An evolving line of craft spirits produced by the region’s first legal distillery since prohibition, Berkshire Mountain Distillers’ Craft Brewers Whiskey Project combines the flavors and essences of some of the best and well-known craft beers in the country. Each Craft Brewers Whiskey is blended to 86 proof using Berkshire Mountain Distillers’ proprietary historic spring water in Sheffield, Mass., and packaged in custom bottles with a brewer-designed label.
Aged at the distillery since 2015, the Craft Brewers Whiskey Project releases will be based on the beer used in each whiskey – released in the order in which they were distilled. Being a limited release, quantities of each whiskey will range from hundreds of bottles to hundreds of cases and will be sold in the BMD tasting room and to select stores and restaurants.
Berkshire Mountain Distillers’ popular Cask-Finished Bourbon Project, which took place in 2014 and involved brewers such as Samuel Adams, Ommegang and Terrapin, was only available in the state where the brewery was located. For the wider-reaching Craft Brewers Whiskey Project, each whiskey will be released in a small collection and made available in multiple states.
