Dry Fly Distilling, a farm-to-bottle distillery located in Spokane, Washington, has just released the latest in their popular line of “On the Fly” canned cocktails, the classic Greyhound. Set to hit stores this May the old school cocktail will include Dry Fly’s Gin blended with grapefruit juice.
The Greyhound gained popularity in the 1940’s after being featured in Harper’s Magazine. It gets its name from the “Post House” restaurant which was located in Greyhound bus station terminals. The drink became a favorite of bus travelers and is considered a classic today.
“I think the main reason for the success of our canned cocktails is the premium ingredients,” said Head Distiller Patrick Donovan. “We only use the finest fruit juices, syrups and spices in all our cocktails, along with our award-winning gin or vodka. The Greyhound will feature our gin and some fantastic grapefruit juice. It is the perfect summer refresher.”
“On the Fly” cocktails were launched in 2019 and met with rave reviews. Currently, there are 6 cocktails available—Gin & Tonic, Moscow Mule, Spicy Lemonade, Huckleberry Lemonade, Bloody Mary and now the Greyhound. The cocktails are available in four-packs and sell for approximately $12.99 each. There are also plans to add new cocktails to the lineup over time.

About Dry Fly Distilling
Dry Fly Distilling began with Don Poffenroth and a good friend, knee-deep in a Pacific Northwest river, just outside the lie on a scenic bend. The two friends discussed how fortunate they were to live, work, and play in one of the most amazing places on earth. That conversation hatched an idea to find a way to share their mutual love of hand-crafted spirits and the natural beauty and purity of the Northwest. Dry Fly Distilling was born.
Dry Fly embraces the farm to bottle approach for all of their products. Grain is sourced from family farms located within 30 miles of the distillery. Dry Fly Gin also boasts a locally sourced botanical deck. With each product consumers can be sure they are getting the finest spirits available and it is a totally grain to glass operation.
Dry Fly launched in 2007 and continues to grow. All Dry Fly products, from the award-winning whiskies, vodka and gin can be found throughout the U.S. as well as internationally. For more information on our products and the distillery please visit www.dryflydistilling.com.
