Victor George Spirits released its new bourbon Fort Mosé 1738 nationwide. Due to overwhelming demand, the inaugural edition will first be available online and to select retailers throughout the United States utilizing its network of distributors with Republic National Distributing Company being its largest.
Fort Mose Bourbon is named after the Florida town, Fort Mose which was established in 1738 just two miles north of St Augustine, Florida. This became the first settlement and town in which Black people could live free.
Known for making high-quality spirits beginning with the nationally distributed Victor George Vodka, African American spirits maker Victor G Harvey has expanded his portfolio of brands. Having acquired majority interest in Palm Beach Distillery (PBD), Florida’s first female-owned distillery in late 2021, Harvey alongside master distiller and Founder of PBD, Summer Piep saw this as an opportunity to release Harvey’s next line of spirits. Fort Mose’ is produced at Palm Beach Distillery located in West Palm Beach, Florida.
In November of 2021, Harvey was awarded $2.45 million dollars by the Fort Lauderdale Community Redevelopment Agency to build Fort Lauderdale’s first Black-owned distillery. Project plans have been expanded to an 18,000 square foot building housing a distillery, restaurant, cigar lounge, and rooftop patio and lounge. The expected groundbreaking is in the summer of 2022.
Fort Mose’ 1738 is a four-year-aged bourbon with a unique mash combining corn, rye and malted barley delivering a refined exceptionally smooth taste.
