Old Forester Kingsman Golden Circle Statesman BourbonFollowing on from the GlenDronach distillery's collaboration with the new Kingsman The Golden Circle movie where the Speyside distillery marked the release of the movie with the premium GlenDronach Kingsman Edition 1991 Vintage single malt whisky it is now the turn of our American whiskey cousins, Old Forester to step into the Hollywood limelight.

To coincide with the general release in cinemas of the Kingsman: The Golden Circle movie today, Old Forester Kentucky Bourbon has released a new straight bourbon whiskey, named Old Forester Statesman, which plays an integral role in director Matthew Vaughn's 20th Century Fox film "Kingsman The Golden Circle", Old Forester Statesman will also be available for all you film and bourbon fans to enjoy from today.

In "Kingsman: The Golden Circle," our heroes face a new challenge when their headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage. Their journey leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organisation in the U.S. called Statesman, dating back to the day they were both founded. The Statesman, based in Louisville, Kentucky, act as Master Distillers to hide their true identity. In a new adventure that tests their agents' strength and wits to the limit, these two elite secret organizations band together to defeat a ruthless common enemy, in order to save the world, something that's becoming a bit of a habit for Eggsy. The sequel to "Kingsman: The Secret Service," "Kingsman: The Golden Circle" is directed by Matthew Vaughn and stars original cast members Colin Firth, Taron Egerton and Mark Strong, and introduces new cast members Jeff Bridges, Channing Tatum, Pedro Pascal, Halle Berry and Julianne Moore.

Old Forester say that they chose a unique taste profile when selecting the Statesman bourbon specifically for the film. Taking inspiration from the dynamic characters, Old Forester Statesman offers bold flavour blended to a smooth 95 proof (47.5% ABV), resulting in an exceptional balance of heat and spice.

Old Forester Statesman Whiskey is produced at the Brown-Foreman Distillery in Louisville, Kentucky with the same mash bill as Old Forester and will be available from today priced 45 from Amazon
