Nick Offerman & Lagavulin Team Up On An 11-Year Islay Scotch Whisky

Oct 15, 2019

Category: Vices

Those with even a passing familiarity with the hit TV comedy Parks & Recreation should be aware of Nick Offerman’s ultra-manly no-nonsense character, Ron Swanson, and his affinity for scotch whisky. As it turns out, Offerman himself is actually quite invested in the spirit — both literally and figuratively — as the long-time spokesman has just unveiled his own Offerman Edition Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky under the Lagavulin label.

There aren’t too many actors we’d trust with spirit recommendations, let alone the actual production process. But Offerman has actually been involved with Lagavulin for quite some time — most notably via his viral Chrismas and New Year’s whisky-drinking celebrations. Alongside the distillery manager, Colin Gordon, Offerman actually tasted and hand-selected the 11-year spirit for this special release himself. As is in line with his tastes, the scotch itself bears the signature peat flavors in-line with the Islay region, as well as spices and notes of dried fruit. Said to have a worldwide release, you’ll have to stay tuned for pricing and availability of this Ron Swanson-approved spirit.
