Spokane's successful Dry Fly Distilling is ready to move on to bourbon.

After first launching a lineup of gin and vodka, the private distillery released an all-wheat whiskey last year. It was snapped up within weeks.

Now owners Kent Fleischmann and Don Poffenroth say they'll release about 75 cases of bourbon in the fall. They'll call it Dry Fly Washington State Bourbon.

No price has been set. Each barrel will age for three years, said Poffenroth.

Their site is www.dryflydistilling.com
