Saint Liberty Whiskey celebrates the untold stories of pioneering Prohibition-era women bootleggers from across the country.
The brand’s first expression is Bertie’s Bear Gulch Bourbon Whiskey honoring African American homesteader Bertie “Birdie” Brown known for making the “best moonshine in the country.”
Craft whiskies from distilleries across the country are paired with each woman bootlegger to highlight and honor their stories. Each whiskey is also proofed and bottled in the state where each woman resided, using the same water source they would have used 100 years ago!
Bertie is followed by Josephine’s Flat Head River Rye and Mary’s Four Grain Bourbon.
