Wollersheim Red White & Blue American Whiskey raises $50,400 for veterans
504 bottles sell out in 2 hours
PRAIRIE DU SAC, Wis. — Wollersheim Winery & Distillery is donating $50,400 to Wisconsin Veterans after a whiskey fundraiser.
The profits come from a one-of-a-kind whiskey. Red White & Blue American Whiskey is made with red, white and blue corn that is grown by a local farmer.
The amount of each color corn used is proportionate to the American flag. That’s 42% red, 41 ½% white and 7% blue. The whiskey was aged for three years in Wisconsin oak barrels.
The bottles went for sale at 10 a.m. Saturday for $100 a bottle. All 504 bottles sold out in just two hours.
Wollersheim is donating profits from every bottle sold directly to Wisconsin Veterans.
