In 1940, a 34 year-old master electrician named Nat Kidder labored aboard the battleships at Pearl Harbor, part of the massive efforts to ready them for the coming war.
By night, he distilled clean vodka for the young sailors in his charge who had begun drinking the Navy's industrial-use alcohol, nicknamed, "Torpedo Juice".
Enamored with distilling, Nat soon turned to whiskey and each year improved his process, marking bottles with Navy stencils –
December 5, 1941 Nat and his pregnant wife set sail for California, narrowly avoiding the Japanese attack. There, he continued searching for his perfect blend –
42, 43, 44....
Finally when he tasted the ‘49, Nat knew he had created something truly special.
