Heaven Hill Brands, a large company behind several well-known spirits, woke up this week, expressing disappointment when they learned that some customers were using their Rittenhouse Straight Rye whiskey to celebrate Kyle Rittenhouse’s not guilty verdict, 18 years old.

“We were disheartened to learn that some people and companies were using our Rittenhouse Straight Rye Whiskey brand to celebrate the verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse case, despite the loss of life caused by these events,” Heaven Hill Brands said of the social networks this week. referring to Joseph Rosenbaum, a pedophile sex offender, and Anthony Huber, who pleaded guilty to charges of strangulation, suffocation and domestic violence; both men were shot by Rittenhouse in self-defense.

“There is no connection between our Rittenhouse Rye brand, which was launched after the ban to commemorate Rittenhouse Square, and this case,” the company said.

“We firmly believe that in serious cases like this, where lives have been lost and people deeply affected, there is no cause for celebration, but rather a careful reflection on how we can do it. of the world a more peaceful and respectful place for all. “, he added.

The statement did not appear to be well received by social media users, who criticized the company for its involvement.

“Why are you commenting on this? An innocent man was acquitted. This is a good thing. Spare me your false concern for those who would be murderers ”, the one noted.

“You will be happy to know then that I will not be purchasing your Rittenhouse Straight Rye whiskey and I will make sure to tell everyone I know not to buy Rittenhouse Straight Rye whiskey … I prefer my whiskey not to be accompanied from a list of prohibited uses… “another rang in.

“Maybe consider getting into the seltzer market if you’re so concerned about your image among the anti-self-defense mob,” another suggested.

On Friday, the jury returned the verdict of not guilty for Kyle Rittenhouse, who was facing two charges of murder, one charge of attempted murder and two charges of reckless endangerment.

Speaking to Tucker Carlson in an interview aired Monday, Rittenhouse said he believed they came to the right verdict because the case was none of his concern; it was rather the fundamental right of self-defense.

“I thought they came to the right verdict because it wasn’t Kyle Rittenhouse on trial in Wisconsin – it was the right to self-defense at trial,” the 18-year-old said. “And if I was convicted … no one would ever have the privilege of defending their life against abusers.”
