It all started on October 2, 1863 Maj. Gen. Joseph Wheeler and his men surprised a train of 800 mule-drawn wagons at Anderson’s Cross Roads. His troops overwhelmed the guards and began carrying out their orders to “kill the mules and burn the wagons”. Soon, Whiskey was discovered on the wagons and instead, his men pillaged the wagons and enjoyed some of the newly discovered bounty!
At Wheeler’s Raid Distillery, it is not about the North or South. We simply see Whiskey as the great neutralizer.
Please enjoy it responsibly over a cube or neat, just like the soldiers would!
