• Dry Fly 4 YR. Straight Bourbon 101

This Washington wheated bourbon has aromas of maple syrup, fruitcake, fresh wheat, and a shrubery edge. The palate is rich with toffee, peanut skin and dark coffee. D&M Tasting Notes

Dry Fly Bourbon 101 was the first legal bourbon ever made in the state of Washington! It features a 55% corn (grown by our local Hutterian Settlement) and 45% triticale mash bill. This is the first Bourbon we’ve ever seen with this mashbill. Aged in 53-gallon barrels for a minimum of 4 years, it has strong corn forward notes balanced nicely with the light spice of the Triticale. At 101 proof it is dangerously sippable! Distillery Notes

The kernel that would become the distillery began during a fly fishing trip, when two buddies tired of the corporate rat race bantered around the idea of trying this new ‘craft distilling thing.’ Kent Fleischmann and Don Poffenroth were those two friends and both had a background in the industrial food business. Being savvy to the ways of scale and how large business worked, they decided to take a different path for their next life chapter. They leaned on Kris Arvid Berglund PhD, a Michigan State Professor of Craft Distilling in East Lansing, Michigan for distilling knowledge; and for distillery layout contracted a family firm in Germany that has been building distilleries since the late 1800s. Not wanting to be beholden to outside investors they borrowed from themselves, or rather their retirement accounts. (This did cause Don’s wife to ask if he was high when he first proposed this.) They were innovators in the craft distilling space with ‘bottling parties’ and a distilling school. Oola, Big Bottom, Smooth Ambler, Green Hat, and dozen of other distilleries have passed through the school over the years. They source the grain from Eastern Washington state, where they are located.
