      Yeah, I saw the report and was concerned that it was the plant here in town. The Wild Turkey fire they mention dumped a whole lot of burning whiskey into the Kentucky River, upriver from here. Killed a bunch of fish, and made our water taste funny that Summer. Smelled funny, too. We all smelled like drunks.

      There was a fire at Heaven Hill, also in Bardstown, about 6 or 7 years ago, that burned up a large percentage of the World's stored bourbon supply.

      I think at least one of those other fires was weather-related, but I forget which one.

        CNN underscored their coverage of the Jim Beam fire with the graphic "Oh the Humanity!!"

        I guess that was funny.

            It wasn't the plant here in town, but one a few counties over. My hose would not reach that far, or I'd have tried.

              Would have replied sooner but been outside trying to stretch mine from Plano

                Apparently, they have a police officer right outside, so don't get any ideas...

                    Oh stop taunting me, can't you see I'm mourning here!!!!!!!!!
                    OMG I just now looked at the Link, as Col Kurtz in Apocalypse Now stated "The Horror,..........The Horror"
                    Disaster Relief Immediately, I wonder if the Fed can declare my house a disaster area, just because I live a time zone away should have nothing to do with it! jandj muster your Va. Texas Brigade we are marching on Kentucky! Oh Woe, nearly 40K barrels of bourbon dead before thier time. Wonder if Tony's involved? Or is this a devious Pook scheme using double agents, and sleepers to deprive me of my occasional dram of corn?

                      How many "capfulls" is 19,000 barrels? I hope this doesn't affect our supply for May.

                      Alleycat, Jewls, Trow, you know what I'm talking about.
                      i WAKE UP FOR MAY!

                        Reminds me of the time a semi loaded with Budweiser wrecked on the highway and scattered cans and bottles over a fairly wide area. People were stopping and hauling off as much beer as they could. A state trooper kept chasing people away but as soon as he would run them off in one direction they would move in at another spot. The trooper finally gave up after he discovered the impossiblity of his task. You just plain can't seperate a beer drinker from free beer.

                          It was 2% of the inventory.

                            If they priced that stuff like gas, the price would have gone through the roof regardless of the supply percentage. Can you say gouge (gou-ouch). Fricking gas went up $.22 the other day on not much more thatn some whim. Weird how the gas in the ground that has already been bought, refined and delivered is impacted by something happening now.

                              Reading about all these "hoses" that posters are talking about stretching has me wondering.

                              Are they trying to spray or trying to siphon?
