Exciting news! We were asked by General Dynamics Electric Boat to provide an ISC sparkling wine to christen the USS HYMAN G RICKOVER (SSN 795) submarine in July of this year!!!
Some of you may remember that we previously were honored to be a part of another special sub christening: Our ISC Blend 786 was used to christen the USS IILLINOIS (SSN 786). Pictured above is a photo of that christening in 2015.
Our winemaking team is now working on the creation of Blend 795. Just like our previous bubbly, for each bottle sold of Blend 795, a $5 donation will go to the USS Hyman G. Rickover Commissioning Committee.
Admiral Hyman G. Rickover, known as the “Father of the Nuclear Navy,” has a special connection to the state of Illinois. He grew up in Chicago’s Lawndale neighborhood. For more info on the USS Hyman G. Rickover and Admiral Rickover, visit ussrickover.org/.
Here are some more photos from the 2015 christening.
