    Sad day

    Found this on youtube today. I was six years old when this happened.

    Thanks for posting those clips. The black and white newspaper photos definitely didn't do justice to what actually took place that day.

    I grossed over eight thousand dollars in one night. Time of your life, huh kid?

    That's unbelievable. I was a senior in high school in Central Indiana when this happened, so I had no knowledge of it.

    I was about a decade out of High School, but I don't remember seeing footage of it. I guess I was too busy with other stuff.

    Thanks for posting the vids, guys......

    I was 26 that year and in Central Indiana as well. Had no clue, either. I'm sure it was on the news, but I have no memory of it.
    Thanks for sharing the videos. It looked like a literal lake of fire surrounding the distillery. I'm sure the whole thing was horrifying for those working at HH that day.

    Gives me the shivers just thinking about it. I remember the news back in 1996 talking about burning whiskey flowing into creeks. I am very glad the company recovered from this unfortunate setback.
