Even a whiskey shortage can’t keep Pumpkin Spice Whiskey from shipping up to Boston for the second time. The first-ever, seasonal line of whiskies is making its return to the Hub this fall with Sons of Liberty’s 2014 Pumpkin Spice release – hitting shelves in Massachusetts and Rhode Island this month.
And just like last year, the 2014 release will also feature a “true pumpkin flavor” with traditional autumn spices such as clove, allspice, vanilla, cinnamon and sweet orange to create a smooth and aromatic pumpkin spice profile, notes a release.
This year’s Pumpkin Spice Whiskey is made from 30,000 lbs of Rhode Island grown pumpkins, which have been roasted and pressed to produce hundreds of gallons of fresh pumpkin juice. The juice was then blended with an American Single Malt Whiskey, according to an official source.
And trust me, it’s good.
But don’t take it from me. The Sons of Liberty Pumpkin Spice Whiskey was recently rated “World’s Best Flavored Whiskey” at Whisky Magazine’s 2014 World Whiskies Awards in London. This meant that the Rhode Island-based Sons of Liberty was also the first U.S. craft distillery to take home a “World’s Best” award.
We’ll drink to that – and to the seasonal whiskey’s glorious return this fall.
