I've oft been told by learned friars,
That wishing and the crime are one,
And Heaven punishes desires
As much as if the deed were done.
If wishing damns us, you and I
Are damned to all our heart's content;
Come, then at least we may enjoy
Some pleasure for our punishment!
Thomas Moore (1779-1852)
Don't think Mr. Moore was talking to his bottle, but the argument holds.
We're busy working on a Whiskey Revolution project with our 5 Distillery Row friends- each of us making a barrel of whiskey from the same mash (100% PNW-grown malted 2 row barley). Barreling is scheduled for Sunday June 22. We'll be comparing the whiskies over time to explore our distinct distilling styles.
