Tasting Notes, which are written by Jackson’s daughter — sommelier and USA Today best-selling author — Mattie Jackson Selecman:
Crafted in honor of classic, bourbon style whiskey, Silverbelly tips its hat to the spirit at the heart of this country. Its smooth texture and medium-light body make it perfect to sip neat at the end of a long day or to raise in a toast of celebration, mixed in your favorite Old Fashioned or Manhattan cocktail. With a subtle kiss of oak and traditional flavors of caramel, spiced apples, and toasty brown sugar, Silverbelly is as American as whiskey comes - a true taste of home.
Jackson’s storied career includes 35 chart-topping songs, several multi-PLATINUM albums, GRAMMY, CMA, ACM and Billboard awards, and membership in the Country Music Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame. To celebrate his iconic career, Silverbelly Whiskey’s batch numbers will reflect each of Jackson’s No. 1 hit songs as the years unfold, making each bottle an instant collector’s item. The first batch of Silverbelly Whiskey is named after Jackson's first hit song, 1990’s “Here In The Real World.”
The whiskey is currently available in-stores in Tennessee and will soon be available nationwide. In the meantime, spirits-lovers across the country can pre-order Silverbelly Whiskey online at silverbellywhiskey.com.
