Produced by the award-winning Pittsburgh-based Wigle Whiskey, the beautifully labeled bottles were inspired by a stunning stained glass window that depicts General John Forbes at the entrance to the Fort Ligonier Center for History Education. The window was created by Mandy Sirofchuck of Ligonier’s Main Exhibit Gallery.
Rum was an essential ration for the troops who built the Forbes Road. On July 19, 1758, James Sinclair wrote to Colonel Henry Bouquet, “We have this day sent off for Rays Town Eighteen Waggons, Seven which are loaded with Powder, Eight with Rum, two with Eight Tents & tent Poles compleat to be sent for Colonel Washington & Colonel Byrds Regim to Fort Cumberland.”
Proceeds from rum sales benefit Fort Ligonier’s educational programming and preservation projects.
