Good things come in small packages...
 
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, 100% Wheat Whiskey and their most recent addition: Bourbon 101. Not bad for a couple of corporate marketing refugees who combine forces to become the first licensed distillers in Washington since Prohibition.
 
Their Bourbon was the first legal Bourbon ever made in the state of Washington! Distilled through twin, bespoke 450-liter Christian Carl copper-pot stills straight from Goppingen, Germany, Dry Fly Bourbon is made from a locally sourced mash of 60% corn (grown by a local Hutterian Settlement), and 20% wheat. Aged in 53-gallon barrels, this 4YO’s distinctively spicy profile earned it a Gold medal, 91 points, at the 2017 World Spirits Awards.
 
Smartass Corner:
The twin, bespoke 450-liter Christian Carl copper-pot stills traveled over seven thousand miles from Goppingen, Germany, to Dry Fly Distillery's home in Spokane, Washington.

Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.

Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
