Dancing Goat Distillery Announces Barrel Filling Party to Benefit Distill America Dancing Goat Distillery is excited to announce a special Rye Barrel Filling Party to kick off Distill America X, Wisconsin’s premiere distilled spirits celebration and tasting event organized by the Madison Malt Society. The free Barrel Filling Party is scheduled at 7 pm on Friday, February 23 rd at the distillery, located at 909 Vineyard Drive in Cambridge. Dancing Goat will fill one 53-gallon barrel made of new, American Oak with a signature Rye mash. A second 53-gallon barrel will be filled with the same Rye mash in Vintage American Oak. Everyone who shows up to the Barrel Filling Party will have an opportunity to sign the barrels and be a part of Distill America history. The barrels will then age four years. Over the course of each year, they will act as an educational tool at Distill America to provide a hands-on demonstration how whiskey changes in barrels year over year, both in new and vintage oak barrels. To accomplish this, Dancing Goat will bring samples from both barrels to the 2019 Distill America event so visitors can taste the one-year aged distillate side by side. Then in 2020, Dancing Goat will bring the 2019 samples to Distill America along with new samples from 2020 to do another side by side comparison and to experience how the Rye matured. This will be repeated in 2021 with samples from 2019 and 2020. Then, in 2022, the barrels will be dumped and bottled, and again, Distill America visitors will get the opportunity to experience the Ryes over their entire, four-year metamorphosis. Once bottled, these dedicated Ryes will be available for purchase, with all proceeds donated to Distill America. VIP+ ticket holders in 2022 will get a 375ml bottle included with the purchase of their ticket. Don’t forget to head over to Distill America at The Edgewater, located at 1001 Wisconsin Place in Madison, on Saturday, February 24 th from 6 pm – 9 pm. If you have VIP tickets, the doors open early at 5 pm, and this year VIP+ tickets get you through the doors at 4 pm. If you haven’t yet purchased tickets, head over to http://distillamerica.com to buy them online. For more information, contact us at (608) 467-4905, or email via firstname.lastname@example.org. ...

A nice article in today’s Isthmus https://isthmus.com/news/cover-story/local-craft-spirit-industry-distill-america/
The rise of local distilleries is hard to miss, across the east side of Madison — and statewide. While deregulation made it possible, it’s word of mouth that’s making the scene thrive.
