Daviess County Bourbon and Ducks Unlimited announce three-year partnership

Beginning in 2023, the entire family of Daviess County Bourbon variants will be designated as Proud Partner of Ducks Unlimited

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (Jan. 11, 2023) – Ducks Unlimited (DU) and Daviess County Bourbon announced they have entered into a three-year partnership that designates the entire family of Daviess County Bourbon variants as Proud Partner of Ducks Unlimited – the highest partnership designation offered by the organization. The partnership officially commences in January 2023.

As Proud Partner, the Daviess County Bourbon brand family will soon feature a DU logo on all variant labels and other trade marketing materials, potentially to include in-store displays. The partnership also provides opportunities to engage in awareness-building programs through DU and Daviess County communications channels.

“We are excited to expand the relationship with the Daviess County brand,” said DU Managing Director of Corporate Relations Jim Alexander. “Our joint introduction of Daviess County Double Barrel Bourbon in 2021 was a resounding success, both with our membership and the public at large, and the experience cemented our partnership. We welcome the entire Daviess County brand family as Proud Partners, and we are eager to activate our partnership throughout the coming months and years.”

Launched in partnership between Lux Row Distillers (makers of Daviess County Bourbon) and DU 2021, Daviess County Double Barrel Bourbon proudly featured the DU logo, which will now be found on all Daviess County Bourbon variants. Additionally, DU supported the partnership through an ad in Ducks Unlimited Magazine, editorial support in other DU media channels and a series of DU premier events. DU plans a similar level of support to the entire Daviess County Bourbon brand family throughout the partnership period, including sponsorship opportunities for Daviess County Bourbon at the DU National Convention.

“Aligning the entire Daviess County Bourbon brand family with DU and its members and supporters was a logical next step, following our successful partnership when launching Daviess County Double Barrel Bourbon in 2021,” said Eric Winter, whiskey brand manager at Luxco. “DU members, along with other outdoor enthusiasts, have shown their appreciation for, and enjoyment of, premium bourbon. We are excited to expand our association with them by including the Proud Partner message on all Daviess County Bourbon bottles and packaging. Additionally, we look forward to finding other ways to connect with these groups as a Proud Partner over the next three years and potentially beyond.”

The Daviess County Bourbon family is available at retailers nationwide at a price range of $40-50 per 750ml bottle.
