Lion’s Pride launch party has found its den at Sanctuaria

Saint Louis, MO (April 25, 2011) – Sanctuaria, voted as one of Saint Louis’ TOP 10 BEST NEW RESTAURANTS, will host the official launch party in the Lou for Koval Distillery’s newest spirit – LION’S PRIDE Organic Whiskey on May 24, 2011.  Meg Bell from Koval Distillrey will be on site to indulge guests with her wealth of information on this new aged whiskey.

Lion’s Pride Organic Whiskey is the first legal whiskey distilled in Chicago since Prohibition.  A single grain, single barrel whiskey distilled from 100% wheat, Lion’s Pride was made for the Midwest with local grains.  American Craft Spirits Review quoted it as “a new American craft style — younger, brighter, more
flavorful whiskey for a whole new generation of brown
spirits drinkers.”

Sanctuaria’s Mixologists, Matt Seiter and Joel Clark will create an exquisite cocktail menu for the evening in honor of the Lion’s Pride launch.  All selections will feature one of the featured whiskeys and will be specially priced for this fabulous event. For those of you who prefer your whiskey “straight up” – indulge your senses in complimentary samples of this sinful spirit  . . . a true whiskey lover’s dream!
