Anyone Want Ice For Their Screwdriver?

From today's Argus:


PIERRE - What might be the first distillery in South Dakota should be in operation by Oct. 1 in Pierre.


Tom Rounds and Jamie Rounds, brothers of Gov. Mike Rounds, have bought a building near the airport for the distillery.


Half of the building will be used to make vodka, and the other half will harbor a tent-rental business.


Tom Rounds said small bottles of vodka will be sold at the distillery, and bulk vodka sales will be made to liquor stores and bars.


A law that took effect last month allows distilleries in the state to produce up to 50,000 gallons of liquor each year, he said.


I am sure it is just a coincidence that the first distillery to open it's doors after the law was approved allowing this type of business happens to be owned by Governor Rounds' brothers.


Maybe I can get a tour when I am out that way working at the airport?
