Rivulet™ Artisan Pecan Liqueur Unveils Signature Drink “7th & Main”
LOUISVILLE, Kentucky – June 20, 2014 – Rivulet Artisan Pecan Liqueur has just unveiled its signature drink called the “7th & Main.” After recently introducing its highly decorated small-batch artisan liqueur into Kentucky, Rivulet partnered with a leading mixologist at the bar and restaurant Proof on Main, situated across the street from its headquarters at the corner of 7th and Main streets in downtown Louisville, Kentucky. Kentucky has become one of America’s leading craft spirits markets and globally renowned for its bourbon distillation, barrel aging and heritage.
Rivulet teamed up with Proof’s noted local mixologist Christopher Wilkins to experiment and create a signature drink that builds on the uniqueness of Rivulet’s luxury liqueur profile. As Proof and Rivulet are both located on Main Street, in the heart of Louisville’s historic “whiskey row,” Chris thought it appropriate to build a cocktail with Rivulet and a small-batch Kentucky Bourbon as the base. Chris’s endeavor created the “7th & Main” cocktail. Consisting of Rivulet Liqueur, Kentucky Bourbon, and Campari, served up with an orange peel garnish, the 7th& Main delivers intrigue and relaxation with a splendid and luxurious taste profile.
- 1.5 oz. Rivulet Liqueur

“When the folks from Rivulet asked me to create a signature drink for their new luxury liqueur, I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to showcase Rivulet with Kentucky’s signature product,” said Chris Wilkins, mixologist at Proof on Main. The delicate pecan notes of Rivulet, combined with the bourbon and then Campari, provides a delicious profile and showcases the versatility of these product together,” he said.
“We are very excited to be able to introduce Rivulet into our home market of Kentucky and partner with our neighbors at Proof to introduce this fine cocktail,” said James B. Marshall, the managing director of C88 Holdings, LLC, the producer of Rivulet Artisan Pecan Liqueur. “We know that consumers and the trade in Kentucky have become accustomed to tasting and purchasing the finest small batch spirits available, certainly because of all the distilling and barrel aging expertise in this great state. We are obviously quite proud of our quality story, and soon consumers throughout America and around the world will be able to make Rivulet part of their luxury spirits repertoire,” he said.
Rivulet will be handled through a strong partnership with Republic National Distributing Company (RNDC) of Kentucky throughout the state. “Rivulet Liqueur is a unique luxury spirit product, and one which fits well with our premium portfolio throughout the state.
