Sons of Liberty Beer & Spirits Co.’s Limited Edition Uprising American Single Malt Pedro Ximénez Barrel Finish was awarded Best in Show at the 2018 Whiskies of the World Awards held in Austin, Texas, in November. “This is a huge honor,” Mike Reppucci, Sons of Liberty Founder, said of the results. “We take a lot of pride in making unique, high-quality products and to receive such high praise is extremely rewarding.” Whiskies are judged on a 100-point basis with a concentration on aromatics, flavor and finish. The whiskey is a special edition of Sons of Liberty’s signature Single Malt, Uprising. Distilled from a stout beer and aged in new American Oak barrels, the team at Sons of Liberty then transfers the whiskey to a 130-gallon ex-Pedro Ximénez Sherry barrel. Pedro Ximénez is the sweetest in the Sherry family.
