Bower Hill Reserve Rye

Bower Hill Reserve Rye....$39.99
Bower Hill Bourbon commemorates the "Battle of Bower Hill" which was the first bloodshed of the Whiskey Rebellion in 1794.  The Mingo Creek militiamen numbering nearly six hundred surrounded federal tax inspector General Jon Neville's fortified home, Bower Hill.  The battle took the lives of two rebel leaders, Oliver Miller and Major James McFarlane, a veteran of the Revolutionary war, as well as a few U.S. Solders defending the Bower Hill home.  Upon completion of the two day batle, the home was razed by fire.
