Here's the Whiskey That'll Be Served at Trump's Inaugural Ball

When Trump's presidential inauguration party gets underway tonight in Washington, D.C., his guests will be served a special blend of Leadslingers' Whiskey: a bourbon whiskey with a story and identity that is as patriotic as a Bald Eagle grasping an American flag and an assault rifle in its talons -- in fact, that's Leadslingers' logo.

"Leadslingers' whiskey is produced by seven combat veterans, from the US ARmy Rangers, USAF TACP, Special Forces, and Paratrooper communities. Their love for american and fine whiskey is what the company is all about. They wanted to craft a whiskey that was enjoyable and unrepentantly supported the Second Amendment. By remaining active in their civilian and military communities, Leadslingers' strives to set an example. Be proud of who you are. Be bold. No apologies."

The Creative Coalition and Trump's transition team commissioned Scissortail Distillery -- partners with Leadslingers' -- to create commemorative whiskey bottles for a special blend to be served exclusively at the Inaugural Ball.

"These bottles will be in D.C. for the Inauguration Ball and will be served at the open bar," Scissortail owner Garrett Janko said. "We were incredibly humbled to have this spectacular opportunity to create these bottles for the President-elect."

The 750mL bottle of whiskey bourbon is stamped with the Leadslingers' logo, with the addition of two lines of stars, the phrase "Make America Great," and the presidential and vice presidential inauguration seal. Smaller type near the top signifies the bourbon is a limited edition "President's Bottle."

Trump reportedly abstains from alcohol. His brother, Fred, was an alcoholic, and it contributed to his early death at just 42-years old.

Unfortunately, if you're looking to get a bottle for yourself and aren't invited to the party, there are no plans for them to be made available to the public. However, Scissortail has stated that they are working on something to put out for sale to honor the 45th president.
