    So did we find out exactly(factually) how many cases of Cherry Rye were produced, or at least shipped to wholesalers/retailers?

    They can't divide up a case, it's illegal

    Meaning that they had to get a whole case, distributors can't divide up a case

    Apparently here on Long Island, NY, we only got 20 cases, no more than 1 per store. No store will sell more than 1 bottle. Damn them!

    This varies by state. Many states allow split case sales.

    I wanted the cherry, real bad. Called a few places near me, they weren't getting any, so I said "such is life."

    And then I wept in private
