CINCINNATI — Northside Distilling Co. is teaming up with the Cincinnati Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired (CABVI) for the second year to release a bourbon for the visually impaired.
The CABVI and Northside Distilling are releasing “Braille Bourbon” Wednesday night.
The limited-edition bourbon is packaged in hand-numbered bottles that have braille on the labels. The bourbon itself is a 108-proof single-barrel bourbon aged for 6 and 1/2 years.
This is Volume Two of the bourbon, and last year, it sold out within a few weeks of its September 2022 release.
The bourbon aims to raise awareness as well as inclusivity for those who are blind and visually impaired in the community. The bourbon release also highlights the various services CABVI offers for those who are adapting to vision loss.
Following Wednesday night’s release, Braille Boubon Whiskey, which costs $74.99 per bottle, will be available beginning Sept. 21 for purchase both online and in-store at Northside Distilling Co. A portion of each sale will go toward CABVI, as well.
About Northside Distilling
Northside Distilling began as a basement hobby—two friends with a still, exploring their passion for authentic, high-quality craft spirits. Before long, word spread and a weekend pastime became a bona fide business.
To meet growing demand, operations were moved out of the basement to the family barn located in Cincinnati’s historic Northside neighborhood, where the brand was officially born and began expanding a line of spirits known for its local flair.
Northside continues to grow, and with another move—this time to Cincinnati’s vibrant downtown scene—Northside Distilling has further broadened its offerings of award-winning, authentic spirits with deep yet smooth taste profiles. With each sip, savor the flavor that is unique to the Northside.
Northside Distilling is Cincinnati’s 1st Downtown distillery since Prohibition. We currently produce bourbon, gin, vodka, American agave and seasonal rum as well as limited-edition specialty releases and private label spirits.
