South Kingstown’s Sons of Liberty Craft Distillery launched its 2015 release of Pumpkin Spice Flavored Whiskey; awarded the title of “World’s Best Flavored Whiskey” at Whisky Magazine’s 2014 World Whiskies. The Rhode Island distillery continues the first-ever seasonal line of whiskies, which will be available at retailers and bars throughout Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut this September.
The whiskey uses 30,000 lbs. of Rhode Island-grown pumpkins from Carpenter’s Farm. The Sons of Liberty staff, along with many volunteers throughout New England, cut, cored, roasted and pressed the load of pumpkins to extract hundreds of gallons of fresh pumpkin juice, which was blended with a barrel-aged whiskey.
