Whiskey for Whiskers Event to Benefit KC Pet Project

Donate by drinking at local KC restaurants and bars!

During the month of April, more than 50 locations in Missouri and Kansas will be a part of Whiskey for Whiskers, which is a benefit to support the pets of KC Pet Project. Each participating location will feature curated whiskey cocktails featuring Nelson’s Green Brier Tennessee Whiskey. A portion from every cocktail benefits the pets of KC Pet Project.

Nelson’s Green Brier Tennessee Whiskey is a remarkable family recipe resurrected from the founding day in 1860 with the first bottling since 1909.  Andy & Charlie Nelson launched Nelson Brothers Whiskey with a single ambition:  introducing the 21st Century to a whiskey that honors the exacting standards for their great-great-great grandfather, Charles Nelson.  Painstakingly filtered through a mellowing bed of sugar maple charcoal and aged in new charred oak barrels, it’s easy to taste why Charles Nelson’s wheated mash bill recipe and meticulous process set the standard by which all future Tennessee Whiskeys are judged.

Passport-style booklets featuring all participating locations and cocktails will be available for pickup closer to the month of April at select locations.

“KC Pet Project is honored and thrilled to be involved in this exciting event,” said Tori Fugate, chief communications officer with KC Pet Project. “We’re so grateful to Nelson Green Brier Tennessee Whiskey, Constellation Brands, and all the participating locations for helping our pets in this way. As we prepare for a very busy spring and summer, these types of events are truly lifesavers for the pets in our care as they help us provide medical care and support for thousands of local animals.”
