If you’ve never watched Peaky Blinders, what are you waiting for? Regardless, the time is right to catch up on the first five seasons on Netflix. The sixth and final season of this epic series centered on Thomas Shelby, the leader of the Peaky Blinders, a powerful gang in early 1900s England, debuts on June 10. To celebrate the finale season of this highly popular television show, Bushmills is releasing a Peaky Blinders-themed whiskey called Bushmills Prohibition Recipe.

Made to taste like the whiskeys crafted before Prohibition when the show takes place, it was crafted to be an homage to Shelby and his family. Crafted by master distiller Colum Egan, it’s high-proof, non-chill filtered, and matured in ex-bourbon barrels. The result is a whiskey with notes of almond cookies, candied orange peel, toasted vanilla beans, and spicy cinnamon.

On top of that, the bottle itself was designed to recreate the vintage Bushmills Irish Whiskey bottle that was used as a prop in episodes of the show. So, it’s like you’re literally drinking the same whiskey that Tommy Shelby drinks. It has a few intricate details that were common in the early 1920s, including a visible cork lid and even blue-tinted glass. But that’s not all. It’s labeled as a product of the “Shelby Company Ltd.” and is adorned with the Shelby family emblem next to the Bushmills distillery. Both are visible above an image of Shelby himself with his head down.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to have entered into such a fitting partnership between our show, Peaky Blinders, and Bushmills,” Caryn Mandabach, producer and owner of Peaky Blinders said in a press release. “We are delighted the US fans can toast the launch of this historic, final season on Netflix with this limited-edition partnership whiskey. In typical Shelby fashion, Tommy is making his mark on the whiskey industry!”

If you want to get your hands on a bottle before the new season premieres, you can find bottles for the suggested retail price of $29.99 retailers nationwide and at online retailers like ReserveBar.
