Los Angeles California.— Filmland Spirits announces its world premiere in the US market, featuring three key whiskey expressions: “Moonlight Mayhem!” – Bourbon, “Chaos in the moonlight! Extended Cut” – Bourbon Cask Strength, and “Ryes of the Robots” – Rye Whisky.
Filmland Spirits is revolutionizing the industry by creating A Blockbuster in Every Bottle. Combining their enthusiasm for whiskey, passion for film and dedication to storytelling, Filmland Spirits aims to bring people together through captivating stories and great tasting spirits. Designed with a cinematic mindset, Filmland approaches whiskey production much like making a movie. The creative team begins with their vision for an original retro B-Movie concept. This turns into a script with robots and monsters, heroes and villains and a plot that makes your mouth water. From there, Filmland Spirits designs an original pulp-style movie poster consistent with the B-movie genre; this becomes the front label of each expression, a truly unique innovation in the world of spirits. The bottle itself is tall, heavy and distinct, and is inspired by the world of cinema. Consumers will have the opportunity to preview each story on the back label showing a synopsis of the B-movie and key characters. Those eager to learn more about each story can visit the Filmland website to read snippets of the script, view storyboards, and even watch an animated trailer. Filmland’s award-winning spirits are sourced from the finest whiskey in the US. Once “on site” in Kentucky, they are blended to perfection, then finished and bottled. Filmland Spirits CEO Troy Bolotnick explains further:
“After a lifetime of blending passions for storytelling, filmmaking and whiskey, we are delighted to invite everyone to the premiere of Filmland Spirits! I’m incredibly proud of the team we’ve assembled and all the creativity and skill that has gone into our award-winning bourbons and rye. They are delicious and fun, outrageous and unique and I can’t wait for our audience of customers to turn off the lights, grab a bottle and enjoy the show!”
Prior to its launch, Filmland Spirits impressed tastemakers within the spirits industry by winning multiple awards at the 2022 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Filmland took home two gold medals; one for their small-batch cask-strength straight bourbon – “Moonlight Mayhem! Extended Cut” – and one for his small batch of straight rye whiskey – “Ryes of the Robots”. His expression for small-batch straight bourbon: “Moonlight Mayhem!” – received a silver medal. These medals are not only a testament to the quality of each whisky, but also demonstrate the team’s superior blending skills. We can expect to see this applied to future expressions as the collection expands.
