Donations from Pink Bourbon Campaign Total $14,562
Driftless Glen and partners raised nearly $15K in pink bourbon campaign donations for local cancer research in October 2021. Their pink bourbon campaign turned the labels on their flagship bourbon bottles pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
This past month was Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We thank you for your participation and support as we turned our Small Batch Bourbon bottles pink in October to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer! We really appreciate everybody who bought a bottle. Cheers to a cause that is near and dear to many of our hearts. Thousands of bottles of pink bourbon – 4,854 bottles to be exact – were sold across the country, with $3/bottle as the donation amount. In total, we are giving $14,562 to local cancer research, contributed by Driftless Glen, our distributors, and Citadel Beverages. Funds will be donated to the designated cancer research centers listed below in the coming weeks.

We believe that this inaugural year of our #GoPinkWithDG campaign was a successful starting point. We look forward to making it an annual event that will only grow as time and momentum continue! Look for pink bottles next year, in October of 2022, with new labels that have an even larger pop of pink. Again, we send our heartfelt thanks for your participation in our pink bourbon campaign. It is such a good cause and we are proud to make these great donations to local cancer research. Cheers, Driftless Glen!
