FOR MORE INFO & TO APPLY VISIT @HUDSONWHISKEY on Instagram
New York, NY (June 2, 2021) – Born and bred in New York, Hudson Whiskey represents a spirit as bold as its home state, and is deeply in tune with the challenges of fellow New Yorkers. Proudly the first whiskey distillery in New York, Hudson has matured over the years, experiencing all of life’s pleasures and afflictions along the way. And while often amplified in N.Y. — where every inch of space is extremely valuable — a bad roommate is an affliction anywhere. That is why, today, as its new whiskey offerings and fresh new packaging rolls out across the country, Hudson is also on the move. The whiskey brand is grown up and ready to be the best roommate ever – offering to move into your apartment, ready with a rent check.
No longer do you need to come to New York to enjoy an evening with Hudson, now the whiskey is coming to you. Anyone in need of a new roommate, or a little extra support, can enter by sharing their roommate horror story (past or present) on Instagram or Twitter and using #HudsonRoomies #Contest and # your state abbreviation (ex: #IL) for a chance to win (subject to the full terms and conditions found here).
“We’re so excited to continue our national expansion, bringing fans across the country a whiskey as bold as the state it hails from,” says Paul Coffey, Senior Brand Manager of Hudson Whiskey, “Hudson Whiskey is New York attitude distilled, so as a resident, the brand feels your pain when that city lifestyle bites back! For five fans nationwide we’re ready to help…in the form of a rent check and whiskey, of course.”
At the forefront of the American craft spirits movement, Hudson Whiskey started out like many New York stories, with a daring proposition. In this case, to make New York’s first bourbon ever and to open the first distillery in the state since prohibition. Now, ever evolving and always exciting, Hudson Whiskey’s reinvented portfolio is rolling out nationwide with a new look and feel inspired by the New York subway system. Flagship variants include Bright Lights, Big Bourbon and Do The Rye Thing, with perennial favorite Short Stack, a rye whiskey finished in maple syrup casks, and Back Room Deal, a one-time limited-edition finished in peated Scotch barrels rounding out the new offering.
With a statement as spirited as its new lineup, five Hudson Whiskey fans across America will have half of the average rent of a 1bd in their city (via Rentdata.com) covered by Hudson for an entire year. 79 million adults across America currently share a living space, and whether it’s a small East Village studio or a single-family outside of Austin, TX, Hudson is ready to move in. Residents of all 50 states and Washington, DC are eligible, simply enter between June 2 – June 23 for a chance to win the ultimate roommate for a year.
