Default Some Good News To Begin The weekend from Barton's 1792 Distillery

NO LAWYERS - ONLY GUNS AND MONEY

Some Good News To Begin The Weekend

http://onlygunsandmoney.blogspot.com...n-weekend.html

You may remember seeing pictures and video of the collapsed rickhouse at Barton's 1792 Distillery in Bardstown, Kentucky. Initially it was only half of the rickhouse and then, before it could be safely shored up, the other half collapsed. However, all that good bourbon is not lost.

The distillery has begun the process of recovering as many intact barrels as possible, repairing the leaking ones, and discarding the ones that can't be saved. According to gobourbon.com, the Sazerac subsidiary is sorting the barrels into three categories:
Barrels that dont need repair are recorded and removed from the pile to continue aging.
Barrels that are leaky or damaged are moved to a coopering area to be repaired.
Barrels that are beyond repair are dumped into a holding tank and discarded.
The distillery has not released any information on how much has been saved.

The following two videos show the recovery process. The first video was provided by Barton's 1792 Distillery.

There is no word whether or not the distillery is going to release the bourbon from the collapsed rickhouse, Warehouse 30, as a special release similar to what their sister company Buffalo Trace did after a tornado took the roof off of Warehouse C. That release, E. H. Taylor Warehouse C Tornado Surviving bourbon, now goes for over $1,000 per bottle on the secondary market.

Not a fan of the 1792 offerings but given that it is popular they would be idiots not to offer a 'limited' release of the collapse warehouse at double/triple the normal price ... people will buy anything ... and some will pay big bucks for it.

Sorry Bob. not me. I'd never pay anything for Bourbon. Scotch on the other hand .???? I have 5 bottles of 25 year old single malt Scotch that I am saving for a special occasion. Can somebody help me? What constitutes a "special occasion".
