TULLAHOMA, Tenn., April 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Cascade Blonde, America's new favorite day-sippin' whiskey, is celebrating Earth Day by announcing its commitment to cleaning American waterways throughout the entire year. With the support of our friends at American Rivers, the leading river conservation organization in the nation, we've pledged to collect 100,000 pounds of waste from our waterways. This effort will help protect, restore, and conserve nature's greatest resource, because without fresh water, great whiskey isn't possible. Cascade Blonde will be kicking off this initiative at the Great Indy Cleanup in Indianapolis on Saturday, April 27.
What's even better than drinking delicious whiskey is making a positive impact in the communities where we live, work, and play. That's why we're teaming up with American Rivers to help power cleanups, because fresh spring water is integral to how we make our whiskey. We're also committed to replacing plastic with paper straws at Cascade Blonde events, perfect for sippin' slowly and safely.
"Cascade Blonde is all about a laid-back, easy lifestyle centered around bringing people together," said Jason Sorley, brand director at Diageo North America. "As an extension of this community-based ethos, we're especially proud of our work with American Rivers to inspire others to join the effort and keep our rivers and lakes clean."
Following cleanups, volunteers 21 and older in markets including Texas, Michigan, Indiana, Colorado, Minnesota and Virginia will be invited to celebrate their hard work at samplings at a local watering hole in the area, to taste the whiskey by kicking-back over a delicious Cascade Crush, our signature serve: Cascade Blonde American Whiskey + lemonade + orange wedge.
"We are thrilled to be teaming up with Cascade Blonde to clean up rivers nationwide this year," said Amy Kober, national communications director of American Rivers. "Their support makes it possible for American Rivers to mobilize tens of thousands of volunteers to keep our rivers and streams waste-free. Together, we're making a difference for clean water, our communities and our future."
Finally, just in time for warmer days on the water, Cascade Blonde recently announced it will be expanding to four new markets, in addition to Texas and Michigan where it splashed down last summer. Lake lovers and dock dwellers across the country will be able to enjoy their new favorite daytime sipper as it recently hit shelves in Indiana, Colorado, and Minnesota and is coming to Virginia this July.
Join us at our cleanups this year and follow along on Cascade Blonde's Instagram, @CascadeBlonde. Please remember, however you enjoy Cascade Blonde American Whiskey this summer, please do so responsibly.
