No, when we started, poitin was one of the white products we could make and sell, but marketing an unknown white whisky was only modestly successful. At the same time we were selling it white, we were also stashing it away in widemouth carboys with cleaned, machined, and toasted bourbon barrel staves.

It finally came ready.

I don't understand why, either, Bushman. I don't think we smell bad, and in fact yesterday we smelled great. There were some bad jokes based on "here, smell my finger". Just let us know a day or two in advance.

Overhead the albatross
Hangs motionless upon the air
And deep beneath the rolling waves
In labyrinths of coral caves
An echo of a distant time
Comes willowing across the sand
And everything is green and submarine

When I am done using the oak that is exactly how I re-use it.

Pa, I honestly don't know. I've spent a lot of time figuring out all the taxes for in-state (Washington) sales, but I don't know a thing about out-of-state shipping or taxes. Our contact with the state Liquor and Cannabis Board is a pretty helpful guy, so maybe he can help with this. I'll try to get him Monday.

Thanks for asking. Oh, and could you PM me your state?

Thanks, SP. We did another tasting/demo at a local restaurant bar, and they loved the aged whisky. They were the first customers to taste it. Obviously, I'm chuffed.

Bob, just send pabon a bottle and write it off as loss. Cash is always king!

Pa, although I'm the designer, builder, recipe source and distiller for Cultus Bay Distillery, I'm not one of the money partners, and they have decided we can't do any "informal" out of state shipping. I'm truly sorry.
