Gold Bar Whiskey has created the official whiskey cocktail of Levi’s Stadium, enabling the 49ers’ Faithful to enjoy Gold Bar signature cocktails and an enhanced whiskey experience throughout the venue. The ultra-premium Gold Bar Whiskey collection (photos link) will be available everywhere whiskey is served in Levi’s Stadium including the new official Gold Bar Whiskey Bar inside Intel Gate A Plaza on the stadium’s main concourse.
“Our shared ties to the California Gold Rush of 1849 and customers throughout the Bay Area makes the 49ers and Gold Bar Whiskey a perfect pairing,” said Brent Schoeb, 49ers Chief Revenue Officer. “Courtesy of its top-shelf experience and prominent location, the Gold Bar Whiskey Bar will be an instant fan favorite at Levi’s Stadium.”
Outside the stadium, Gold Bar Whiskey is available with major retailers across California and will be activating within local bars and restaurants to cheer on the 49ers on game-days. Gold Bar Whiskey’s new designation as “The Official Whiskey of the San Francisco 49ers” will be promoted at events and across a variety of marketing channels.
“With five Super Bowl championships, an iconic history, and the state-of-the-art Levi’s® Stadium, we are proud to align our brand with the legendary San Francisco 49ers in one of the NFL’s first major spirit deals in history,” said Ellen Torvi, Director, Communications for Gold Bar Bottle Company. “Our partnership honors the 49ers’ rich history of success and celebrates many wins to come.”
The collaboration between the two Bay Area-born brands will expand in 2020 to include the production and distribution of a set of limited edition 49ers-branded commemorative bottles to be sold in premium retail locations.
