October 5, 2023 (press release) –

Mash & Mallow, a new craft whiskey brand, announced its debut whiskey with flavors of rich chocolate, toasted marshmallow and graham cracker for an authentic s’mores-influenced experience. Inspired by the great outdoors and reminiscent of long nights beside the fire, the premium whiskey presents a smooth, smoky finish perfect for crisp fall nights ahead.

Founded by Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Fame Whiskey Maker, Kaveh Zamanian, in partnership with Pernod Ricard, Mash & Mallow is yet another demonstration of Zamanian’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of whiskey making.

Mash & Mallow exudes a smoky aroma with a subtle melding of flavors such as graham cracker, chocolate, roasted marshmallow and sweet confectionary sugar. On the palate, consumers can expect a liquid that retains a strong whiskey character and a wood-oak finish that is sweet with a subtle smokiness. Roasted and toasted to perfection, the whiskey’s mash bill features 97% corn whiskey and 3% rye whiskey, alongside added flavors.

“Today’s whiskey drinkers continue to embrace non-traditional and classic culinary recipes in spirits. Mash & Mallow is a bold, simple and irreverent whiskey with the nostalgic smack of s’mores toasted by the fire,” said Zamanian. “I wanted to create a smooth whiskey that is so good you’ll take it with you anytime adventure calls – from your local bar to an adventure in the great outdoors. I am excited to finally share Mash & Mallow and hope to continue inspiring a new generation of thrill-seekers through unexplored flavors.”

This is the second launch in a series of collaborations between Zamanian and Pernod Ricard. In August, Mary Dowling Whiskey Company announced the debut of its premiere whiskey lineup, featuring two distinctive expressions: Tequila Barrel and Double Oak Barrel.

The brand’s commercial support in the U.S. is led by Castle Brands. Mash & Mallow is available for purchase at select retailers in CA, CO, FL, GA, IL, KY, LA, MA, MD, MI, NJ, NY, SC, TX, WA and WI. The 750ml bottle has a suggested retail price of $32.99 and is 35% ABV (70 proof). Must be 21 or older to purchase.
