Alan Jackson Announces His Own Silverbelly Whiskey

Alan Jackson is joining the ranks of artists like John Rich, Thomas Rhett and more, by launching his own line of liquor. The Country Music Hall of Fame member just announced the launch of his own Silverbelly Whiskey, a new premium spirit distilled exclusively for, and hand-selected by Jackson.

The name Silverbelly comes from Jackson’s signature cowboy hat, which is actually the “silverbelly” color, alhtough many mistake it to be white. The whiskey was created in partnership with Silver Screen Bottling Co. & DSP-KY-10.

Jackson shared a humorous video on social media to promote the new liquor.

Silverbelly Whiskey not only earned the approval of Jackson, but of his daughter Mattie Selecman, a sommelier, as well.

“Crafted in honor of classic, bourbon style whiskey, Silverbelly tips its hat to the spirit at the heart of this country,” Selecman says. “Its smooth texture and medium-light body make it perfect to sip neat at the end of a long day or to raise in a toast of celebration, mixed in your favorite Old Fashioned or Manhattan cocktail. With a subtle kiss of oak and traditional flavors of caramel, spiced apples, and toasty brown sugar, Silverbelly is as American as whiskey comes – a true taste of home.”

Silverbelly Whiskey is described in a press release as “having an aroma of brown sugar, sweet apple, cherry, honey, and a taste that’s sweet smooth, and spicy; bright fall fruits with a light, silky texture on the mid-palate; soft caramelized oak tones are met with a savory wood spice on the finish.” It is currently available in 750ml bottles, and is 91-proof with 45.5% alc/vol.

Silverbelly Whiskey is available now in stores across Tennessee, with more states expected to be added shortly. It is also avaialble at

Jackson is currently on his Last Call: One More For the Road Tour, which was announced after the Georgia native revealed he has been battling Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, a rare degenerative nerve condition for the last ten years,

“I have this neuropathy and neurological disease,” Jackson said on the Today Show. “It’s genetic that I inherited from my daddy … There’s no cure for it, but it’s been affecting me for years. And it’s getting more and more obvious. And I know I’m stumbling around on stage. And now I’m having a little trouble balancing, even in front of the microphone, and so I just feel very uncomfortable.”
