Redneck Riviera Whiskey (EAST: NSDQ) continues to celebrate the “work hard, play hard” slogan as the Queen of the Working Class, Granny Rich, set a new record during CMA Music Fest week at Frugal MacDoogal's, Nashville’s favorite liquor store. With over 200 bottles sold, her debut bottle signing event for the recently launched Granny Rich Reserve whiskey, created quite a bottle neck in the store as fans lined up out the door to have a shot of whiskey and an autograph with Granny and her famous grandson, country superstar and entrepreneur, John Rich. Granny Rich Reserve is touted as being “aged a little longer yet more refined, just like Granny Rich.” For more information, visit

About Granny Rich Reserve:  

Earlier this year, John Rich’s Redneck Riviera Whiskey launched a more aged and refined blend of whiskey appropriately named Granny Rich Reserve.  Already in 12 states, the smooth spirit is described as a premium priced blend of traditional corn whiskey, aged three years or more, blended with American single malt aged at least four years. It is designed to meet the expectations of the most critical whiskey drinkers, including Granny Rich herself. Many know her as the “Queen of the Working Class,” because she's lived through the Dust Bowl days, the Great Depression and World War II.  She’s owned an alterations shop for 19 years and still pulls a 40 hour work week — the epitome of the “Work Hard, Play Hard” brand slogan.
