Celebration of American Distilling

Postby Endo Rockstar » Fri Feb 19, 2010 9:21 am

whew, The Celebration of Ameican Distilling
http://www.madisonmaltsociety.com/

so as the 3rd cup of coffee, the tums, the multivitamin, and the 6 asprin I took this morning have started to take effect.....did anyone else go to the edgewater last night for this event?

I want to start going down the list of things that blew me away, but I'm still a bit groggy.

First impression stand-outs where:

Templeton Rye

Tito's (which I've had many times before, but put head to head against so many other really impressed me.

Koval: Illinois organic and kosher distillery, amazing amazing amazing liqeurs, including a "Rose hip" a "Jazmine" and a "Pear" liqeur that the blew me a away.

Rogue House of Spirits: Dead Guy wiskey: f*cking awesome! From the Rogue brewing company, a newer spirits division they've started.

AEppelTreow Distilling: Fortified cherry, apple, and pear wines, and a barrel sample of their new apple brandy. I usually hate fruity stuff, but the flavor and complexity of this guys stuff was outstanding...door county wine should be put on notice =)

There's more, but I need more coffee. Anyone else have thoughts?

A guy in my band went. He called in sick for rehearsal tonight.

I imagine it was pretty awesome.

I don't have the chops for a night of straight-up booze tasting, so I'm glad Robin took the bullet (Bulleit?) for Team Isthmus. Here's hoping he's feeling all right today.

I'd like to know when the next one is, it sounds right up my alley.

I have had Rogue Dead Guy Ale, and I would love to try their Dead Guy Whiskey...can it be found anywhere in WI?

Star was displaying it (but not serving) at the Beer and Chese Fest. I don't know firsthand of anywhere else.

Take the date for this last one, and add one to the year. Place on tentative schedule, and wait.

Star Liquors sells it.

I'm not sure of the exact cost, but it's a little pricey. I bought it as a part of a random "I want that, and that, and that, and that..." spree that was done without looking at prices and had a minor shock at the cost when it was all rung up. I'm gonna guess that it's $45-$50.
