The Sons of Liberty continue to lead the American craft whiskey revolution and is proud to announce the launch of its highly anticipated 2015 release (Batch #4) of Pumpkin Spice Flavored Whiskey; rated “World’s Best Flavored Whiskey” at Whisky Magazine’s 2014 World Whiskies Awards.
Just one year removed from becoming the first U.S. craft distillery to take home a “World’s Best” honor at Whisky Magazine’s World Whiskies Awards, the Rhode Island craft distillery is proud to continue the first-ever seasonal line of whiskies with their 2015 Pumpkin Spice release, which will be available at retailers and bars throughout Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut this September.
“We are extremely proud of the 2015 Pumpkin Spice release,” said Sons of Liberty Owner, Mike Reppucci. “Now in its fourth year of production, we feel we’re putting a more flavorful and enjoyable product on the shelves every fall.”
The 2015 release of Pumpkin Spice Flavored Whiskey will make use of 30,000 lbs. of Rhode Island-grown pumpkins from Carpenter’s Farm. The Sons of Liberty, along with many loyal volunteers throughout New England cut, cored, roasted and pressed the load of pumpkins in pursuit of hundreds of gallons of fresh pumpkin juice, which was blended with a barrel-aged whiskey.
Exuding an authentic pumpkin flavor lacking the sugary, saccharin taste common to flavored spirits, this barrel-aged whiskey (Batch #4) masterfully complements the roasted, native harvest with traditional autumn spices - clove, allspice, vanilla, cinnamon and sweet orange peel. This combination creates a smooth and aromatic pumpkin spice profile that truly captures the essence of Fall in New England and can be enjoyed neat or in a fall seasonal cocktail.
“For us, the effort that goes into creating the whiskey encapsulates everything for which our distillery stands,” said Reppucci. “Accolades aside, this seasonal whiskey is literally made from the many hands of those who support what we do. We are honored and appreciative to put out a product that so many dedicated volunteers joined together to help create.”
The Rhode Island-based distillery recently announced its arrival to the Connecticut market. Sons of Liberty will be distributing its full line of single malt craft whiskies, seasonal whiskies (including its vaunted Pumpkin Spice) and the first-of-its-kind True Born gin to Connecticut suppliers on and off premise effective immediately.
