Tulsa-based spirit OilFire gives back
The new company supports Tulsa Roughnecks FC, Boys and Girls Club, Goodwill, Oktoberfest, Tulsa Little Jam and Mayfest.
It’s the wildcatter days of Tulsa. An oil well fire was just extinguished and locals celebrated with a naturally flavored rye whiskey.
Ken Williams knew of this “legend” and spent years researching and testing recipes, culminating in the creation and trademarking of OilFire Rye Whiskey.
Williams and his wife, Amber, started a business based on this legend and as it grew, would share the success by supporting the community through the endeavor.
“OilFire Rye Whiskey believes as a successful member of the community, we have a responsibility to help those that are less fortunate and contribute to the common good,” Williams says. “Volunteer groups and nonprofit organizations do so much to help the communities that all of us are a part of, but they can’t do it alone. We, like many, enjoy the intangible benefit of giving.”
The couple always wanted to create a gift that could be shared with clients, friends and family. Williams is the founder and chairman of Williams, Partners and Affiliates Ltd., Family Wealth Advisors Institute and the Champion World Network.
OilFire is a premium spirit consisting of 95% rye whiskey and 5% liqueur, conforming to each consumers’ palate with natural flavors of vanilla, cardamom, cinnamon, chocolate and caramel.
With its creation, Williams set forth a foundation that this company would give back to Tulsa. Already, OilFire has supported the Tulsa Roughnecks FC, Boys and Girls Club and Goodwill, as well as community events like Oktoberfest, Tulsa Little Jam and this month’s Mayfest. It is the first liquor to be served at Mayfest.
OilFire can be found at 15th Street Wine and Spirits, Grand Vin Bottle Shop, Parkhill and Parkhill South Liquors and Wine. Visit oilfire.com for more information.
