Sons of Liberty Spirits Company
True to its name, Sons of Liberty Spirits Company began with a revolutionary thought. While observing the proliferation of microbrews and seasonal craft beers, the company's founders wondered why the same model of constant innovation had yet to translate to the world of whiskey distilling. With a horizon-chasing attitude, they set out to fill that void—and haven't looked back since. Rather than deriving flavors from squeezing out every bar rag in Rhode Island, their small-batch, single-malt whiskeys draw inspiration directly from celebrated beers. Double-distilled from darker strains of pure malted barley and aged in charred and toasted oak, Uprising captures the complex, aromatic punch of a stout beer; Battle Cry blends rye and honey malt for a finish that resembles a sweet, fruity Belgian ale. And like many breweries, Sons of Liberty concocts a seasonal pumpkin-spice variety reaped from Rhode Island orchards.
Though driven by a novel concept, Sons of Liberty quickly established itself in the whiskey community, garnering acclaim from publications such as Maxim, Paste Magazine, Boston.com, and Whisky Magazine, which holds annual World Whiskies Awards. In the meantime, its trophy collection has continued to swell, as the distillery has captured awards from the American Distilling Institute, the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, the World Whiskies Awards, and recently having their hop-flavored whiskey voted Best in North America by Whisky Magazine.
