Episode Info

Episode Info:

Wherein we hear the story of German immigrant Melchior J. Miller (Melky) and his distillery in Accident, MD. How whiskey triumphed over rum and applejack in Colonial Days, leading eventually to a domestic tax on it that caused a "Whiskey Rebellion." And most importantly for us today, how Maryland's special brand of rye whiskey is making a comeback, including a re-creation of a brew named after Melky Miller, now produced out of Philadelphia by the New Liberty Distillery. We conclude with an original ditty, "The Ballad of Melky Miller," soon to be premiered at one of the Old Time Music Jams in New Germany State Park. Check out both the ballad and the brew via this episode on Itunes etc., and at . . .oh, and Bottoms Up!
