    Rumor has it...

    On the bottlinghouse floor...

    That Heaven Hill bought Kentucky Bourbon Distillers...

    We wait to see if it's true.

    Re: Rumor has it...

    Knowing full well how rumors on factory floors work, I would say 50/50.

    To me, it would be a surprise, or am I too far away to have that opinion?

    Ya know, they say it ain't over till the fat lady sings"

    Several weeks ago I saw a legal mumbo, jumbo about a permit for distilling...and the hazards of such with distilling...Blah..blah..

    I kept asking if they were going to build the distillery back and nobody knew anything...matter of factly many came to me asking the same question.

    I would have "never" posted it here if I thought it was not so The source is pretty direct...but until I hear a announcement...it will be considered a "rumor"

    HH already ownes a non-working distillery. Why would they want another less than a mile away?

    I think it would be nice if they rebuilt the old #31. That would be sweet.

    Re: Rumor has it...

    KBD is in the middle of building a distillery.
    I assume it is/will be smaller than what HH operates now in Louisville.
    Maybe HH would like to get it and make special products.

    Maybe they just want KBD brands.

    HH already supplies most of KBD's bourbon so yeah, maybe they want their labels to.

    With the credit crunch, perhaps KBD was running short on capital as the project progressed and they went a courtin' looking for an investor.
