DOWNTOWN—The release of Dry Fly Distilling's new bourbon, reportedly the first (legal) bourbon produced in the state has been generating a bit of buzz among booze nerds. The first Seattle taste of the Spokane-produced spirit happens Friday, at a release event at the Mayflower Park Hotel from 6:30 to 8 p.m. The event is also a fundraiser for Ronald McDonald House Charities and Casting 4 A Cure, and tickets are $75. Can't make it? Starting Saturday, 240 bottles will be on sale at the Interbay Liquor Store for $65 apiece. [EaterWire]
