Where do you get Rittenhouse Bottled-In-Bond 100 proof rye whiskey in Denver/Boulder?!?

monopod | Sep 25, 201101:56 PM     1

I've been researching rye whiskeys and the Rittenhouse 100 proof is apparently the gold standard of inexpensive ($20 or less) rye whiskeys that beats even the most pricey bottles in blind tastings. Do a google search - you'll find that an awful lot of professional tasters think this is the holy grail of rye whiskeys, especially for those on a budget. It's produced by a fairly large distillery in PA, not a little microdistillery.

So, I head out to Liquor Mart. They've never heard of it. Hmm, weird. Off to the new Whole Foods liquor store; never heard of it. Superior Liquors - "sounds familiar, but I don't think I've seen it for a while." Called Argonaut and AppleJack, no luck.

Has anyone seen this stuff anywhere around Denver or Boulder? I really want to try it, and am loathe to pay $15 to ship a $20 bottle from New York. And, actually, a lot of the online shops are out of stock as well; apparently there are very limited allocations.
