Berkshire Mountain Shays' Rebellion American Whiskey
Add to Cart
Shays’ Rebellion American whiskey maintains the smokiness and malt character of the Cinder Bock that it was made from but finishes with port and dried fruit notes from the Utopias casks that it was aged in, resulting in a mature, complicated and delicious whiskey.
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.
