A triple glass ceiling shattering tipple.

Established with crowdfunding in 2015 by Pia Carusone and Rachel Gardner, Republic Restoratives in Washington D.C. has been disrupting the distilled Spirits world since its inception. It's a women-owned, politically engaged hub for cocktails, social events, and its own line of Spirits, that courageously challenge the status quo. Their motto: “Outspoken, Disruptive, American.” And it’s printed on every bottle’s label. Their message as well as their drinks are delivered with positive, unshakable vitality. True women of Spirit, in many ways.

MADAM is their latest liquid statement. The Whiskey was made to commemorate the inauguration of Kamala Harris, the nation's first African-American, South Asian-American female to serve as Vice President of the United States. Feeling that a triple glass ceiling shatterer like this deserves a worthy tipple, they designed a blend of 7-year-old Bourbon and 5-year-old Rye (mash bill: 58% rye, 37% corn, 5% malted barley) that was slow-smithed before being bottled at 92° proof (46% ABV) to produce what the creators at the distillery strive (and vote, and protest, and organize) for: a more perfect union.

The distillery collaborated with local artist Lex Marie to create a bottle design that would capture the importance, beauty, and power of the historic moment. The result is a Whiskey, a portrait, and a celebration of the outspoken and disruptive, of those who blaze new trails and who inspire us to resist and persist.

Tennessee Whiskey closely parallels Bourbon, but final filtering through sugar-maple charcoal (called the Lincoln County Process) is what some producers say differentiates them. Tennessee Whiskey’s finish is sweeter and smoother than Bourbon.
Moonshine Whiskey is distilled from a varied mix of corn and sugar and is aged in Mason jars and jugs for the length of time it takes the customers to get home.
Corn Whiskey is a commercial product that must contain at least 80% corn, be distilled at less than 80% ABV (160 proof), and, if wood-aged, may be aged in either used or new un-charred barrels.
is the fermentation process by which a percentage of a previous fermentation is added to a new batch as a "starter" to get the fermentation going and maintain a level of consistency from batch to batch. A sweet mash means that only fresh yeast is added to a new batch to start fermentation.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
An un-aged American Whisky is often called “white dog.”Sour Mash is the fermentation process by which a percentage of a previous fermentation is added to a new batch as a "starter" to get the fermentation going and maintain a level of consistency from batch to batch. A sweet mash means that only fresh yeast is added to a new batch to start fermentation.
