Old Forester bourbon partners new Kingsman film
Published:  05 May, 2017

Old Forester bourbon distillers will release a whisky range for the new Kingsman film set to be released in September 2017.

The Louisville-based distillers will produce Old Forester Statesman which is set to go on sale from September across the UK and US, retailing at £45.

Campbell Brown, president of Old Forester, said: “Old Forester is a brand with a great story to tell, and has a real role to play in Kingsman: The Golden Circle.

“Old Forester Statesman, the bourbon we’ve created for the film is a balanced whisky at 95 proof – it’s unbelievably smooth, with a long finish and we’re looking forward to bringing it to the UK later this year.”

Kingsman: The Golden Circle will cast Colin Firth and Channing Tatum and act as the sequal to the first Kingsman film which made $128m within the first five months of its release.

The film’s plot required a distillery and film director Matthew Vaughn chose Old Forester, America’s first bottled bourbon.

Vaughn said: “When choosing partners for the Kingsman brand I look for excellence, integrity and taste.

“Old Forester is my first partner who takes the taste requirement to the next level.”
