Rapper Drake will soon launch his Virginia Black American Whiskey. The first details emerged on Drake’s official Instagram in February 2016 with the simple logo and email address as shown below aside the text “After that legendary moment what else is there to do but celebrate with class. Virginia Black coming soon…”
A few days ago, Drake’s Instagram showcased what he called a “first look” in the photo above. The bottle reads “Virginia Black American Whiskey” at 40 % ABV / 80 proof.
This mysterious announcement comes complete with a simple website (www.virginiablackwhiskey.com) with no details except the logo and email address as shown below.
BourbonBlog.com has reached out to to Drake’s Whiskey team for comment and more details.
We’ve also been asking some of our whiskey distillery contacts in Virginia who claim they don’t think the whiskey itself is being made in Virginia. However, these unnamed distillers may not know about such a secretive project.
