WhistlePig’s Ode To The Whiskey Rebellion 

This initiative by WhistlePig constitutes a mini ‘Whiskey Rebellion’. The Whiskey Rebellion came about in the 1790s when the first tax was levied on distilled spirits in the US. The population of the Western Frontier, who were then living in a barter economy, weren’t best pleased with Alexander Hamilton’s new tax and decided to rebel. You can read a complete, in-depth history of The Whiskey Rebellion here.
