The state of Washington has gotten its first grain distillery since Prohibition.
Dry Fly Distilling, which plans to produce 5,000 total cases of vodka, gin and whiskey a year, is located in Spokane. Co-owners Don Poffenroth and Kent Fleischmann purchased a still from Christian Carl, the German manufacturer of all sorts and sizes of distilling equipment. The name of the enterprise comes from the partners' love of fly fishing.
Its products will retail for about $30 per 750ml bottle. The target for vodka and gin is October, with whiskey being distilled by 2009.
