Though it has only recently been removed from barrels and bottled, the Burnside Oregon Oaked Rye whiskey has already won the highly respected Double Gold Medal at the 2018 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, beating scores of other rye whiskeys such as Bulleit Rye and Jim Beam Rye. This places Burnside Oregon Oaked Rye whiskey on par with much more costly spirits such as Blanton’s Bourbon. Burnside Oregon Oaked Rye is the creation of Eastside’s Master Distiller, Mel Heim.

Mel Heim commented, “We are thrilled and proud to begin shipping the world’s first rye whiskey finished in Quercus Garryana casks, aka Oregon Oak, right on the heels of winning a first-class Double Gold medal from the prestigious San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Our new rye is a wonderful spirit that we think is unique to the rye category. The flavor experience is spiced, sweet, balanced and full-bodied. We have been working for years on developing and perfecting our rye and so it has become over time a highly anticipated addition to our line of Burnside Oregon Oak whiskey expressions.”

The launch of the Burnside Oregon Oaked Rye follows the launch of Burnside Oregon Oaked Bourbon, Burnside Goose Hollow RSV Bourbon, and the Burnside West End Blend American whiskey. The new Burnside Oregon Oaked Rye continues with the vibrant new look of the Burnside family of individually screen-printed bottles, designed in Portland by spirits branding firm Sandstrom Partners, and produced locally. Burnside’s design, with its bold typography and unexpected color relationships, draws its inspiration from music posters and garage-band flyers littering any number of telephone poles along the busy street. You will soon be able to find the new Burnside Oregon Oaked Rye at numerous locations throughout Oregon, or you can visit Eastside Distilling’s Tasting Rooms now to try it.
