I meant to mention this yesterday but forgot (brain too full of endorphins, no doubt…) Last night we toasted President Obama (how sweet are those two words?) with Old Potrero 18th Century rye. The stuff is expensive, so although we always have a bottle on hand, we save it for special occasions. Certainly yesterday was one, but it also seemed the appropriate tipple given that the president quoted George Washington, an 18th century fellow if ever there was one, during his speech.
Full disclosure: Ol’ Po’ is made by my friend Fritz, so I’m a bit biased toward the stuff. But even leaving him out of the equation, it’s still a heckuva great drink.
