Dry Fly Distilling to launch limited edition ‘hibernian’ Whiskey collaboration
Spokane, Washington. – Dry Fly Distilling, an American-made, small-batch distiller of vodka, gin, and whiskies, is launching O’Danagher’s Single Barrel Whiskey. This is whiskey collaboration is with local whiskey maker Tim Danaher, in the ‘Hibernian’ style.
Danaher, a Palouse-area Washington state farmer with ties to Ireland and Scotland, met Dry Fly co-owners and founders Kent Fleischmann and Don Poffenroth in 2009 while taking a distillery workshop. That’s when plans were hatched to collaborate on Scottish styles of whiskey. Six years later, Danaher and Dry Fly are launching their ‘Hibernian’ style whiskey, O’Danagher’s Single Barrel Whiskey.
As with all Dry Fly spirits, the grains used in O’Danagher’s are all grown locally. Many grains are from the 1500-plus acres Danaher farms in Eastern Washington.
“From the moment we met Tim, we saw his enthusiasm and raw talent for distilling,” said Kent Fleischmann, Dry Fly co-owner. “We are thrilled to be launching this labor-of-love collaboration after six years of no shortcuts and a farm-to-bottle spirit in the truest sense.”
Danaher and Dry Fly made roughly fifteen barrels per year and the first three barrels – now turning five years old – are set to release this fall. The expected retail is $64.95 per 750 ml.
