When I was hired at Heaven Hill they ran a check on me to make sure I did not have a felony record. You cannot work there if ya have one. Everyone who works there is Bonded. I guess cause it is a goverment controlled substance? ----Does the government trust me?---- I am so proud ----Geeeee Whizzzz----I am Bonded----

No Barney Jo it is just the opposite -> It means that the gov't doesn't trust you at all. Bonding is a public statement of trust. Be it bourbon or be it Barney. You must meet certain criteria and you're in with the political correctness crowd. We all have o keep our jobs. Therefore we just suck it up and live until tomorrow.

I know what Bonded Whiskey is. I know how they used to have government supervision when they bottled it......What are bonded people?....I went to work and asked a lot of people that question. They gave me the same answers I posted earlier.....but I wanted to know why are all of us bonded?.....Some of the answers I cannot post....The majority wanted me to find out...So I did.......A special thanks to Carmel Cecil who did the findin out for me.
