Exciting times! My first sighting in the wild of our latest release. I was pretty surprised by this since it doesn't show as being at this particular store on OregonLiquorSearch.com. Odd, but I'm not complaining! We look to be in good company too ;)

We owe a debt of gratitude to Raz for his help in bringing this new product to market, and love how he is talking about it through the +Whiskies Wednesdays page! We're as excited as he is and can't wait for you all to try it! 
 
OK, It's +Whiskies Wednesdays and I didn't get any pics sent my way this week so I'm going to put up a link to something unusual instead: http://tvdistilling.com/our-products/morewoods/ 
+Tualatin Valley Distilling has introduced what to me is a very exciting product to the market this week. Sadly only available in Oregon at the moment, but if you beg your local store enough perhaps we can change that a bit.
Long story short, this is a pre-Victorian style dram, an Usquabetha if you prefer. Something that has not been on the market, if at all, in a hundred or so years as far as I can tell.
Full disclosure: I personally ( +Randy Raz Ullon ) had something to do with the research that led to this getting made and I don't mind shilling for people and things I find of worth. I'm kind of a history buff and have been looking into what the drams that existed before barrel aging were like. Took well over 5 years searching before I stumbled into something that actually had ingredients and process listed and not just a description. I gave what I'd found to the good folks at TVD and they ran with it from there. I can't wait to get my hands on a bottle.

Hmmm... Another interesting social network focused on privacy. So far they have an interesting model but I have a feeling they will fail early for the simple reason that there's no easy way (intentionally it seems) to find any of your friends on the service. The ability to quickly find friends is critical to the longevity and usefulness of any social network nowadays.
Five months ago, I learned about a new social network claiming to be built on the principles of Privacy by Design (PbD). Interestingly, it was designed to work specifically for localised networks. Naturally, I was curious and got in touch with the founder, Geoff Revill, for more details.

So the crew over at +Mecca Grade Growers just posted the following... you have no idea how excited this makes me! Big things are coming:

"We just got back to the farm from a few days at the CBC in Portland. We were excited to deliver some of our estate malt to +Tualatin Valley Distilling, where Corey and Jason are making some spectacular whiskies. To date, no one has made a single malt whiskey from Full Pint, and it couldn't be in better hands than these guys!"

So, yeah, looks like late Fall 2015 may see the first ever Full Pint Single Malt, all done with very locally sourced Pelton varietal malted barley from Mecca Grade's estate farm and malting facility! This is a seriously cool collaboration in the works! smile emoticon

Right. I think I came across them a few months ago and their expected crop was spoken for.

New blog post: The gospel, according to Seamus... some revelations, and effusive discussion about friends and family.  
I landed Friday at noon, feeling the familiar pang of excitement for the weekend ahead as I let the past week's stresses slough off, slowly but surely. I was, once again, in the city to meet up with some of my chosen family; those with whom I've shared many a drinks and laughs over the past 16 ...

Time is a valuable thing, respect is a powerful thing. Respect my time and we will both see powerful value... disrespect my time and watch that power and value fly from your grasp as you become irrelevant.

A seriously fun day out at the Saddle Butte Machine Gun Shoot! Thanks to JC Weaponry for the walkthroughs for each platform. This was a stellar fund raising event that gave us civilians an opportunity to shoot a number of guns we'd likely never be able to shoot otherwise. Tons of full-auto, suppressed, and very historic weapons platforms to choose from. Big smiles were seen all day :)

Indeed, there are days I wish I was me too... and of course days I don't ;) This was the former of the two. Unbelievably fun!

A spot on article just in time for #WhiskiesWednesdays  / +Whiskies Wednesdays. Indeed we are a bit odd and hyper focused on things most have no concern about.
