Well played, Nick Offerman. If U.S. government approval of a label featuring his likeness and signature is any sign, the Parks and Recreation star will soon have his own Lagavulin, The Whisky Advocate’s Susannah Skiver Barton reveals.
Offerman’s Parks and Rec character, crusty bureaucrat Ron Swanson, has dropped by the Lagavulin distillery and even somehow bought a majority stake in it. The spark for that tie-in came from Offerman himself, who isn’t shy about flogging the Scottish single malt in real life. As Swanson would say, never half-ass two things. Whole-ass one thing.
