Old Forester, America’s first bottled bourbon, is partnering the upcoming film, Kingsman: The Golden Circle.
Due for release on September 22, the film is a sequel to the 2014 instalment directed by Matthew Vaughn and stars original cast members Colin Firth, Taron Egerton, and Mark Strong, and introduces new cast members Jeff Bridges, Channing Tatum, Pedro Pascal, Halle Berry, and Julianne Moore.
The film sees British secret service agents, Kingsman head Stateside to meet their U.S. based cousins, Statesman.
The first of its kind in partnership and product integration, Old Forester’s involvement goes beyond product placement, with the brand playing an integral role in the film. The Statesman agents are based in Louisville, Kentucky at a distillery with several of them also acting as Master Distillers.
To coincide with the release of the film, Old Forester will introduce Old Forester Statesman, which will be on sale from September nationwide, retailing at £45. This whisky will be sourced from hand-selected barrels matured in the warmest temperature locations of the Old Forester warehouse, creating a complex bourbon with a rich and deep flavour profile.
