Fortunato’s Fate Rye Whiskey
A Rye Whiskey Aged in Sherry Casks
Historically, sherry was the last drink of the night…in one case literally.
In “The Cask of Amontillado” the unfortunate Fortunato is buried alive in a tomb of sherry barrels. Despite his fate, Fortunato means “good fortune.”
New Liberty pays homage to Edgar Allan Poe’s macabre with this beautiful aged spirit made with 100% Malted Rye from right here in Pennsylvania and traditionally floor malted by yours truly! Aged in new American oak, and finished (like the late Fortunato) in Spanish Sherry Casks, this is the third aged spirit made with PA Craft Malt from New Liberty Distillery.
