Escape the ordinary and dive into a tropical vacation – all without ever leaving your home, thanks to Watertown Whiskey’s Coconut Whiskey. This All-American twist on a much-loved classic is your ticket to a flavorful adventure, breaking traditions and exciting tastebuds from ocean to shining ocean.

Like a Vacation in a Bottle

As you pop open a bottle of Watertown Whiskey’s Coconut Whiskey, you’re greeted with the hint of vacation lingering in the air, the refreshing scent of coconut tingling your senses. Born from an adventurous mindset and a desire to go against the grain, this whiskey offers a blend that is as robust as it is unconventional. Watertown Whiskey encourages consumers to escape the ordinary by providing a 73-proof premium low-sugar whiskey that offers a lively, tropical coconut flavor.

Watertown Whiskey emphasizes the perfect balance between less sugar and a stronger blend. It combines the robust essence of traditional American whiskey with the lighter, refreshing notes of coconut. The result? A unique flavor profile that’s rich yet surprisingly smooth. It’s a delightful blend that breaks away from whiskey norms and offers a refreshing, tropical twist.

Coconut is like magic water- it not only repletes the minerals lost due to alcohol consumption but also boosts your overall health. Coconut water is rich in potassium, electrolytes, fiber, and natural sugars, all of which are needed to replenish the dipped levels induced by alcohol.

The Inspiration

The inspiration for a coconut whiskey came from Co-Founder Mikey Bortone’s time as a participant on Survivor: Micronesia, also known as Fans vs. Favorites. Living on a remote island, Bortone and his cast mates had little to eat or drink other than coconuts. Since then, he has always enjoyed the refreshing taste of coconut and his go-to cocktail became coconut water and whiskey. Now, he is bringing his signature drink to life with Watertown Whiskey.

“I’m excited to introduce the best coconut whiskey to hit the shelves nationwide. Shoot it or sip it – Watertown Whiskey is a refreshing, low-sugar, and flavor-packed whiskey that can be served straight up or in mixed drinks,” says Mikey Bortone, CEO and co-founder of Watertown Whiskey. “We developed a unique blend of traditional rye and revitalizing coconut flavors to create a taste of paradise that you can enjoy with friends or family, whether you’re out at an event or having a nightcap at home. This will become every whiskey drinker’s go-to brand.”

A Collaboration Amongst Friends

Bortone created Watertown Whiskey alongside his longtime friends and co-founders Steve Cicarelli and Mark O’Donnell. The name pays homage to their hometown of Watertown, Massachusetts. As experienced executives with a knack for innovation, they saw an opportunity in the spirits market for a refreshing, low-sugar coconut whiskey that doesn’t compromise on taste. After several rounds of taste-testing and getting the flavor “just right,” Watertown Whiskey is a big hit across the USA. 

The Enjoyment Doesn't Stop at Just the Drink.

The Whiskey Colada

But the real star of the show is the “Whiskey Colada.” This unique cocktail is the ideal display of what Watertown Whiskey stands for—breaking traditions while creating a mesmerizing blend of flavors. The blend of Watertown Whiskey, coconut water, and pineapple juice, accented with a twist of lemon or lime, creates a tantalizing concoction that transports you right to a beachside paradise. For those who enjoy an extra dash of coconut, a splash of Malibu rum is always on the table.
