    Google map of American distilleries

    Hi Bourbon Experts

    I've been toying with world map of whisk(e)y distilleries but had to divide them up due to limitations of google maps

    Here's the american one : http://bit.ly/bNM4HN

    As I am close to clueless (well almost) about american whiskeys, and surfing the internet the state of various distilleries can be hard to determinate, so any input is welcome. Distillery I missed, distilleries that hasn't been operating so long whiskey from them isn't really availbale anymore, wrong postions, etc.

    It was very fun to surf the internet looking for the exact position of distilleries

    Kind regards

    Steffen

    PS : other parts of the world, various trivia quizzes about whisky at my blog, its dominantly Scotland thou :

    Look at your Bernhiem (Heaven Hill) location, now go across Dixie Highway to the West, right there you will find the Old Forester Distillery. Less than 100 meters.

    Re: Google map of American distilleries

    I am really trying to only include dead distilleries which whiskey is still available on the general market, which means there's casks in stock being used for bottlings available today. Port Ellen and Brora in Scotland were the ones I had as "text book" examples of this in Scotland

    With Bourbons being matured for a shorter time than single malts, I'd reckon it would general be harder for closed bourbon distilleries to be included

    It can be hard to hard to judge. If you think I have added to many old ones , please let me know

    I am looking on the likes of Shelter Point in Canada and Las Vegas Distillery to see when they start production

    Can you give the dead distilleries a different pin color to set them off?
