Watershed Announces Watershed Rye Whiskey Release and Lottery

Watershed has announced the release of a limited amount of their Watershed Straight Rye Whiskey. This release will be available in a lottery format for 125 winners. Winners will be able to pick up their bottle for $89.99 at the Watershed Distillery (1145 Chesapeake Ave, Suite D, Columbus, Ohio 43212) on February 25th from 9am - 5pm. Any unclaimed will go on sale at 5:01pm..

This release is made with a mash bill of 57% rye, aged 6 years, bottled at barrel strength, and comes with the following tasting notes:

Nose: Graham Cracker, Caramel and Molasses, Red Apple, Tart Cherry

Taste: Spiced Fig in Brown Sugar, Plum, Apricot, Butterscotch Cake. Silky Approach with Lingering Velvet

Finish: Red Pear, Pink Peppercorn, Spice Cake and Maple

As mentioned earlier, each bottle is $89.99 + tax. Only one bottle can be won and purchased per person. You'll need to enter by February 22 as winners will be notified on February 23rd via email and text. You can enter the lottery here. Obviously, must be 21 years of age or older.  

My Take

It's too bad this is coming after Valentine's Day because this would be a cool and unique gift for your partner (or yourself). This seems like a good opportunity to get a very rare bottle of Watershed Rye. The downside is that you'll have to be in Columbus at the distillery at a very select time to be able to pick up your bottle. This greatly limits the lottery to people in and around Columbus or those who can give up a Saturday to make the trek.
