    Re: Whiskey getting harder to find

    Are any of the distilleries actually building new processing capability or are they simply running longer with the plants they have?

    As noted elsewhere, this will help:

    Makers Mark has expanded their capacity.

    WT doubled their distilling capacity with their new distillery but that doesn't help much without more warehouses. Even if they had the new warehouses today you wouldn't see the benefits for 8 to 12 years down the road.

    If they build some new warehouses I will pray for it to take 8 to 12 years for us to see the benefits. But somehow I think that they still wouldn't be bringing those age statements back.

    Whiskey getting harder to find

    They (distilleries, consumers) will adapt. Get ready for finished and super fast aged bourbons. Oh wait, they're already here. Guess they will be getting more shelf space.
