1762 Whiskey Sale

10:00 am - 5:00 pm

First whiskey sale of the year! A limited quantity of the 1762 Whiskey made expressly for Fort Ligonier by the award-winning Wigle Whiskey will be on sale on this day only!

The cost is $50 (plus tax) per 375 ml. bottle or two for $90 (plus tax).

The Archibald Blane painting of Fort Ligonier that hangs in the museum’s History Gallery inspired the new whiskey. Blane served as an ensign in the 60th Royal American Regiment during the 1758 Forbes Campaign, during which Fort Ligonier was constructed. He was promoted to lieutenant in 1759. An artist and an officer, Blane painted the watercolor of Fort Ligonier in 1762 when he was in command of the frontier outpost.
