Garrison Brothers Distillery Announces Operation Hurricane Tough
In Partnership with Team Rubicon,
A Bourbon Fundraiser For Victims of Hurricane Harvey
Hye, Texas (September 1, 2017) – Garrison Brothers Distillery announced today a unique way to give to the Hurricane Harvey rescue and relief efforts along the Texas Gulf Coast. On the day Harvey slammed into the Texas shore, the team at Garrison Brothers filled nine barrels of bourbon whiskey. The first 1,000 people who donate $100 or more via the website below to Team Rubicon, an organization that unites the skills and experiences of military veterans with first responders to rapidly deploy emergency response teams, will receive a complementary bottle of our limited release, 4-year-old, 100 proof Garrison Brothers Hurricane Tough Straight Bourbon Whiskey directly from the barrels filled that fateful day.
“Good bourbon has a way of making people smile in the midst of hardship. We want to put our bourbon to work,” said Dan Garrison. “We have friends, family and business partners all along the Gulf Coast, and our hearts are with them all the way. If one thousand people donate, we will raise more than one hundred thousand dollars.”
Please join us and make a donation of $100 or more to Team Rubicon.
Team Rubicon is a 501c3 non-profit organization directly benefitting families and individuals who lost everything to Hurricane Harvey. One hundred percent of the donations made to Team Rubicon will go directly to relief for the victims. The first one thousand donors who contribute $100 or more will receive a bottle of Garrison Brothers Hurricane Tough Straight Bourbon Whiskey in 2022. The campaign goal is to raise $150,000. Though everyone who contributes may not get a bottle, no contribution is too big or too small.
The bourbon will be available for donors at the gift shop at the distillery in Hye, Texas. Texas antiquated liquor laws prohibit a distillery from shipping bottles of liquor. Therefore, a $100 donor must present a valid driver’s license at the gift shop at Garrison Brothers Distillery, verifying they are over 21 years of age, to receive their bottle. Bottles cannot be retrieved via proxy. “As silly as this restriction is, at least it will enable us to look you in the eye, shake your hand and say thank you,” said Garrison.
Special note: After this release was drafted, Garrison Brothers Distillery’s distribution partner, Republic National Distributing Company, generously offered to donate $2 to Operation Hurricane Tough for every bottle of Garrison Brothers Boot Flask Bourbon purchased in the state of Texas between now and the close of 2017.
