    Vodka is Dangerous

    The Kelleher brothers were happily making vodka at their Texas distillery, San Luis Spirits, until it blew up.

    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.
    Often I am forced to deal with the fact that I prefer bourbon over dealing with facts.

    Re: Vodka is Dangerous

    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.
