I have as much faith in the TBB acutally doing their job as I do the VA, IRS, and ICE.
Not gonna happen.
Where else can you get a job and not to perform in like forever? Well other than the Chicago Cubs
Mean Gene Green, first in the pool. Good job, Wade.
Don't mess with Texas.
Nothing so far from my rep, or from the co-chairs of the Congressional Bourbon Caucus, or from KDA, but I can say my letter has been respectfully received and distributed at DISCUS and they're looking into it.
Retailers probably don't help to clarify the situation much. Got an email ad for Goody Goody today, sale off all Texas-made bottles. You can be sure several of those aren't truly Texas-made.
Not sure, but should Rough Rider bourbon be included in this list?
Put another log on the fire, Indio Spirits-James Oliver Rye "produced & bottled by Indio Spirits, Portland, Oregon". One that Gary-darylld911 had posted about back in January http://www.straightbourbon.com/forum...ighlight=indio and made its way to Binny's.
Note that 5.65(e) also applies to this issue.
(e) Place of origin. The advertisement shall not represent that the distilled spirits were manufactured in or imported from a place or country other than that of their actual origin, or were produced or processed by one who was not in fact the actual producer or processor.
Unfortunately, the rules allow anyone who does anything, i.e., a bottler, to legally use the term 'produced by,' even though the consumer probably understands the meaning of 'produced by' differently.
