Fallon City Council Meeting

The Fallon City Council had a very short agenda on June 21 for its second meeting of the month. The council first voted to approve the warrants (accounts payable, payroll, and customer deposit) then moved on to the Fallon Police Department Monthly Report for May 2022. Captain Ron Wenger summarized the report for the council. “No real spikes in the police report between this May and last May. Citizen Surveys, we sent out 14 and got back 14: 11 very satisfied, 2 satisfied and one with no opinion. The Volunteers in Police Service put in 75.5 hours for the Police Department which included Domestic Violence Meetings and VIN inspections. For citizens assistance we provided one bus ticket in the month of May to get the citizen to their destination, and one indoctrination at NAS Fallon for the new sailors coming on board.”

Tasting: 2 Rye Whiskeys from Frey Ranch (Bottled in Bond, Single Barrel)

We’ve written before on the integral nature of rye whiskey to both the development of American spirits—it existed for likely a full century before the advent of bourbon—and the role that rye played in fueling the American craft cocktail renaissance. Suffice to say, rye has as much a claim to be “America’s whiskey” as bourbon, despite its perennially lower stature, and one also gets more an impression of rye as a crop (and a spirit) that is more likely to reflect the terroir of its source. Or at least, that’s certainly part of the pitch when it comes to Fallon, Nevada’s Frey Ranch and its estate-grown, distilled and aged rye whiskeys.
