Today I was at a liquor store in the North End of Boston that normally carries a substantial stock of Old Fitz 1849 - it is my only source for it in the area. But this time there was a big, empty space where the Old Fitz usually is - I picked up the last bottle they had. The manager told me that he thought it would be "very difficult" to get any more, according to their distributor. Anyone know if it has been discontinued or something?
I talked to one of the guys from Heaven Hill at WhiskyFest 2004 in NYC and was told that Old Fitz 1849 was in no danger of being discontinued. Has this changed? Or is it just a distribution problem in Boston?
