    Ed, you're right. The vast majority of American producers spell whiskey with an "e," but there are two major exceptions: Maker's Mark and George Dickel. We've corrected the article to say it's usually spelled with an "e."

    You've stated several times that "Whiskey from Ireland and the United States is spelled with an “e.” You should qualify that with the exception: Makers Mark Whisky.

    How about adding Catoctin Creek to this list? Rye whiskey is historically a Mid-Atlantic spirit, not a wilderness tipple. Get one of VA's newest distilleries on here please!
