Willie’s Devil’s Brigade Whiskey 750 ml
42% ABV | 84 Proof | Ennis, Montana
"Born in a small town of 900 residents in southwestern Montana, Willie’s Distillery was established in 2010 with a simple goal in mind: create brands and products that embody the independent spirit and authenticity of the American West while supporting its local economy and residents. Founders Willie and Robin Blazer showcase local ingredients, regional flavor, and even friends and neighbors in their hometown to proudly produce world-class spirits. Willie, originally hailing from Appalachian moonshine country in western North Carolina, is a veteran of the United States Armed Forces and U.S. Forest Service, serving as an Army Ranger, Special Forces Medic, Hotshot Wildland Firefighter and Smokejumper. Robin, raised on a grain farm in southwest Montana, brings a strong business development and marketing background along with her Montana roots. Currently acting as the President of Willie’s Distillery and the Montana Distiller’s Guild, Robin’s prominent positions echo Montana’s prohibition-era history of a female-driven spirits industry. We use a copper pot still made specially for us by Bavarian Holstein Stills from Germany. At Willie’s Distillery, we mill, mash, ferment and distill corn, barley and oats on site, as well as producing spirits from ingredients like molasses, cream and Canadian whisky. Our spirits are distilled in our custom Bavarian Holstein still, crafted by a family-owned company that has been building world-class spirits stills since 1958. Our staff includes veterans of multiple branches of the United States Armed Forces acting in positions ranging from Production to Sales and Management. After nearly a decade, Willie’s Distillery has grown to become Montana’s premier destination distillery and produces several of the state’s best selling Montana-made brands. As in the early days of the distillery, we still produce, bottle, label, cork and pack all of our spirits by hand. Willie’s Distillery remains independently owned and operated."
Devil’s Brigade Whiskey was made in honor of the First Special Service Force which was formed in 1942 during WWII at Fort Harrison, Montana.
This Whiskey is a blend of American Bourbon and Canadian Whisky, just like the ratio of men assigned to the Unit. This is Willie's Distillery's way of honoring the Bravery and Valor of this Joint American-Canadian Commando Unit who fought with distinction. The Legacy continues with current American and Canadian Special Operations Forces who trace their lineage and heritage to the “Forcemen.”
A portion of each sale is donated to the Montana Special Forces Association “Devil’s Brigade Chapter” which is a Non-Profit Veterans Service Organization based in Montana. SFA28.org
It is made with 60% Bourbon, 40% Canadian. This matches the original fighting unit that had 60% Americans and 40% Canadians.
