INSURRECTION

A 3 Grain Whiskey

Insurrection, a 3 grain bourbon whiskey honors a spirited tradition born during the era of Prohibition that continues to echo through the ages.

Characterized by its small-batch production and carefully guarded recipes, this clandestine elixir upheld the Southern tradition of whiskey-making while thumbing its nose at the temperance movement of the time. Today, this legacy of defiance and craftsmanship lives on in Insurrection, preserving the rich history of the Pee Dee region’s contribution to the world of whiskey-making during one of America’s most notorious eras.
