I'm doing a little research ... What I've been told so far is that there was apparently a distillery started in Bedford County, PA about 1872 ... making pure rye whiskey ... I think it was either named Hughes Brothers or Bedford Brothers Distillery. I also think it made whiskey until prohibition, and then shut its doors forever.
I would guess that they made Monongahela Rye ... but not sure ... and I have no idea what brands were made there.
Any help would be appreciated.
