Something recently triggered my memory on the Micro Still and Customer Distillation Program that Buffalo Trace announced about 1-1/2 yrs ago. Did a search and came to this closed thread: http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/showthread.php?t=7250&highlight=purdy

I recall hearing a few references to it over the last several months, but not a lot.
Does anyone have a recent update on it's status? Like, what have they produced from it? What's aging, now? What does BT think of their investment? Any other info.?

When I went on my Hard Hat tour of BT several months ago, we walked past the micro still (seen here (http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=851937&l=9034c&id=504187490) and here (http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=851938&l=d4287&id=504187490)). Our tour guide did not mention anything going on with it except that for 10K a person could order a custom barrel of bourbon distilled according to their specs with their mashbill and stored where they wanted it.

Thanks, Kick. I saw your pics while I was searching. Did your guide mention if anyone has plunked down the 10 grand, yet?
