Woodinville Bourbon Review By Spokane Whiskey Club

Woodinville Bourbon Review The craft distilling industry is succeeding on a few levels. The most important of which is innovation, ever rare in the crowded marketplace.

Dry Fly Distillery has been releasing their 100% Washington Wheat whiskey for about four years now.

Classy Tenderloin: Swig Bar in San Francisco

While visiting down in California for business I decided to take a look at the local San Francisco bar scene. The day we arrived right across the street there was a bar called Swig Swig. It was kind of plain on the out side, looked a little out dated, and truly there was nothing about […]

Spokane Whisky Club: Dry Fly Port Barrel Finish Wheat Whiskey

Whiskey has a long tradition with flavoring. Specifically, infusing wine flavoring by “finishing” whiskey in a previously used wine barrel adds a nice sweetness.

It’s always fun to see a craft distillery, relatively new on the scene, tackle something other than Vodka or Gin, or even some base level whiskey, and decide to go for that great old chestnut known as American Bourbon.

Spokane Whisky Club: Dry Fly Barrel Reserve Gin

It has been said, somewhere, maybe at least once by no one in particular, “I’d rather have a bad scotch than a good gin.” We personally would rather just order a good scotch and a good gin, but some people I guess are just too particular. Perhaps with this customer in mind, Dry Fly Distilling […]
