Boozy Holiday Gift Alert: Limited Edition Bourbon from Woodinville Whiskey
For those in need of clever gift ideas, have we got one hot tip: This Saturday, December 7, Woodville Whiskey Co. plans to release its 2013 Limited Collector’s Edition Bourbon, complete with a heavy-duty, display-worthy pewter label. What makes these 600 bottles (and only 600!) so special is that they contain the coveted spoils from its first five barrels of whiskey ever produced at the distillery. The $149.95 price tag gets you a 750 mL bottle that’s rife with history and cache. We think it’s a rather gratifying gift that any local whiskey lover would be happy to unwrap. Woodinville Whiskey Co.’s doors open at 7 a.m. on Saturday, with a limit of one bottle per person, plus gratis donuts and coffee at 6 a.m. If long lines from previous releases tell us anything, grab your coat and a blanket (hello, freezing temps!), and get there early. You’re certain to elicit “oohs” and “ahhs” for this one. (16110 Woodinville Redmond Rd. NE, Ste. 3, Woodinville, WA, 98072; 425.486.1199; woodvillewhiskeyco.com)
