    Congrat's to John Hall. Glad he's getting what he wants. I wonder if some of the brands that made the reputation will (ever?) be available down here in Michigan. The little we get is good; but the exceptional stuff doesn't show up.

    I hope this means better distribution for Forty Creek products. We only get the regular Forty Creek here.

    For those hoping for positive news coming out of Forty Creek post June 2nd, just remember all the positive things out of Wild Turkey since Campari has owned them.

    I think only one thing may be a given: more distribution outside Canada. On the other hand, more distribution means stocks get stretched, and that means .................. (you fill-in the blank)

    Re: John Hall Cashes Out-In

    Glad for the owners to have done well from the business, however IMO Forty Creek's whiskeys, while important to push the envelope of the Canadian norm, did not (or so far) create a new template, did not produce something to rival a good bourbon or straight rye, or single malt. The products largely retain a Canadian approach but with more oomph; perhaps that very characteristic is what attracted the buyer.
