Jamie uses Pumking Imperial Pumpkin Ale from Southern Tier Brewing Co. to create a beer liqueur which he uses as the foundation for the cocktail. With its soft yet rich flavor, Pigs Nose Scotch Whisky is the perfect compliment to the deep spice of the

The Discovery Channel’s Moonshiners Sneak Preview

Spirits

The Discovery Channel will debut Moonshiners this December, an all new series with a real life look at the moonshining men of Appalachia. Discovery says the show “tells the story of those who brew their shine – whether in the woods behind their house using camouflaged equipment or legally in their garages for local distribution – and the local authorities who try to keep them honest. The series show what life is like in the Appalachian Mountain region, a close-knit society where survival depends on resourcefulness and endurance. From hunting bear and raccoon to catching frogs and catfish, theirs is a world forgotten by modern conveniences.”

To me, it looks and sounds like they took the cast of Discovery’s Sons of Guns, put them in overalls and threw them in the mountains in Appalachia. We’ll see. Stay tuned this December.

A Child’s Right: ProvingIt.org

Beverage NewsOther Beverage

A Child's Right Proving It

The ProvingIt.org page for Koteshor School in Kathmandu, Nepal, which was one of five Mutineer sites in Kathmandu and installed with the support of Jordan Vineyard & Winery.

You may have noticed a theme on the Mutineer blog this week. Yup, water relief, and the hit parade continues as we take a look at ProvingIt.org by A Child’s Right (ACR), which tracks every ACR site on the planet in real-time.

For donors, it’s an opportunity to follow their donation from installation through the 10+ year lifespan of the system at the site, putting the emphasis on not only the system installation, but the long-term follow through and support. A plethora of reports are available, from information about the system to updates on any maintenance, water quality tests, hygiene education and more.

For ACR staff, it’s an opportunity to provide complete transparency around their work as well as harness the power of the internet and mobile phones to create an efficient and effective platform for collecting and communicating data from sites around the world with instant results.

Another intriguing aspect of ProvingIt.org is that it tracks the number of children with access to clean water at THIS MOMENT. If a system ceases to exist, the number goes down. If a system is added, the number goes up. It’s truly a living number and a reflection of ACR’s true impact at any given point in time. Taking it step further, ACR distinguishes between children and adult staff served in order to have more accurate data on the demographic that defines ACR: kids.

If you are just being introduced to the incredible work done by ACR, take a few moments to poke around the ProvingIt.org page and you’ll likely be amazed by the diverse and ambitious scope of the work they are currently involved with.

Here are the links to the ProvingIt.org pages for the the five Mutineer sites in Kathmandu:

Beverage NewsOther Beverage

Filmed in 36 hours by Mutineer Editor in Chief Alan Kropf, “Thirsty Children” chronicles Alan’s trip to Kathmandu, Nepal with A Child’s Right to observe the installation of five water filtrations at public schools in connection with Mutineer’s Clean Water Crusader campaign.

A feature story about the trip appears in the new issue of Mutineer Magazine, and can be read in it’s entirety on the new Water Relief page on MutineerMagazine.com.



Mutineer Magazine Partners with Cellar Angels to Support A Child’s Right

Beverage NewsWine

Cellar Angels

Two industry leaders are uniting for a single cause — to help A Child’s Right assure safe drinking water for children in Asia and Africa. Members of Cellar Angels will now be able to select A Child’s Right as a funds recipient whenever they purchase wine via the Cellar Angels website. Mutineer Magazine will assist in the program’s promotion and oversee marketing of the opportunity.

Cellar Angels is a unique wine philanthropy company specializing in providing artisanal wines to their members at a discount in the name of their partnering charities. The Cellar Angels member selects which charity the company donates proceeds towards and A Child’s Right is now an option. The two companies were brought together by Alan Kropf, Editor in Chief of Mutineer Magazine

“Water relief is fundamentally a beverage issue, and I’m repeatedly amazed at A Child’s Right’s effectiveness in bringing clean water to children in urban areas around the world. With Cellar Angels joining Mutineer Magazine to support the efforts of A Child’s Right, we are setting up a sustainable way to raise funds and awareness with long-term potential,” Kropf said.

Mutineer Magazine has been working with A Child’s Right since 2009, producing a list of awareness-building and fundraising projects including the 2nd Annual Mutineer Red Carpet Party in partnership with Amarula Cream, Mutineer Blue Carpet Dinner in partnership with Jordan Vineyard and Winery, Mutineer Holiday Comedy Festival in partnership with Don Roberto Tequila, Mutinous Battle Chai Ale in partnership with New Holland Brewing Co. and the upcoming 3rd Annual Mutineer Red Carpet Party in partnership with Luxardo and Chinaco Tequila. Mutineer’s recent water relief work with A Child’s Right culminated with Kropf’s visit to Kathmandu, Nepal to observe the installation of five water filtration systems funded through Mutineer projects and a special November water-themed issue of Mutineer Magazine which recaps the project.

Cellar Angels works exclusively with acclaimed Napa and Sonoma County artisan wineries to provide its members access to highly sought-after wines at discounts well below retail and then donates portions of proceeds to charity. Once a week, Cellar Angels members receive a private email indicating that week’s offer and exclusive member price, a custom video of the wine and winemaker, tasting notes and food-pairing recipe. The member has just five days to purchase before the opportunity ends.

“There is nothing more important in the production of exceptional wine than water. In fact, there’s nothing more important in life,” indicated Martin Cody, President of Cellar Angels. “Partnering with both Mutineer and A Child’s Right allows us the privilege to help make sure children have access to clean water.”

Eric Stowe, Executive Director of A Child’s Right, states, “Cellar Angels gives ‘wine pairing’ a whole new meaning. Pairing fine wine with charitable giving means that children who formerly drank contaminated water will now drink water that is clean and safe.” He goes on to say, “There’s a very old story about turning water into wine, but turning wine into water is something entirely new!”
