    What about our friends at KBD?
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    Nice exposure for McKenzie
    I've been trying to locate the article on line to read. But, no luck so far. Do you know how I could access a copy of the article? Thanks,

    I read it via the Mental Floss app on my Android tablet.

    Good point, yes, KBD too, and a more substantial operation than the Pogue's. It's not entirely clear what they're doing with it, though. KBD/Willet tends to be less than transparent.

    Chuck, Is Whistle Pig still bottling its 100% rye in Vermont, or did that go by the way side when the major principals had a falling out? Thanks,

    I can't say for a fact where it was ever bottled nor where it is bottled now. If you know it was originally bottled in Vermont, you know more about it than I do.

    What I meant to ask: Will Whistle Pig continue to sell its 100% Canadian rye, now that the major principals had a falling out? Thanks.

    I have been told that, yes, it will continue.
