    Hello from Seattle

    Live in Seattle, work all over Western WA., hoping to learn more about Bourbons we don't represent and what to look out for as I dont get to taste as often. As many in WA, enjoy Canon, Zig Zag, Kickn' Boot, Liberty, Knee High, and Diller Room in Seattle. Look forward to reading thru some past threads and learning a bit more.

    Bartender for 5 years, and then ITB since.

    Cheers, Kris

    Welcome. There's plenty on the search function. To say that lots of bourbons have been discussed, would be under an understatement.

    Welcome Kris. I live in Seattle as well. Not in the business but curious to learn who you represent and I look forward to your contributions as well.

    Work for YMCO, so BT, HH, BF, Infinium all on the list of suppliers with Bourbon. Know them well, but want to see what else is out there, can't sell it all.

    Maybe you can get some more Weller and Bowman into bars. I seem to be more interested in trying out the craft/small distillery stuff than most people I encounter who are into bourbon so if you're interested in my thoughts on any of that PM me.

    Hello from Seattle

    Very Old Barton BIB (or any of them) seem very difficult to find ever since the state got out of the liquor store business - would love to see better prices of course but hopefully getting some more distributors carrying the same product in the state will help that.

    Re: Hello from Seattle

    Getting rid of the 20% State liquor tax will help that, which becomes 30% with sales tax. Wasn't a good bill for consumers which is why we fought it.

    Wholesalers represent a supplier, two wholesalers won't sell the same product in WA, it's franchised.
