Yup, this is a Pokémon Go story.
Unless you’ve been hiding out under a brick, you likely know of the runaway mobile game of the moment, Pokémon Go. This title, a “location-based augmented reality game,” drops the little critters from the Pokemon world all over the real world. You track them down through your smartphone, and in a growing number of cases, you can find them popping up at distilleries.

Below are some places where Pokemon have been found, so, should you wander by, you can enjoy a dram or two as a reward for capturing your virtual creature.

Not everyone in the whiskey world is thrilled about Pokemon Go however:
The only way I’m playing Pokemon Go is if any of those dumb creatures are lurking around the bourbon aisle at my local liquor store.
