While I am a big fan of summer and will never admit to rushing the beginning of fall, I do have to admit that I am ready for football season. As much as I love spending Sunday’s out in the sun, there is something truly wonderful about Sundays spent drinking and eating on the couch rooting for your favorite team (or fantasy football roster).
This 2014-2015 football season North American Whisky brand J.P. Wiser’s® announced it will be the Official Spirits Sponsor of ESPN Fantasy Football. Produced at the Hiram Walker Distillery in Windsor, Ontario, J.P. Wiser’s is the best-selling whisky family in Canada. It draws everyone from whisky drinkers to seasoned whisky enthusiasts with its unique portfolio including J.P. Wiser’s Rye, J.P. Wiser’s Spiced, and J.P. Wiser’s 18 Years Old. J.P. Wiser’s Rye, in particular, is a smooth, approachable and versatile whisky that tastes great neat, but also pairs well with mixers , such as cola or ginger beer.
