New Booze: Powers Signature Release

by Camper English

Pernod Ricard USA  and Irish Distillers, have unveiled a new look and line-up for its popular Powers range. The two significant changes to the range include; 1) updated packaging and a return to its original export strength of 43.2% (86.4 proof) for Powers Gold Label and 2) the addition of a new Single Pot Still expression, Powers Signature Release. 

Powers Gold Label features a higher strength abv of 43.2% and will be non-chill-filtered, a first for Irish whiskey at this abv level. The new whiskey and packaging will be available in the US beginning October 2013.

Powers Signature Release is the second Single Pot Still whiskey to be added to the Powers family, following the release of the ultra-premium Powers John’s Lane Release in March 2013. Using the signature Powers pot still distillate, it has been matured mainly in American bourbon barrels with the subtle inclusion of whiskey matured in Spanish Oloroso sherry casks.
