About New Liberty: At one time, more whiskey was produced in Pennsylvania than in Kentucky, and rye was the most popular whiskey in the United States. Rye whiskey is spicier, leaner, and more assertive than the rounder, sweeter bourbon or the lighter Canadian whisky. Rye’s taste inspired the creation of some of the most admired cocktails in mixology, such as the Manhattan and the Old Fashioned.

Touting their line-up of spirits as a “new take on timeless distilling techniques, [that] transcend the oft-ordinary taste we’ve all grown accustomed to [with mass-produced products],” we invite you to stop by on Thursday and taste the difference for yourself!
Known as the “Father of Bourbon” Elijah Craig was a man of many trades. A Baptist preacher, educator, road builder, and land speculator in 1800’s Kentucky, Elijah Craig was also a distiller of whiskey.
