Lewis gifted the first two bottles of his debut, limited edition of Ray’s Reserve to President-Elect Donald Trump and Vice President-Elect Mike Pence. All bottles will be available for purchase on Feb. 15 until sold out.

The Kentucky bourbon is the first of four major alcohol brands to be released through Daytoon Distributors, which Lewis co-founded and serves as CEO. The commemorative, numbered bottles given to Trump and Pence are intended to be a symbolic gesture of appreciation since Lewis knows that Trump does not consume alcohol.
