Grain & Barrel Spirits

 has announced a long-term licensing agreement with 

Elvis Presley Enterprises

 to launch a pair of Elvis Presley-themed whiskeys. The new brand joins the company’s lineup, including 

Chicken Cock Whiskey

, which the team resurrected to its Prohibition-era glory, 

Dixie Vodka


Virgil Kane Lowcountry Whiskey

 and the recently launched 

High Goal Luxury Gin

Both expressions – rye and whiskey – were sourced and blended by a team of whiskey experts and bottled in Tennessee, where Elvis began his career and called home. 

Elvis Rye is a 90 proof (45% ABV) straight Indiana rye, while Elvis Whiskey is a 90 proof (45% ABV), Tennessee straight whiskey.  

“Given our expertise within premium whiskey, the Elvis expressions are a natural fit for Grain & Barrel Spirits,” says Matti Anttila, founder, Grain & Barrel Spirits. “Elvis was one of the most significant cultural icons of the 20th century and continues to inspire his fans today. We look forward to launching the brand, which is sure

to be a highly sought-after collector’s item.” 

Both expressions feature a photo of the “King of Rock ‘n’ Roll” in his prime and pay homage to two of the singer’s nicknames: The King (rye), and Tiger Man (whiskey). The labels, which were created by Alyson Design, also feature references to Presley, including his signature and the letters “TCB” printed on the neck of the bottle, referring to “Taking Care of Business,” a phrase that was the mantra for Elvis and his Memphis Mafia. 

“We are incredibly pleased to join forces with Grain & Barrel Spirits, an industry-leading spirits innovator and a natural partner for the Elvis Presley brand,” says Marc Rosen, president, entertainment, Authentic Brands Group, which owns Elvis Presley Enterprises. 

The Elvis whiskeys are now available for pre-order 


 and will roll out nationally this fall.
