Nick Offerman and Lagavulin have enjoyed a long and fruitful partnership dating back to his 45-minute yule log video for the whisky brand in 2015. Now, they’ve embarked on a new Caribbean-themed adventure—with a limited-edition bottling and a new 90-second “My Tales of Whisky” episode.

The video follows Offerman on a whimsical journey aboard his trusty sea vessel, where different doors in boat open up scenes of past Lagavulin adventures. He ends up at the Lagavulin distillery, where he savors a dram of Caribbean Rum Cask Finish with his friend Mr. Pinky, played by former Lagavulin warehouse manager Iain McArthur.

The spot was led creatively by former “Parks & Rec” producers Dean Holland and Morgan Sackett and Dunshire Productions. This Friday (May 10), Los Angeles residents 21 and over can experience Offerman and his whisky adventures firsthand at a multi-sensory installation in Venice Beach.
