A New Channel That Will Lift Up Your Spirits

For all those people out there that love cocktails and drinks there is a new channel for you. Award-winning media company NBTV Channels has announced the launch of Spirits Network, the first shoppable entertainment network and personalized membership service coupled with physical products and premium original content. Spirits Network will bring unparalleled access and expertise to the culture of premium spirits’ growing audience.

With a mission to “discover, buy, taste,” on every device, Spirits Network launches today as an OTT platform, mobile app and online. It combines expert product curation with original content that gives members the story behind the bottle and the people who create it. Spirits Network product selection is supported by experts across all spirits categories, led by Flavien Desoblin, from NYC’s Brandy Library and Copper + Oak lounges. It will also be supported by other curators and experts including internationally-renowned bourbon expert Fred Minnick, mixologist Rob Floyd and celebrity friends. The products they have selected bring together the most exclusive brands – both craft and commercial – all available for real-time purchase through proprietary click-to-buy technology.

“This is the future of media,” says NBTV Chairman & CEO and Spirits Network co-founder Nick Buzzell. “This isn’t an analog business anymore, and we’re creating a new kind of network without interruptive commercials that bring product experiences directly to consumers. For example, we’re working with Diageo, a global leader in beverage alcohol with an outstanding collection of brands across spirits and beer, to tell stories, like how Don Julio Gonzalez (of Tequila Don Julio) made tequila for his friends, as well as the brand he created. These are entertaining stories first and, at the same time, a celebration of premium spirits and the community that enjoys them.” Further, as a leader in this space, we are proud to work with the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States and Responsibility.org to integrate responsibility into everything we do.”

Spirits Network will feature:

  • Original Content:  See the stories behind the bottles, whether it’s a short snippet of a Japanese whiskey-tasting on mobile or a documentary about tequila on the big screen. Our award-winning series uncovers the characters of legend and the tastemakers of today obsessing with craft whiskeys, vodkas, tequilas, gins, brandies and other liquors across fine spirits categories.
  • Shoppable Content Members can buy rare and even exclusive product in two ways: One, product windows will be visible within content screens with a “Quick Buy”” option available. Two, subscribe to a monthly Spirits box and have our experts select products based on tastes and areas of the desired exploration whether it’s a monthly bourbon box, craft gin or the latest in tequila. Those offers will also be available as gifts for the holidays, bridal party, or even the office party.
  • Community: Spirits Network is building a new kind of social network, one where spirits enthusiasts can connect to each other as well as the personalities and experts that define the spirits business.

Get Crown Royal XR While You Can

Crown Royal XR, the second addition to the Crown Royal Extra Rare Whisky Series, is a limited-edition whisky crafted from one of the final batches of whiskies produced at founder Samuel Bronfman’s original LaSalle Distillery. And with LaSalle Distillery production closed in 1993, Crown Royal XR will not be available for much longer.

Crown Royal XR is the rarest in our whisky series and boasts an exceptionally full-bodied and smooth sipping experience. The sophisticated blend of dried fruits and honey harmoniously balance the spicy notes of Canadian rye for a round finish that tastes of raisins, cocoa and brown sugar.

Before it is gone, add a piece of Crown Royal history to your whisky collection or gift a bottle to the aficionado you know will appreciate the legacy and craftsmanship of this collectible release.

Bud Light Offers Area 51 Aliens Free Beer

Bud Light set out to up the ante on the Area 51 raid scheduled for Friday, September 20, by offering free Bud Light to any alien that escapes Area 51 – and that was only the beginning.

The thought of offering America’s favorite light lager to creatures from another world got Twitter users buzzing, and Bud Light doubled-down on the promise by serving up a Bud Light Area 51 special edition label.

Fans immediately hopped on board with the thought of a limited-edition label, and Bud Light shared that if this tweet receives 51,000+ RT, they will make the label a reality.

A Bud Light spokesperson behind the mission shared, “Whether you’re from this planet or another galaxy, nothing says ‘welcome to our planet’ like a few beers. The way we see it, there’s no better way to show these aliens ‘we come in peace’ than a few BLs. Who knows? Maybe a few beers will make this a party rather than a raid.”

Ford Celebrates The 50th Anniversary Of The Moon Landing

With the 50th Anniversary of the moon landing on July 20th let’s take a look how Ford played a part in the Apollo 11 mission.

Ford Aerospace and Communications Corporation built and maintained Mission Control (now Johnson Space) Center, providing all the equipment used in the Apollo mission and the transmission of Neil Armstrong’s voice back to Houston and out to the rest of the world.

Ford also provided technical and engineering support personnel during the construction and ongoing operations.  The system designs were updated for each mission, some of which required as many as two million wiring changes. The work by Ford Aerospace and the Mission Control staff was even more complex as many of the elements had never been tried before.

Some other notable details about Mission Control include:

  • More than 1,500 different items of telemetry data – from the astronaut’s health to the results of test to flight data – flowed into the center simultaneously.
  • The Mission Control Center housed the largest assembly of television switching equipment in the world.
  • More than 60 thousand miles of wiring were laid and maintained to continue operations.
  • Five IBM 360/75 mainframe computers sent data to more than 1,300 indicator switches to be monitored by mission flight controllers.

Garth Brooks & Seagram 7 Look For All Of Us To Join The Pact

This summer coming off the debut of Brooks’ new song “Dive Bar”, the American icon announced on Seagram’s 7 National Dive Bar Day (July 7) he will be asking dive bar patrons nationwide to #JoinThePact and pledge to never drive under the influence.

“Dive bars are all about the people inside of them. These people are our family…the ones we can talk to about anything and the dive bar itself is a lot of times, the calm in the storm, our getaway from the daily grind,” said Brooks. “I applaud Seagram’s 7 and share the mission to help our favorite neighborhood hangouts live to see another day. That’s why I urge all my friends to #JointhePact and pledge to never drive impaired, so together we can keep the celebration going all summer long.”

Seagram’s 7 Crown and Brooks are proud to support Join the Pact, a global mission to help make our roads safer for everyone by reducing road-related accidents as a result of driving impaired.
