Independent bottler, the Jewish Single Malt Whisky Society, is re-branding its operations under the new name of Single Cask Nation.
Launched nearly two years ago by Joshua Hatton, Jason Johnstone-Yellin and Seth Klaskin, the society’s goal was to launch a whisky company with a Jewish cultural flare that exhibits sensitivity to the dietary needs of Jews but is every bit a classic “whisky society,” for the enjoyment of all.
However, the trio also wanted to create an interactive community that inspires participation, affiliation and a common identity: a Nation. As such, the Jewish Whisky Company, LLC, will now operate under the trade name of Single Cask Nation.
The new name also reflects the society’s decision to branch out beyond Scotland and bottle world whiskies, some of which will not be malt whiskies at all. It is also hoped the name change will encourage more non-Jewish whisky enthusiasts to join.
The basic “white” level of membership ciosts $180 and comes with a number of benefits, including: a complimentary bottle of Single Cask Nation single cask single malt, 2 Urban Bar tasting glasses, a society T-shirt and a one year subscription to Whisky Advocate Magazine.
