Can you find Rittenhouse?

Unread postby mrviognier » Sun Feb 14, 2010 2:46 pm

My Heaven Hill state rep just got back from a week in Bardstown. I asked him what the status was on getting more Rittenhouse. We've been out of the 80 & 100 for months, and while I do have some 23 & 25 year-old to sell, cost keeps most of our customers away.

He tells me that the distillery is not bottling any 80, but will soon have some 100 proof to release. I should know what the state's allocation will be by week's end.

Am wondering if others have had trouble finding an of the 80 & 100 in their markets?

My experience finding Rittenhouse BIB 100 around the Indianapolis, and Bloomington, Indiana areas is that it comes and goes (if you know where to look). There are a few of the better stores in Indy that sometimes have it. The biggest liquor store in Bloomington sometimes has it. Grocery stores, drug stores, and most liquor stores never have it.
