The name stems from his legendary silverbelly hat, and features a partnership with Silver Screen Bottling Co. & DSP-KY-10, and each batch number is tied to one of Jackson’s number one songs, with the first batch paying homage to his 1990 hit, “Here In The Real World.”
The whiskey is 91 proof, AKA 45.5% alcohol by volume, and is priced around $40 a bottle.
Jackson’s daughter Mattie Jackson Selecman, who is a certified sommelier, says:
“Silverbelly tips its hat to the spirit at the heart of this country. Its smooth texture and medium-light body make it perfect to sip neat at the end of a long day or to raise in a toast of celebration, mixed in your favorite Old Fashioned or Manhattan cocktail.
With a subtle kiss of oak and traditional flavors of caramel, spiced apples, and toasty brown sugar, Silverbelly is as American as whiskey comes – a true taste of home.”
And now that the product has been out on the market for a few months, Jackson and his team is showing us the best ways to mix the whiskey.
And one of the first recipes?
The Grape Snow Cone recipe, inspired by one of AJ’s greatest hits, “Chattahoochee.”
In the video, Jackson’s daughter Mattie can be seen creating the mixed drink before our eyes, and the recipe states as follows:
