Lightning Strikes!

AMERICAN
REVOLUTION

John Baker fought in the American Revolution. To honor his service for helping create a new country, B. Bird has created a special Whiskey:

The American Revolution (1775-1783) arose from tensions between residents of 13 North American Colonies and The British Crown. The American Rebels waged a full-scale war for their independence. Because of those brave and daring patriots, today we have a "free" country. We honor John Baker and those patriots that fought in the American Revolution with a toast of B. Bird Whiskey.

The Whiskey Rebellion in Washington County (Pittsburgh), PA played a dramatic role in American History because it was the first challenge of the new American Government to levy and enforce taxes, which was levied to pay for the debt incurred by the new Federal Government during the American Revolution. The tax was very unpopular because it was on whiskey and whiskey was made by many farmers to monetize their corn production as well as often used as a form of currency. Can you imagine fighting in the American Revolution against un-fair taxation then the new Government turns around and slaps a tax on one of the few forms of money?! Tax records show that John Baker was a distiller in Washington County during the Whiskey Rebellion period.

Light Strikes Twice
Double Distilled and Double Good

WHISKEY
REBELLION

Many Distillers relocated from Washington County to Kentucky after the Whiskey Rebellion. Since Kentucky was more remote on the new frontier, it was harder to collect taxes. Kentucky became the fifteenth State in 1792. To commemorate Mr. Baker moving to this site in 1798, B. Bird produces Kentucky Statehood, which is a bourbon that reflects the drive, fortitude and determination to distill despite a Revolution, Rebellion and Revenuers.

Fierce, Young Bourbon
Aged for at Least 2 Years

These are young bourbons because during the Revolution, Rebellion and running from the revenuers, the distillers didn’t have time to age bourbon. Stay tuned to the aged B. Bird™ Bourbon in the future!

Hot Toddy

In the 1700’s life was hard!

Clearing the forested frontier and evading native war parties were dangerous and painful. Very few medicines existed. For example, aspirin was not commercially available until the late 1800s. Antibiotics were not invented until the 1900s. Alcoholic beverages like homemade Whiskey and Bourbon were often the only medicine handy to dull the pain and take the hard edge off of life.

A HOT TODDY was a common spirits remedy in the 1700s and well into the 1900s. Modern day research shows that a HOT TODDY is a decongestant because it vasodilates the blood vessels in the nose as well as acts as a pain suppressant.

A HOT TODDY is the suggested choice for a colds, flu or feeling blue.
