As St. Patrick's Day approaches for us here at Henebery Celebrated Whiskey as well as for all those who observe the holiday for many reasons, we recall our individual and common Irish Heritage that is celebrated by all who claim The Emerald Isle as their ancestral home. We at Henebery most certainly do claim this and with great pride, that our inspirational founding father, Matthew Henebery, was indeed a proud and loyal son of Ireland hailing from County Kerry, before coming to America to stake his claim of "The American Dream" and eventually settling in our Nations Heartland. In Peoria, Illinois, which came to be known as the "Whiskey Capitol" of America during his time due to the abundance of locally grown grain and an unblemished so...

O’Gara Nights fundraiser to benefit Cruise 4 Kids – June 23, 2016

DARE MAXIMA VIRTUS which translates to Giving Is the Greatest Virtue is written on our bottle and it is a belief that has been passed down throughout our family. Our focus of giving back to the community has allowed us to be exposed to others who also believe in contributing to the community. This month we were at O’Gara Coach La Jolla in conjunction with Cruise 4 Kids.

On June 23, 2016, over 300 people graced the halls of Luxury Vehicle Dealership O’Gara Coach in La Jolla, California for a summer fundraiser to benefit San Diego’s own Cruise 4 Kids organization. Virtus Bank & Karma International sponsored the event, where attending guests were encouraged to cruise around and admire the luxury cars. The 1931 Rolls Royce Phantom II from the 1950 film “Sunset Boulevard,” was featured while guests were perusing amidst a superb group of local vendors and sponsors. Everlasting Entertainment provided the music to get the party going, while Legends showcased some of their incredible auction items (including a Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantel and Ted Williams signed photo collage.) Greek Fusion Cuisine Meze, The Nutritional Chef, and Mimi’s Kitchen private chef provided some delicious, savory snacks. Tito’s Vodka, Fortaleza Tequilla, and Henebery whiskey were there giving out tastings of their unique spirits. Taylor Gallegos of Live Wedding art, was there painting a live rendering of the iconic Rolls Royce, while Michael leaf displayed his artistic wood and metal work along side the Maseratis! Guests had fun getting creative with the photo op in front of the Lamborghini and a suitcase filled with cash! Event photog Chris Brake was there snapping pics of people as they entered the dealership. And Sarah McAllister was there with Henebery, giving love to the vendors and taking some pictures of Henebery co-founder, Jesse Fanning in action!
