For whisky veteran John Glaser, the stars aligned when he began a career as a distiller well over a decade ago. So much so, he named his brand Compass Box Whisky after the constellation Pyxis. And much like the film with Streisand & Kristofferson, a star was born: The Compass Box signature whisky line. Perfect for Easter entertaining with family and friends.
John Glaser, Founder & Whiskymaker of Compass Box is regarded as one of superstars of his generation. The artisanal line he created targets the adventurous, seeking a refined taste. “I believe Scotch is one of the world’s greatest drinks”, comments Glaser. “And just as making great whisky takes skill, the fine art of making a great craft cocktail requires just the right touch. The spirit should be the main attraction”, adds Glaser.
Remarks Susan Pajak, Director of Learning & Development, R&R Marketing/Charmer Sunbelt,“Brown spirits are an increasingly important category in NJ. Younger, millennial drinkers find whisky sophisticated. And make it their brand of choice.”
Serve Compass Box as part of Easter dinner. And experience the range of styles; from light and fruity to the the more robust and bold. • Great King Street. An elegantly blended Scotch. Enjoy neat, on ice, with More >

Ah, “Sweet Home Alabama.” Whether it’s the old school Lynyrd Skynyrd version or the romantic movie featuring Reese Witherspoon and Patrick Demsey (aka Mc Dreamy), one thing is for sure: Clyde May’s Whiskey is perfect for ringing in the holiday season.
Clyde May, a World War II veteran returned home to Alabama to farm the land and became a legendary moonshiner. His whiskey: a true slice of Americana. It’s home-spun, with deep southern roots dating back to 1946. Jay Liddell, National Sales Manager, Clyde May’s remarks, “Our brand attracts consumers that are interested in craft whiskey steeped in the rich tradition of the South. And it tends to be the craft beer consumer who migrates to craft whiskey.”
Entertain this holiday with a Red Carpet Drink Gift (Click here to give the Gift of Clyde May’s from River Road Wine).
