Legion M Launches Archenemy Space Whiskey, inspired by Joe Manganiello’s hit film “Archenemy”

Fan-owned entertainment company, Legion M is proud to introduce Archenemy Space Whiskey, inspired by their major motion picture with Spectre Vision, Archenemy, now available for purchase at select retailers and shipping nationwide.

Archenemy Space Whiskey is an even blend of two straight bourbon lots distilled in Indiana and bottled in California by Lost Republic Distilling Co. The first distilled in June 2012 and the second in August of 2015 — stored in traditional 53-gallon white oak barrels with a #2 char, and unfiltered to preserve all the color and flavor.

The resulting finished bourbon has a medium amber color. The nose has a woody oak aroma with dark raspberries and clove notes. The palate is full of vanilla, caramel, toffee and a clove/cinnamon punch. The finish is lingering butterscotch with cinnamon and spearmint.

“Everything we do is with the Legion M community of fans and creatives in mind. It seemed like a logical next step to bring the Space Whiskey fromArchenemy to life. We wanted the flavor of this bourbon to pack a powerful punch, channeling the cosmic themes of the film to create a blend that seems otherworldly.” said Legion M co-founder and CEO, Paul Scanlan.

The film,Archenemy, which stars Joe Manganiello and released on December 11, 2020, follows Max Fist (Manganiello), a local drunk who claims to be a superhero from the planet Chromium. He tells anyone who will listen that he was pulled into a wormhole, falling through time and space, and dropped to earth without any of his powers. No one pays any attention to Max except a teenager named Hamster (Skylan Brooks) who can’t get enough of Max’s stories. When Hamster and his sister (Zolee Griggs) get in trouble with a vicious drug syndicate led by The Manager (Glenn Howerton), Max takes to the streets as a brutal vigilante hellbent on proving himself as the hero no one believes him to be.

Archenemy Space Whiskey is Legion M’s latest film favorite brought to life. In September 2020, the company launched Cheddar Goblin Mac & Cheese, a consumable nod to an iconic moment in their psychedelic horror flick, Mandy, starring Nicolas Cage and directed by Panos Cosmatos.
