This Rhode Island Whiskey was just named the best Best Flavored Whiskey in America at the 2017 World Whiskies Awards by Whisky Magazine.
Sons of Liberty Gala Apple is an expansion of Sons of Liberty Beer & Spirits Co.’s seasonal whiskey lineup. They used more than 9,000 gala apples from Blue Hills Orchard of Wallingford, Connecticut and Drazen Orchards of Cheshire, Connecticut to make a sauce shaped mash at New England Cider Co. That mash, called pumice, was then added to a barrel-aged whiskey made for this release.
The process worked and Sons of Liberty’s desire to create seasonal whiskeys just as beer brewers create seasonal beers has brought the company fame and fortune. Not only was Gala Apple Whiskey named the Best Flavored Whiskey in America at the 2017 World Whiskies Awards held by Whisky Magazine, but the whole company was named American Craft Producer of the Year.
