"Part of the distiller's traditional art lies in moving the barrels up, down and around in the warehouse to make the best use of the building's temperature variations"


BS As far as I know, only Makers does this, which they refer to later in the article. The art is choosing which barrels to dump, not moving them around.


"I don't see that being a problem unless the Gulf of Mexico decides to invade Tennessee."


At which point the aging of bourbon wouldn't be very high up on the priorities list.

That's a good article. I liked it when Dale posted it yesterday, too.
