Beam Suntory has announced the U.S. launch, of the signature core range expression from its Canada based Alberta Distillers.
Alberta Premium (40% ABV) has been produced using 100% Canadian prairie rye grains, grown by local farmers. The grains are nourished by nutrient-dense, glacier-fed spring water from the surrounding Rocky Mountains.
This latest release, follows the successful relaunch of the highly coveted Alberta Premium Cask Strength Rye into the U.S. in 2021.
Commenting on the launch, George Teichroeb, General Manager of Alberta Distillers, said: "We were thrilled by the response to our re-introduction of cask strength rye whisky to the U.S. last year, and this year we wanted to offer U.S. fans the opportunity to get their hands on the liquid we're best known for. Alberta Premium showcases exactly what true Canadian rye whisky can be, and we're proud to continue the tradition of producing the gold standard for Canadian spirits and using 100% rye grains to craft this distinguished liquid."
Alberta Premium, will start rolling out to selected retailers in the U.S. later this month, for a RRP of $24.99 - 750ml.
