Wherein we hear the story of German immigrant Melchior J. Miller (Melky) and his distillery in Accident, MD. How whiskey triumphed over rum and applejack in Colonial Days, leading eventually to a domestic tax on it that caused a "Whiskey Rebellion." Melky's wonderful whiskey is being commemorated now with a libation named after him, out of the New Liberty Distillery in Philadelphia. Check out both the original ballad and the brew!
