Last month we had a great time celebrating the launch of the 1816 Heritage Collection in true sporting fashion with a day of clay shooting and uplanding birding adventures at a beautiful plantation in Florida. While there we encountered the unexpected fine tastemaking from our friends at Berkshire Mountain Distillers that we want to spotlight here.
These New England artisans are doing something right. In the Berkshire Mountains not far from our birthplace of Ilion, New York, the makers of BMD are channeling something inspired and of the earth to create very fine, unique batch spirits. After a full day out in the field we returned to the lodge to enjoy a tasting of their Berkshire Bourbon and their limited release Sam Adams cask-finished bourbon whiskey – part of a special project they’ve initiated with select brewers around the country. The sipping was smooth, the field stories were flowing, and we toasted to quality craftsmanship, fine goods and great friends.
Note: Goes down easy with the Walker Wool Coat on a crisp fall evening.
