Nine Banded Whiskey kicked off tailgate season with the UT vs. USC game. We celebrated with burnt orange old fashioned cocktails and smoked meats by our friends at Rosso & Flynn. September 15th was not only game day in Austin, but it was also a special day to celebrate one of our favorite organizations, The Playing for Change Foundation. Playing for Change is a global nonprofit that connects & inspires the world through music and is very close to our hearts at Nine Banded Whiskey. We brought in Akin Francis to play live reggae music to celebrate & raise funds to support education through music around the world.
