    BT Micro Still Updates?

    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/forum...ighlight=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 and here). 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.
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

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