Big and Rich‘s John Rich announced his Redneck Riviera whiskey with a party at his home on Saturday night. He spoke with journalists and music industry friends before the party, telling them all about the American-made whiskey.
During the press conference, he admitted he “had to run it by the greatest whiskey drinker that I personally know.” She’s been drinking whiskey for decades and she just so happens to be his grandma. That’s right, he needed Granny Rich’s approval for Redneck Riviera whiskey.
“She’s been a whiskey sipper since… she says 14 years old, which is probably true,” Rich says with a smile. He brought her some of his American blended whiskey and they sat down for a 10:30 AM tasting. Granny Rich is no stranger to a whiskey drink in the morning but this one was special.
