Special Event featuring
Ray ‘BOOM BOOM’ Mancini and his Boom Boom Bourbon

Meet Ray ‘Boom Boom’ Mancini on Saturday Sept 14th from 4-7PM at the Cleveland Whiskey distillery for a local launch of the second round of his signature Boom Boom Bourbon. He will be autographing bottles and talking with fans. The 21 and over event will include the opportunity to taste this award-winning bourbon finished in maple syrup barrels.

Hosted by Cleveland Whiskey and Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini, both will be at the event to answer questions and tell the tale of how this “gentleman’s drink, a champion’s bourbon” came about from their creative Ohio partnership, born and bottled right here in Cleveland. Come join us, meet Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini and get your limited release Boom Boom Bottles signed.

About “Boom Boom” Bourbon/Ringside Whiskey:

“We started this journey back in a rust belt city, Youngstown, in 2014. In Youngstown one can find more boxing World Champions per capita than anywhere else in the world. Our team at Ringside Whiskey wanted to honor the boxing legacy by honoring the boxers that made history. History proved many fights were carried out in empty lots, where spectators were standing RINGSIDE. Most fighters then and now fight for glory, the winner crowned with gold medals or Championship Belts! Today, Ringside Whiskey is gaining popularity in the world of boxing for highlighting those who found their way to the top! Ringside Whiskey has teamed up with local distillers, who themselves are fighting by challenging the old ways of bourbon whiskey, by carving a path of their own! We hope you like what we’ve done. Enjoy!”
