View Full Version : Vodka is Dangerous
The Kelleher brothers were happily making vodka at their Texas distillery, San Luis Spirits, until it blew up (http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcontent/dws/news/localnews/stories/010108dnmetvodka.3b35d20.html).
With that kind of determination they would have to have a little moonshiner in their genes. Time to buy a pair of fire retardant undies and get back to work.
I don't know the engineering and safety regulations that Texas may have for distilleries but I would have to think that there are standards...isolation of certain processes, various monitoring devices etc. Maybe TX is very lax in this regard.....most distilleries in KY that I have toured seem to have designs that separate the processes....though the bottling room at BT was quite aromatic of alcohol.....definitely a spark hazard. Was this a self desiged operation...having all processes under one roof? Maybe the local laws are just inadequate for such an industry.
