Introducing Birdie Brown Plain Hooch, an unaged whiskey gracefully distilled with care in small batches from oats, wheat and barley just like Birdie used to make during Prohibition. Distilled in her homesteading state of Montana, our Plain Hooch honors not only Birdie, but all African Americans in distilled spirits history.
Proof 100 (ABV 50%)
THE UNSUNG LEGEND OF PROHIBITION
In the early 1900’s an African American woman from Missouri, Birdie Brown, homesteaded by Brickyard Creek in Montana along with only her beloved cat. While prohibition gripped the nation, Birdie gained quick notoriety for her home-distilled hooch made from homegrown grains. Her hooch was known for not only being safe, a concern of the era, but for its exceptionally smooth sipping.
Birdie was a strong, independent woman and one of the few African American female homesteaders in the country. She tragically passed in 1933, but her cabin and her legacy still stand today. Passerby even say every so often they catch a glimpse of a black cat perched in the parlor window. We are proud to share Birdie’s story of adventure, fortitude, and entrepreneurship which has until now resided in a forgotten place in distilled spirits history. We raise a glass to Birdie!
