Dry Fly wins awards, makes 12

Dry Fly Distilling won several medals at the recent New York World Wine & Spirits Competition and San Diego Spirits Festival International Spirits Competition.

The Spokane-based, small-batch craft distiller won double-gold for its Cask Strength Wheat Whiskey and silver for its Triticale Whiskey, a hybrid grain whiskey, in New York City in September.

Its Washington Dry Gin won gold and a Founders Award in San Diego in August. That competition was open to emerging craft distillers and American merchant bottlers as well as large distillers. Dry Fly also won gold for its Triticale at the event. Dry Fly is owned and operated by Don Poffenroth and Kent Fleischmann.
