Tutta Bella + Heritage Distilling Co. Serve Up a Cocktail for a Cause this Movember
Combine an award-winning distillery + a nationally-renowned Neapolitan pizzeria and mix-in the memory of one of Hollywood’s most iconic mustaches.
Each November, The Movember Foundation encourages men to grow mustaches to bring awareness to major health issues faced by men, including prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention.
For the sixth year, we have created a cocktail named after someone with a memorable mustache to help raise funds and awareness of The Movember Foundation. Past cocktail names included: Groucho Marx, Magnum PI, and Freddie Mercury.
This year’s cocktail ~ The Burt Reynolds ~ is available from November 5 to December 2, 2018. A portion of the proceeds from our annual cocktail benefits The Movember Foundation.
The Burt Reynolds
Heritage Distilling Co. Elk Rider Rye, green chartreuse, angostura bitters, fresh lemon, absinthe wash ~ $12
“The Burt Reynolds is an updated take on the Sazerac combining the classic rye impression with a delicate balance of chartreuse and absinthe to create a cocktail that contains both the 70’s machismo and 80’s charm of Mr. Reynolds himself,” said Shawn Findley, mixologist, for Tutta Bella Neapolitan Pizzeria.
“Heritage Distilling Co.’s Elk Rider Rye is delicious and complex featuring flavorful notes of orange, clove, and honey with a lingering finish of pepper and spice. We knew that Heritage would be the ideal partner to bring this cocktail for a cause to life.”

About the Movember Foundation
The Movember Foundation is the only charity tackling men’s health on a global scale, year round. We run awareness and fundraising activities, with the annual Movember campaign in November being globally recognized for its fun, disruptive approach to getting men to take action for their health. During Movember, men and women around the world raise funds by growing or supporting a moustache, getting physically active, or by hosting or an event. Not only do these commitments raise vital funds, they also generate powerful and often life-changing conversations. Millions have joined the movement, raising $710M to help us fund more than 1,200 men’s health projects focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. We have one goal: to stop men dying too young. To learn more about the Foundation’s work, please visit: https://us.movember.com.
