Uncle Flaviar loves local, unique, craft distillers, and Dry Fly out of Spokane, Washington, is after his heart. Why? Because these guys are what a craft distiller is supposed to be. Where some small shops outsource everything, reducing their business model to that of repackaging and marketing operations, Dry Fly is anti-that. They control every aspect of the process; from sourcing 99% local ingredients from other local craft producers, to hand making everything else in their shop. They even hand-bottle all of their products on-site. And most importantly, they care about each and every step in the process and do have to answer to anyone except their own consciences.
Dry Fly Distillers makes their signature Vodka and Gin, and have added a 100% Wheat Whiskey and a new Bourbon. Not bad for a couple of corporate marketing refugees who combine forces to become the first licensed distillers in Washington since prohibition.
All Gin is infused with the somewhat mysterious word “botanicals.” With Gin, these botanicals always start with juniper berries. But Gin is a delicate recipe. And the best chefs tweak and fiddle with even the most classic dishes to make it their own. Dry Fly Gin is a very special Gin recipe indeed.
Balanced, surprising, and unique. In addition to the juniper, Dry Fly Gin includes coriander and lavender—both fairly common. But unique to this excellent wheat-based Gin is the addition of dried Fuji apples, mint, and hops to the infusing chamber. WOW … this Gin tastes unlike any other. It is a truly unique interpretation from a master hand that lends itself wonderfully to both sweet cocktails and savory ones.
“Forget everything you think you know about Gin and start all over again!”
