McGregor Blasts Tennessee Whiskey
While Conor McGregor has not been engaging very much on social media lately, he posted a photo of his jiu jitsu class this weekend, and would end up teasing his upcoming whiskey brand.
In a comment in the post above, a fan from Tennessee would praise McGregor and his work ethic, McGregor would thank the fan and then blast the state for their whiskey aging techniques.
”Thank you for this message. I recognize and respect Tennessee as solid whiskey distillers,” McGregor wrote. “Your methods of aging whiskey over 2 years, and in charred brand new barrels however, is a crime where I come from.”
”Using corn, rye or wheat over grain is another conversation altogether,” he continued. “However, forgetting your choice of ingredients, whatever they are, you must let those ingredients age sufficiently. Allow the ingredients the correct time to age and allow them to age in barrels as old as Whiskey itself. They deserve time to reach their maximum flavor potential. We do not even know what American whiskey truly tastes like, because to gauge (sic) a correct and fair opinion of it, it needs to be given the correct and fair time to age.”
”Thank you for this message however, I appreciate it and it motivates me to continue,” McGregor continued. “I respect your state, and your land, and I will be in Tennessee in the very near future. Along with all of the other major states of the United States of America.”
“I will be there with my own Irish made Whiskey for you all… I look forward to engaging more in this debate and introducing you to my master creation.”
As far back as last year’s fight against Floyd Mayweather, McGregor has been teasing a whiskey, and it seems it may soon be ready for the world to see.
