Ogden, UT, July 19, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Ogden’s Own Distillery announced that Porter’s Peach Liqueur will be Available starting Friday July, 15, 2016 at the distillery’s retail outlet in Ogden. It will hit the Utah Department of Alcohol Beverage Control (DABC) stores the first part of August.
Porter’s Peach Liqueur ($18.99), a blend of peach and whiskey, is the company’s first follow-up to its hit product, Porter’s Fire Liqueur — a cinnamon and vanilla whiskey Blend.
“Over the past seven years, we’ve made products that pay homage to Utah’s rich, and sometimes curious, history. Porter’s Peach Liqueur is no different,” Steve Conlin, managing partner, said.
Porter Rockwell was a notorious character in the early history of the The Church of Latter-day Saints and the settlement of Utah. As a bodyguard for Joseph Smith and Brigham Young as well as being deputy marshal of Salt Lake City, Rockwell was known for heavy-handed enforcement and the killing of many men.
Rockwell, along with his fellow early settlers, was also known to drink the area’s Valley Tan Whiskey.
In 1851, along with his brother Merritt, Rockwell laid claim to land in Utah’s “Famous Fruit Way” near Brigham City, Utah adjacent to what is now known as Porter Spring. Today, the Fruit Way is not-so-slowly disappearing to development.
"While they never made improvements to the land, we’d like to think that the fruits from that land would have blended nicely with that whiskey Rockwell was known to drink," Conlin explained regarding the product’s development.
“While most would agree Rockwell was a ruffian, he was also known to have softer side such as when he donated his long locks to make wig for a woman recovering from typhoid fever,” said Conlin.
Porter’s Peach Liqueur’s a smooth blend of peach and whiskey. It celebrates complex nature and sweeter side of Porter Rockwell, as well as the disappearing Fruit Way between North Ogden and Brigham City.
The company will be bottling the first batch on July 15. Product will be available for purchase the same day. Samples are offered at the company’s retail location at a nominal fee as required by law.
