NARRAGANSETT BEER & SONS OF LIBERTY INTRODUCE  LOVECRAFT HOP FLAVORED WHISKEY

Narragansett Beer and Sons of Liberty Spirits Company today announce the upcoming release of Lovecraft Hop Flavored Whiskey, a limited-edition whiskey distilled from Narragansett’s I Am Providence Imperial Red Ale. Part of Narragansett’s Lovecraft Series, I Am Providence provides an exciting base for an alluringly complex spirit.

Aged in 10-gallon newly charred American Oak barrels, the whiskey presents a floral nose and mild sweetness upfront followed by rich nutty caramel and subtle vanilla flavors. With only 1,400 bottles produced, the 43% ABV whiskey will be available for purchase from select retail locations throughout Rhode Island and the Sons of Liberty tasting room in South Kingstown starting on December 1.  

“For nearly three years, we’ve worked with local artists and brewers to present award-winning beers inspired by short stories from Providence native H.P. Lovecraft,” says Mark Hellendrung, President of Narragansett Beer. “Sons of Liberty is a local, award-winning distiller, and it’s a real honor to work with Mike and his team to transform a great beer into a unique whiskey. I Am Providence Imperial Red Ale, released in February 2016, was one of our most popular Lovecraft beers and people who enjoyed it will be interested in how its bold, hoppy flavors translate into whiskey.”

Since 2011, Sons of Liberty has crafted its whiskies with a beer-into-spirit methodology, producing a full line of award-winning whiskies from distinctly flavorful beers. With an innovative approach, Sons of Liberty continues to redefine American spirits by experimenting with beer bases, mash bills, and local partnerships.

We have loved doing business in Rhode Island and a great part of that is due to all of the other local businesses here,” says Sons of Liberty founder Mike Reppucci. “It’s been awesome working with the Narragansett team and linking up with such a historic brand. We’re psyched for this release. The whiskey is excellent and we can’t wait to share it!”

To celebrate the release, ’Gansett and Sons of Liberty will host an official Lovecraft Hop Flavored Whiskey launch party on December 1 from 5-10 pm at the Sons of Liberty tasting room located at 1425 Kingston Road in South Kingstown. In addition to the first samples of the whiskey, the party will include Lovecraftian-inspired cocktails, seasonal Narragansett Beer offerings, mouthwatering pizza from Jeff’s Wood Fired Pizza and live music by Rhode Island-based band James & the Giants.
