    The customers are buying aged whiskey, ready to sell. MGPI has warehouses.

    re a 51/49 bourbon, mainly because corn is so much cheaper and because most of the whiskey's body comes from the corn, but you also need some malt. Ten percent is typical, so the best you can do is 51% corn, 39% rye, 10% malt, which is essentially what the high-rye bourbon recipes are.
