    Micro / Craft Distilleries

    Chuck had mentioned this place awhile back and that thread is now locked. This does look interesting. I'm really enjoying what these Micro Distilleries have to offer so far. For the most part anyway.

    Woodstone Creek.

    "Don started his distillation enterprise making 5-grain bourbon and single malt whisky which will age while other products make their debut. Other planned products include blended whisky, dark rum, gin and a distilled beer specialty product. The vodka began distribution to Cincinnati state stores this past October. The pair needed the vodka to produce income because the bourbon and whisky may take several more years to mature. Woodstone's website shows the labels of the other spirits: http://www.woodstonecreek.com."

    Do you have any reason to believe this is being sold anywhere? It was my understanding that it is not.

    Re: Micro / Craft Distilleries

    I don't know if it is. I'd love to try it though. I've tried a few different Micro Distillery products and some have been good, some have been bad. Hopefully, these will be good.

    I'll email the guy and see what he says about distribution.

    Yeah...nothing but vodka at this time. Oh well. Here's his response.

    "Mark,

    Woodstone Creek Vodka, is our only spirit currently on the market and is sold in Kentucky (Try The Party Source in Newport, KY thepartysource.com) and Ohio. It just won a Silver Medal with 88 points "Highly Recommended" in The Beverage Testing Institue's 2007 International Rieview of Spirits. I am proud to say that we were ranked higher than some Vodka's from Russia & Poland.

    We also have ports containg our distilled grape spirits for sale from our
    tasting room.

    Thank you for your interest in our products.

    Best regards,


    Donald R Outterson, Master Distiller"

    Re: Micro / Craft Distilleries

    Very interesting...might have to order one of these for the hell of it...

    "Jim Nielsen at Jim's Liquors also handles the Monterey Rye Spirits kit for C&C Shine. It is the equivalent of 10 bottles of rye whiskey that the buyer pours into the dark charred white oak, made-in-Arkansas-barrel that comes with the kit. Just let it sit for six months while it develops the color and complexities of flavors desired."

    And ordering info here...

    The following sentences just fill me with confidence in the quality of this California product:

    "To make the recipe authentic, the men use Kentucky water that has been duplicated by a Monterey County Lab. To that, corn, yeast and sugar is added for the proper fermentation."

    Re: Micro / Craft Distilleries

    On the other board it was stated today that a tasting of the new Woodstone Creek 5 grain bourbon occurred last Thursday in Covington, I would think at Party Source.

    This bourbon, long in development, is produced from a microdistillery in Cincinnati that was an outgrowth of a winery.

    According to the other board, it is between 4-8 years old and was distilled and barreled at about 107 proof. For bottling it will be 86 proof according to the colorful label, Woodstone Creek Straight Bourbon Whiskey. (See Woodstone Creek website for a picture).

    I don't know if the product is available at Party Source at this time, people in Kentucky near to the Covington outlet might check on availability.

    I'd be interested in taste notes if anyone can find some.

    Kudos to the distiller for perservering and bringing out (now or soon I would think) a craft pot-distilled bourbon.

    Gary
