Jim Beam Warehouse Fire 7/3/2019

Latest warehouse fire in a barrel storage facility:

It seems like these warehouse fires in aging facilities (aging with relation to spirits, not old) are happening quite often lately.

45,000 barrels estimated gone; however, they were relatively young barrels and are not expected to impact overall supply.


Well, what do you expect from firewater?

While last week’s fire at a facility in Versailles, Ky. has been put out, 45,000 barrels of aging whiskey has been destroyed. No one was injured in the fire, which was put out Sunday.


Only thing worse would be if it had been Jack Daniel’s

…and the fish would likely be happily floating along…
