Berkshire Mountain Distillers Presents The Craft Brewers Whiskey Project

SHEFFIELD, Mass., Dec. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Berkshire Mountain Distillers is proud to announce its newest endeavor, the Craft Brewers Whiskey Project, a project for which BMD will be distilling a multitude of different beers from a select group of craft brewers. The resulting whiskey, bound to be momentous, will then be aged at the distillery for an undetermined amount of time before it is released. Unlike BMD’s wildly popular Cask Finished Bourbon project that involved brewers such as Samuel Adams, Ommegang, Terrapin and Founders – where the cask finished bourbon was only available in the state of the brewery from whence the cask hailed – the whiskey from the Craft Brewers Whiskey Project will be available in multiple states. Release date – When it is ready!
