    Re: Willett Rye Origin

    Is the Willet Rye available to purchase somewhere? If so, what is the approximate cost?? I was also wondering what I could expect to pay for a Rittenhouse 21, I'm sure Binny's could get one for me.

    Re: Willett Rye Origin

    You might wantto contact Doug Philips (DougDog) as to where to get some of the Willett's. It will be expensive. LeNell has stated that all the Red Hook Rye has all been sold. I paid aout 130 US for the Rittenhouse.

    As posted previously...

    This Rye can be purchased by Calling Ed at Ledger's Liquors in Berkeley, 510-540-9243. Ed cannot ship so you will need to rely on someone local to help you out. He is closed on Sunday and Monday.

    (Ed has mentioned the stock is just about gone, best call sooner than later...)

    Want it, See it, Buy it, Got it!

    Things are gaining momentum to do another barrel of Rye. The barrel under consideration is one that was sampled last April. Drew is gathering another sample to confirm that things are still as good inside that barrel as they were before. In the meantime, I’m gathering souls…with enough souls on a list; I’ll then be gathering money…same as before.

    Only difference this time is that there will only be 12 bottle lots…if you want fewer than 12 bottles, join forces with your buddies here on the forum, or wherever, and form your own “mini group” for a case purchase.

    The total for each bottle, including ca sales tax is $68.15, a bit higher than last time, but still the same good whiskey. The barrel is yielding two cases less than last time and the retailer wants more for his operation, so there is generally less to go around…first come first serve until it is completely pre-sold.

    If your order is planned to be shipped, you will be charged additional for the cost of the 12pack styrofoam container and box, plus UPS ground fees, continental US destinations only. (Sorry, no more 1 or 2 bottle deals) No insurance can be provided. Shipping will be prepaid this time...there is still one that has not paid shipping from last time...

    Please....make all replys on email...do not post here or in PM's...

    I went to your profile and it won't let me email you. Is there something I'm missing?

    goin' forward...

    We are close enough to consider the barrel sold. So we are going forward, once decided after tasting, Drew will bottle quickly and we should have this one much shorter time frame than the last. Be prepared for prompt payment when the time comes...I'll keep you informed.

    One 12 pack remains...FYI...hurry up you slackers! heeheee haha!

    Sample is enroute, Neal and I will taste, report back and go from there...

    Re: barrel 2

    Doug -

    Did you happen to send replies to everyone who contacted you? Apologies for making a nuisance of myself, but I have no idea if my e-mails got through or not.

    Cheers,
    Dave
