It's Always Sunny Gang Introduces New Whiskey Brand Called Four Walls

6:00 AM on a Monday

In news that brings together the the television show 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' and the whiskey world, Glenn Howerton, Rob McElhenney, and Charlie Day have announced a new whiskey brand called 'Four Walls' named after the four walls the gang calls home.

Glenn Howerton (Dennis) says of this:
We wanted to create a brand celebrating the four walls that have held our favorite memories in and kept our troubles out. We were shooting Season 15 when bars were shutting down all across America. So we decided to source some really great whiskeys and create something as a tribute to the bar and kick it off by giving back

This limited edition collection is comprised of two products. The first is a 15+-year-old, single-barrel, cask-strength Irish Whiskey. This will retail for $999 and is composed of 755 bottles. Each package is signed by Glenn, Rob, and Charlie.

The second release is a mix of hand-selected barrels of grain and malt Irish whiskeys blended with Pennsylvania Straight Rye Whiskey. This release comes in at 90 proof (45% alcohol) and retails for $89 per bottle. All proceeds from this collection will be donated to the Pennsylvania Restaurant & Lodging Association's HARP (Hospitality Assistance Response of Pennsylvania).

No tasting notes were provided and no available locations (outside of a live event tasting outside of Philadelphia), but I don't expect this to be available in Ohio. 

My Take

It's fun that The Gang created a whiskey. However, in terms of the actual alcohol, I'm not sure this would be any good and it's fairly expensive. There is a long history of gimmicky bourbons (Star Trek, Buster Douglass, etc.) and they usually turn out to be really bad. It's always concerning when the press release doesn't offer anything about the alcohol itself and focuses on the celebrities or hype. 

If you're a huge It's Always Sunny fan, this may be worth tracking down... but if you're interested in good whiskey or bourbon... this is one to probably stay away from.
