Personally, I prefer it when producers are public companies, because they routinely report information of interest. For example, this from MGPI's First Quarter Results Statement. MGPI is the new owner of LDI.
"Also in the current quarter, the Company recorded initial sales, including premium bourbon and whiskeys, from its recently-acquired distillery in Lawrenceburg, Ind. Operational improvements are underway at the facility under new leadership, complemented by a stronger sales and marketing team."
I wish they would phrase it as "premium bourbon and other whiskeys," but they'll get there eventually.
