Hennessy Brings You The Blue Bird

They’re calling it their “Never stop. Never settle.” campaign, showcasing the story of legendary motorist Sir Malcolm Campbell’s historic breaking of nine land speed records in the 1920′s and 30′s. Considering the spirit of the campaign, I have to wonder if Sir Malcolm Campbell’s iconic racecar had brakes.

 

Blue BirdSee, Campbell was the kind of thrill seeker who broke land speed record after land speed record. Campbell, as it turns out, was also famous for being one of the few land speed record holders who did not die in a firey auto crash. He had a series of cars, all called “Blue Bird,” and Hennessy is touring a 24 foot replica of one of these fast, fast cars across America.

Along with the car and a timeline of Campbell’s accomplishments, Hennessy is showcasing samples of signature cocktails featuring Hennessy. Plus, this is your chance to enter a sweepstakes to win a trip to France, including stops at the Hennessy Distillery in Cognac and the Formula 1 Academy in Nice. If you can’t make it to the event, participate by tweeting @HennessyUS with the hashtag #wildrabbitchase.

We’re Expanding!

24You heard it right via Shanken News Daily, we’re expanding and boy is it going to be big!

Starting this July, Binny’s Beverage Depot in Lincoln Park (1720 N. Marcey St.) will start its expansion from a measly 33,000 square feet to 50,000 square feet, making it one of the largest beverage superstores in the world. Needless to say, we’re pretty excited about it!
In addition, the Lincoln Park location will also incorporate the notable Lincoln Park Pumping Station including a wine and craft beer bar.

At Binny’s we’re always looking for ways to bring more product to you and to give you a different kind of experience. But of course, it wouldn’t be possible without your committed business, so thank you!

We believe the expansion will be completed by October of this year. *Crosses fingers* But don’t worry, we’ll still be open for you during the construction.

Keep your eyes out for a grand re-opening this fall!

World of Whiskies 2013

 

We tell this story every year, and it gets better every year.

 

Last night was the 10th annual, big big Binny’s World of Whiskies event. It was bigger and better than ever. There were 75 tables holding more bottles of whiskey than we could count. There was a cake shaped like Mark Twain. Pop Tart wrapper space suits and a rocket. Live cigar rolling. A whole crowd of friendly whiskey enthusiasts. Cookies. All our rowdy friends in the spirits industry. Kilts. Cocktails. And then more whiskey.

 

Tons more pics of the event after the jump.

 

If you made it, be sure to head over to the Gallery on the Binny’s Facebook Page, where you’ll find even more pics, including pictures of you in front of the Binny’s logo wall. Tag all your friends! And like us while you’re there. See you in 2014!
