    Corn Whiskeys on the East Coast?

    All,

    I'd like to acquire a bottle of Mellow Corn or Platte Valley, but have never seen either in a store. I live in Delaware. Is there any place in the mid-Atlantic region known to carry these? I often go as far south as Richmond, VA.

    Further afield, I'll be headed to Indiana later this month, driving through MD, WV, and OH along the way. I'll be in Chicago and the Red River Gorge area of KY in March/April.

    Thanks in advance,

    -Matt

    In Virginia, you have an option for corn whiskey that most others don't: Virginia Lightning.

    When I was in Virginia awhile back , I had good luck and met nice people.

    Thanks for the tip! I read your post. I'll be seeing a Richmondite friend in a few weeks. I think I'll instruct him to head to one or another of those ABC stores and bring me some goodies.

    WV used to sell Platte Valley corn whiskey in its stores!

    If I want to pick up some Mellow Corn, which I like, I do it in Kentucky. Pretty hard to find elsewhere.

    There were a couple of interesting articles in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution this Thursday about different mainstream "moonshines" and corn whiskies. They mixed up some cocktails, had an article on Junior Johnson, etc. I'll post the link below if anyone is interested in looking at them. Type in the link, then scroll down the page to the "FOOD & DRINK" section, and look for the 3 different articles.
