    I believe that distilling happens at Clermont and Boston, bottling is done at Frankfort and aging at all 3, but how are Beam products usually labelled?

    I also think Clermont is always listed and Boston never.
    Is Frankfort listed along with Clermont on all, most or just a few labels?

    Looking at the history of assumed names, it looks like before the Clear Springs brand was owned by Buffalo Trace, it was owned by Barton, so perhaps it came over with the purchase.

    Well hopefully I'll be drinking some on Thursday night.

    I can't believe no one on here has tasted it yet.
