Six-time NBA champion, Scottie Pippen has joined forces with spirits wunderkind Dave Phinney to released a new bourbon called Digits.
Smooth from start to finish with hints of caramelized brown sugar, Digits features a black and white photograph of Pippen’s fingers splayed across the label. the expression is the first foray into the beverage industry for Pippen and was launched exclusively in Chicago this June.
“I’m thrilled to tip off DIGITS in Chicago exclusively, as I begin this next chapter of my personal journey,” said Scottie Pippen. “Chicago has meant so much to me, the experience and equally as important the people that inspired me and cheered me on, I wanted to toast with them first and foremost.
“My partnership with Dave Phinney has been remarkable from the start and I believe we have created a superb bourbon. We wanted Digits to be more than a bourbon, we wanted it to be a reminder of who we are individually and how we came together to create this bottle. I’ve always celebrated with bourbon, now getting to celebrate with my own is something very special to me.”
Distilled at Savage & Cooke and blended by Savage & Cooke master distiller Jordan Via, the expression has been bottled at 46% ABV. It is understood that Pippen was very hands-on with the Bourbon, even unpacking bottles by hand.
“Savage & Cooke, since its inception, has been a place of discovery and home to making opportunities for great spirits to come to life,” explained Dave Phinney. “Little did I know I would have an opportunity to add one of the greatest basketball players of all time in Scottie Pippen, to the Savage & Cooke roster, whose drive for another great moment would include us coming together to make what is a beautiful and championship level bourbon in Digits.”
