James F.C. Hyde Sorgho Whiskey
Some 6+ years ago we made a $300,000 investment in a sorghum operation in the fields of Memphis, Tennessee. We did so because we were enamored with the miracle-like properties of the sorghum plant and the potential for its commercial success. Weve since discovered the miracle plant could also produce a remarkable “whiskey like no other,” which we have affectionately named Sorgho Whiskey®.
The American craft spirit industry is hot. Witness the recent acquisition of Utah-based craft whiskey producer High West Distillery for $160 million followed by the 2017 acquisition of George Clooney led Casamigos Tequila for nearly $1 billion. And our Sorgho Whiskey is gaining momentum, brand awareness and market traction in 3 key states – New Jersey, Kansas, and Nevada; and on board the most luxurious cruise liners in the world – Seabourn. We’re making our mark as were beginning to appear as an ingredient in whiskey cocktail recipe books and on cocktail menu’s in some of America’s finer restaurants like La Cave at Wynn Las Vegas.
And most recently, in a historic acquisition, we purchased Jersey Artisan Distilling, the distillery that makes our James FC Hyde Sorgho Whiskey. With the acquisition of this distillery, after spending 5+ years and investing nearly $2 million over that time, we have completed an unprecedented vertically-integrated sorghum seed to James FC Hyde Sorgho Whiskey supply chain. A truly unique and propriety asset with enormous potential for commercial success.
