The craft whiskey move­ment takes root in New Eng­land

Where Boston - - WHERE NOW -

IT’S BEEN A WHIRL­WIND year for Sons of Lib­erty Spir­its, re­cently named the Amer­i­can Craft Pro­ducer of the Year by Whisky mag­a­zine. One of its out­stand­ing of­fer­ings, Up­ris­ing—an Amer­i­can sin­gle malt—is a must-have for the true spirit lover. Even if you’re no whiskey ex­pert, it comes as no sur­prise to learn that Up­ris­ing is made from the darker malted bar­leys of­ten associated with stout beers: The end re­sult com­bines notes of vanilla, caramel and cof­fee. While you can al­ways pick up a bot­tle ‘to go’ in its home state of Rhode Is­land (as well as Con­necti­cut and Mas­sachusetts), a road trip to its South Kingstown dis­tillery, Thurs­day through Sun­day, is a wor­thy de­ci­sion. There are over 60 dis­til­leries spread across New Eng­land, and over 1,400 na­tion­ally, so it’s great to have one of the very best within driv­ing dis­tance.
