    Re: Any progress reports for CMDK(Medley)?

    Angostura has been trying to sell all of its U.S. holdings, including Owensboro, Lawrenceburg, and the distillery in Georgia, without success. No activity otherwise.

    Asking price is $7.5 million according to the ADI forums.

    Giving this a bump since the other thread reminded me and I didn't want to hijack that thread. Anyone know anything about the status in Owensboro?

    Re: Any progress reports for CMDK(Medley)?

    The owners are actively trying to sell it and quite a few folks have kicked the tires. A few deals, I'm told, have been close. Something is clearly scaring folks away, though it could just be an unrealistic asking price. If the price were reasonable, someone would buy it as a maturation facility, rather than building new warehouses. The warehouses are in fair shape and there's space for something like 120,000 barrels.

    Thanks Chuck. It would seem to be a logical site for bottling/distribution as well being close to both an E-W and a N-S interstate.

    I imagine the price is a big factor and I would imagine asbestos is on site for sure, which would have to be abated. You would probably have to put 5 million in it just to make whiskey. Assuming the beer still and doubler are operational.

    Re: Any progress reports for CMDK(Medley)?

    I've been pretty close to that situation and I don't think there's an asbestos issue, like there is at Stitzel-Weller. I'm not sure of the status of the stills, but I don't think they are operational, and I know they need a boiler. The old bottling hall was fixed up to be the welcome center, so the building is in good shape but there's no bottling equipment. Sazerac, of course, has a huge modern bottlig plant on the other side of town, where Glenmore used to be.

    Since anything can be sold if the price is right, the price obviously isn't right for what prospective buyers think it is worth.
