Kings Of Leon Join The Celebrity Whiskey Fray


Tennessee-based rock band Kings of Leon has become the latest celebrities to lend their name to whiskey – collaborating with Kentucky-based Willett Distillery to launch Kiamichi Whiskey – a limited edition bourbon and rye whiskey collection named after the river where the members of Kings of Leon [brothers Caleb, Nathan and Jared Followill along with their cousin, Matthew Followill], gathered for family reunions. The limited edition Kiamichi Whiskey Collection includes a five-year-old rye whiskey, an eight-year-old rye whiskey and a 19-year-old bourbon.

The five-year-old rye is a 12-barrel blend of Willett rye mash bills, aged in 24-month cured oak, bottled at 54% alcohol by volume [108 proof] and limited to 2,780 bottles for $150 per 750ml bottle.

The eight-year-old rye is a six-barrel blend of Willett’s low-rye mash bill aged in nine-month cured oak, bottled at 55% alcohol by volume [110 proof], limited to 1,171 bottles for $250 per 750ml bottle.

The 19-year-old bourbon was concocted in a single barrel proprietary mash bill, bottled at cask strength (56.5% alcohol by volume – 113 proof), is limited to a mere 374 bottles and being made available for the slightly higher price point of $1,500 per 750ml bottle.

The entire Kiamichi Whiskey Collection is available via as well as in the states of Kentucky, Oklahoma and Tennessee.
