Catalyst Spirits’ Howler Head, the banana-flavored Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, and UFC, the mixed martial arts organization, announced the launch of its first-ever charitable campaign in partnership with Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors (JAH4WW).

As part of this campaign, Howler Head will launch a limited-edition “Howler Head for Heroes” bottle with $1 from every unit purchased supporting JAH4WW’s mission of providing much-needed housing for wounded veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan. The limited-edition bottle will serve as the first of an annual collectible series of bottles from Howler Head, with a portion of proceeds benefiting select veteran-based non-profit organizations.

“I’m a huge fan of military, law enforcement and first responders, so any time we can partner with veteran-based organizations to support their missions we’re all in,” UFC President and CEO Dana White said in a news release.

Howler Head and UFC will jointly support the campaign with promotion across UFC Pay-Per-View broadcasts and UFC, Howler Head, and Dana White digital and social channels, reaching more than 270 million followers worldwide.

“As a longstanding charitable partner of UFC, we are thrilled to align with Howler Head and serve as the beneficiary of this campaign, as it is an amazing opportunity to share our mission with fans around the world,” Alex Karalexis, Executive Director of Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors, said. “The funds raised from this campaign will go towards assisting veterans who were injured in combat with finding a place where they can truly call home.”

Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors (JAH4WW) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to build mortgage-free, fully accessible homes for US Veterans wounded in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. Each home is customized specifically to meet the Veteran’s individual needs, making a tangible difference in their daily lives. Since its inception, JAH4WW has completed 23 homes across the county with six homes currently under construction.

As a charitable partner of JAH4WW, UFC annually raises funds and awareness for programs funded by the organization and provides custom home gyms and physical therapy rooms for disabled veterans as part of their mortgage-free program.

The “Howler Head for Heroes” limited edition bottle will debut on June 28 at UFC X, the organization’s two-day, fully interactive fan experience, during the 12th Annual UFC International Fight Week. Following IFW, the bottle will be available for $29.99 on

This limited-time-only bottle is an online-only exclusive, once they are gone, they are gone. The first 400 consumers to purchase a bottle online will also receive a complimentary branded cocktail book.
