    Wisconsin pre-pro brands

    It is amazing how many distillers existed prior to Prohibition...in every state
    it seems. For example, Wisconsin is not a state usually associated with
    whiskey....but this data base show at least 5 pages of distillers:

    As expected, the majority were German distillers.

    Another Old Hickory
    Breslauer, A. & Co.

    Where was the product distributed? All local? It seems every town / county of
    any size...or not....had a distillery in this country. There must have been thousands of distillers...large and small...I don't think an accurate count is possible when you add in the farm distillers.

    I imagine most was released quite young. Too bad we can never compare these old brands to todays production.
