To celebrate the return of the team's classic Kelly Green uniform and helmet, the Philadelphia Eagles have announced the launch of Bird Gang Spirits with two commemorative releases – Bird Gang American Straight Bourbon Whiskey and Bird Gang Vodka. Bird Gang Spirits are being produced locally in collaboration with BOTLD, Pennsylvania's source for a more adventurous selection of spirits.
The inaugural Kelly Green limited-edition Bird Gang Spirits pay tribute to an iconic era in Eagles history and will go on sale Wednesday, October 4, at BOTLD's Center City Philadelphia shop (119 South 18th Street) and online at BOTLD.com for statewide delivery. The Eagles and BOTLD will also host a fan pop-up event to purchase Bird Gang Spirits on Friday, October 6, in Lincoln Financial Field's Lot K from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
"The launch of Bird Gang Spirits commemorates a special chapter in Eagles history and creates another unique touchpoint for fans to celebrate the return of Kelly Green," said Brian Napoli, Senior Vice President of Corporate Partnerships, Philadelphia Eagles. "We are proud to be working with a local distillery like BOTLD that specializes in handcrafted premium spirits and blends. Their expertise and commitment to their craft have created a quality product for Eagles fans everywhere to enjoy."
Bird Gang American Straight Bourbon Whiskey (82 proof) offers rich and robust notes of corn, rye, and a hint of malted barley. Bird Gang Vodka (80 proof/gluten-free) is crafted from 100% corn and offers a smooth, clean, slightly sweet taste with subtle notes of corn and pepper.
"BOTLD is honored to work with the storied Philadelphia Eagles to produce Bird Gang Spirits, providing additional ways to engage with fans and the city we love and call home," said Andrew Auwerda, Founder, BOTLD. "We're also grateful to our partner, the Philadelphia-based, spirits-focused creative agency, WeHolden, who so perfectly evokes the nostalgia and enduring fervor of Eagles fans with their brand creation and bottle design."
Additional Bird Gang Spirits will be released by the Eagles and BOTLD over the next several years to commemorate significant milestones and historical team moments.
