The new line includes a premium Carroll Shelby Bourbon Whiskey and Carroll Shelby Vodka, packaged in a collecting bottle, each with its own number.
“Carroll Shelby has risen from automotive icon to pop culture legend,” said Ryan Chaves, CEO of GLACIER45 Distillery in a prepared statement. “His legacy as an automobile designer, racing driver, entrepreneur, and author has created a huge following over the past six decades. The GLACIER45 Distillery was licensed from the company he founded to give all of these fans another way to celebrate Carroll Shelby through a line of premium spirits that reflect his passion for performance. Distribution in the western United States continues to expand as the news of these collector’s bottles spreads. “
The Carroll Shelby Bourbon Whiskey is described as a particular twist on the distillery’s bourbon recipe, specially made as 98 proof, as the number 98 was Shelby’s personal racing number that was used on several racing cars he drove and over the years built. The Carroll Shelby Vodka is an 80-proof vodka that is distilled with GMO-free / kosher corn, which makes it naturally gluten-free and gravity fed extensively.
“Carroll Shelby and his racing team celebrated their victories with almost as much enthusiasm as they deserved,” said Neil Cummings, CEO of Carroll Shelby Licensing. “After working closely with Carroll for decades, I am confident that he would love the quality of the new premium bourbon whiskey and vodka. Both were made and performed to a level that would meet with approval. “
With a limited edition of just 2,000 of the Carroll Shelby Bourbon and 3,000 of the Carroll Shelby Vodka available, the bottlings are exclusively available at the GLACIER45 Distillery in Oregon, 10 Lee’s Liquors locations in Las Vegas and Vendome Wine & Spirits in California. The Carroll Shelby liquor collection can only be shipped within California Vendome Wine & Spirits-Toluca Lake, California.
