Coors Whiskey Co. Introduces New Expert Blends

By July 30, 2023Rhode Island, Top News

Five Trail Blended American Whiskey and Barmen 1873 Bourbon, new expertly blended whiskeys from Coors Whiskey Co., are newly available in Rhode Island via Horizon Beverage Co. Led by David Coors, the new spirits mark the company’s first venture into the full-strength spirits category.

Coors Whiskey Co. launched two new brands of blended whiskeys that are now available in Rhode Island through Horizon Beverage Co.: Five Trail Blended American Whiskey and Barmen 1873 Bourbon. Five Trail Flagship Blend is an intentionally blended American whiskey featuring a harmony of aged Colorado single malt and three bourbons, proofed with Rocky Mountain water. Tasting notes call the blend complex and elegant, with flavors of wood sugar, vanilla and apple that intertwine with smoke, ginger and allspice for an easy-going, lingering finish. Barmen 1873 Bourbon is a 92-proof blend of straight bourbon whiskeys bottled in Bardstown, Kentucky. Barmen 1873 is sweet on the front with notes of caramel, vanilla and grilled peach with a long, lingering spice finish on the end. Barmen 1873 is the first bourbon from Coors Whiskey Co. and is inspired by Founder David Coors’ great-great-grandfather, A. Coors, and honors his birthplace and the year in which he established his legacy.
