New 1762 Whiskey Sale
4:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Fort Ligonier will unveil and have available for purchase the new 1762 Whiskey by the award-winning Wigle Whiskey on Friday, September 18 from 4:00 – 6:00 PM.
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. The remaining bottles will be on sale Saturday 10:30 AM to 3:30 PM.
The cost is $50 per 375 ml. bottle or two for $90.
