    Re: Maker's Mark Devil's Cut?

    If you've ever talked politics with Bill Samuels, you know he's a very conservative, small government Republican. So is Wes Henderson of Angel's Envy. Neither is stridently so, but that is their political bent. But they and plenty of others were on line today to take taxpayer money from the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority. MM got $100,000 and AE more than $800,000 for their still-unannounced Louisville distillery project. Spin it any way you want, and no doubt some will. I don't intend to make a big thing about it, I just find it amusing.

    Michter's and Wild Turkey got their incentives extended.

    Toyota is planning to expand its plant in Georgetown. They got the big bucks at $145 million, to create 750 new jobs. Is $193,000 per job a good deal?

    Somewhat surprised they don't steam out the stave juice. Shocking how much is trapped in there.

    My math says, that assuming they yield 2 gallons of additional whiskey, since they say "additional gallons", I'll assume that's at least 2, and assuming if they have typical losses as reported by industry of 10% the first year and 5% each year after. 37 gallons after 6 years. That's a 5.4% change, nearly equaling the 6.7% change they were trying with the watering it down attempt.

    Re: Maker's Mark Devil's Cut?

    To pile on makers mark again, we were finally given word that large format (1.75L bottles) of Makers Mark are on "allotment" here in the motherland, Kentucky. Cowdery spoke of this recently but was given the typical "I see stacks of makers at every retailer i visit" responses. Unfortunately people hear "shortage" and think pappy or black maple hill type of shortage. They are not the same type of products and the shortages of each are not similar either.

    That's some pretty good back-of-the-napkin math there.

    I had no idea it would yield an additional 2 gallons. That seems quite high for some reason.
