Golden Anniversary Parker’s Heritage Collection
The 2009 “Golden Anniversary” edition of Parker’s Heritage Collection celebrates Parker Beam’s 50 years as a distiller. The annual series of rare, aged American Whiskeys marries bourbons from each of Beam’s five decades of craftsmanship. The 100-proof Golden Anniversary edition will be offered nationally in a 750 ml bottle. Aged in open-rick warehouses, the bourbons used to make this edition were personally selected by Beam.

Fever-Tree Ginger Beer
Fever-Tree Ginger Beer, launched earlier in 2009 in the United Kingdom and Europe, is now coming to the U.S. To create the ginger beer, fresh ginger root is steeped in hot water for 48 hours and the ginger juice is drawn off and added to the spring water and pure cane sugar. Fever-Tree uses a proprietary blend of three gingers, which vary depending on the season.
