This is my first post to the forums!
I didn't see any reference to this anywhere else, but I just thought that I should let anyone who doesn't know that they're going to be selling the first bottles of Rye made out of the reconstructed Washington Gristmill/Distillery on July 1 at 12:00 noon. They're having a free tasting. I know I'm going. A perfect extended lunch trip away from the office.
I'm not expecting the Van Winkle 13 year quality (I think it's only going to be maybe 3 years old?), but it should be a lot of fun to check out and taste what they have wrought!
FAIR WARNING: you may have to listen to a guy wearing knickers and a powdered wig if you show up...
