On Saturday, June 12 Dry Fly will release a new batch of its 100-percent wheat whiskey. It’s always hard to grab a bottle before they’re gone, but I learned some good information from distiller Kent Fleischmann that will give you the leg up.
Twenty cases will be stocked in Washington liquor stores. You’re only allowed to buy one bottle at a time, and Seattle is receiving just seven cases. Three will go to the liquor store in University Village, four will go to the store at 7th and Bell.
The LCB has warned stores that they may have a line outside the door in the morning, and that they are not to hold bottles for people who call and request them.
Live in Everett? One case is also en route to the state-run emporium at 4933 Evergreen Way.
In other news, expect a new bottle design from Dry Fly, and look back here for information on the distillery’s first batch of bourbon-style whiskey, aged for three years in new American oak, to be released in the very near future.
