    Rittenhouse rye BIB

    I think most of us know that the Ritt BIB that's currently on the shelves is Brown-Forman juice in a Heaven Hill bottle, and that soon HH will start using their own juice. Well, I talked to a guy from HH, and if everything went according to plan, they bottled their last batch of B-F Ritt BIB this past week. If you're a curious guy like me, this is an excellent opportunity to see how long it takes for the new stuff to push the old stuff out of the pipeline.





    You know, I think it'd be nice if B-F bottled their rye with their own label, but I'm a whiskey lover, not a businessman.

    I can't make any promises as to the timeline, but a comparison will be done at such time as it is possible.

    Since there's nothing IN the pipeline [in my neck of the ocean], other than surfers, I guess we'll see what turns up next.

    I'm scared. But unless brown foreman stopped distilling rye a while back then there is still a ton of contract distilled juice laying around those rickhouses at HH

    I'm not worried, I doubt we're in for any surprises.

    I doubt there's any question on that point - HH says they'll be putting out their distilled product this year, so I'm sure they stopped buying from B-F years ago.

    That comforts me and bums me out at the same time.

    Several observations:

    I'm confident HH will put out a product as good or better than the BF iteration.

    Can't wait to A/B the old BF vs. new HH juice.

    I have plenty of BF juice in bunker.....but I may go buy another case, just because
