It’s simple really. Peerless crafts its spirits with honest pride and precision. Our quality is surpassed by none where short cuts need not apply which is why we have decided to partner with Fetzer Vineyards. It is not an ownership; it is a partnership.


“The collaboration with Peerless signifies our long-term strategy of building a luxury wine and spirits portfolio,” said Giancarlo Bianchetti, CEO of Fetzer Vineyards. “We are excited to partner with a boutique producer who shares our commitment to the utmost in quality and craftsmanship, particularly as the rye whiskey category continues to outpace all other whiskies.”


“Fetzer Vineyards has an expert sales force, whose deep roots in the wine space will help bring Peerless Straight Rye Whiskey to high-end retailers in top U.S. markets,” explains Corky Taylor. “By tapping into Fetzer Vineyards’ vast network of distributors and buyers, we can shine the spotlight on this unique, meticulously crafted rye.”
