Shays' Rebellion American Whiskey
Shays' Rebellion // Massachusetts, USA
Shay's Rebellion American Whiskey was made in collaboration with Sam Adams Brewery. In 2012, Berkshire Mountain Distillers hatched the idea to triple distill a batch of Samuel Adams Cinder Bock. The resulting whiskey was then aged for 3.5 years in Sam Adams Utopias casks until the team at BMD felt it had reached perfection. The last battle of Shay's Rebellion took place just three miles from the distillery, and they wanted to create a whiskey that celebrated Massachusetts' spirit of independence. Less than 3,000 bottles of this whiskey were released nationally.
