Defiant Whisky

Defiant Whisky, American Single Malt, sponsors February’s Fall/Winter 2014 Nolcha Fashion Week: New York which runs February 10th-13th, 2014.

Defiant single malt whisky starts with water drawn from deep under the distillery that is of such natural purity, it is not altered in any way. They use 100% malted barley, cold-ground on a custom roller mill. The freshly milled grist begins the mashing process just moments later, and specially cultured yeast, expertly pitched, gives it life. A hand built copper potstill captures the elusive spirit. Toasted American white oak softens the whisky developing a rich, amber color and delicate notes of honey, vanilla, caramel and tannins.

“We are very excited to be sponsoring Nolcha Fashion Week,” said Tim Ferris Founder of Blue Ridge Distilling Co., Inc “Rolling out Defiant Whisky in New York on February 1st and February 10th being introduced at Nolcha during New York Fashion Week is a spectacular combination for our brand.”

Guests will be able to enjoy Defiant Whiskey throughout Nolcha Fashion Week: New York, specifically at the dedicated bar before and after the runway shows held at Pier 59th showcasing independent fashion designers from around the globe.

Arthur Mandel, Nolcha Fashion Week Co-Founder comments: “We welcome Defiant Whisky to Nolcha Fashion Week and are excited to share their smooth blend with our guests. We look forward to engaging and establishing a personal relationship for Defiant Whisky with fashion’s most avid influencers and trendsetters.”

This season’s events will run February 10th-13th, 2014, including individual and collective runway presentations, an exclusive bloggers brunch, fashion lounge, networking events and an official fashion week closing party.
