65-Year-Old Iconic Massachusetts Handcrafted Donut Brand Joins Forces with Rhode Island Craft Distillery to Create the Ultimate Donut Glaze for Dad



PRESS RELEASE /  June 1, 2020 (Boston, MA) – Kane’s Donuts and Sons of Liberty Spirits have come together again to create the ultimate Father’s Day treat. No, it’s not another tie or power tool, it’s a Whiskey Glazed Donut! This year, give dad something that won’t get lost at the bottom of a closet — a dozen whiskey donuts won’t last long enough for that. This bad boy will be available at all Kane’s locations beginning Monday, June 1st through Tuesday, June 30th.

The whiskey glaze is created using Sons of Liberty Spirits’ award-winning Battle Cry Whiskey, an American Single Malt born from a Belgian-style ale. Using 100% malted grains, Battle Cry incorporates rye malt and honey malt for added spiciness and sweetness, respectively. Fermented with a Trappist-style yeast strain and aged in newly charred American Oak Barrels, Battle Cry is a unique experience from beginning to end – hints of dark fruit and spices, such as anise and black licorice, with a distinct sweetness.

Kane’s boiled down the Battle Cry to cook out most of the alcohol and then blended it with sugar, local organic honey, and butter to craft a divine whiskey glaze fit for a king, like dad! Since this donut is too good to only serve for one weekend, they have made it one of their June flavors of the month!

In addition to the Battle Cry Whiskey Donut, Kane’s is also featuring three other flavors of the month, a Raspberry Crunch Donut, Reese’s™ Peanut Butter Cup Donut, and Kane’s Gluten-Free Lemon Poppyseed Donut.


The above-mentioned flavors of the month are available at all Kane’s locations beginning June 1 through 30.
