    When I took the Hard Hat Tour in May, I asked about this and she said they are only shutting down for the "mandatory 2 weeks" this year because of demand. I should have asked if the mandatory thing was some sort of government law because now I'm curious.

    Annual maintenance I should think, hard to give one part of the distillery a good going over while the rest of it is running.

    At Buffalo Trace today

    Hottest week of the year made for a steamy tour.

    The number of experimental barrels in the rickhouse we visited was staggering. Each barrel was stickered with a bar code no matter the age.

    Ohh to have access to that database.

    Guess there won't be any 'accidental' barrels lying loose around there.

    At least, not until it is time to release a new product.

    I remember Freddie pointing out some "peated" barrels when we were there.

    We saw some of those as well, in addition to a whole bunch of other stuff, some labeled as to what it was and some merely marked "experimental."

    Distilleries normally shut down during the summer months because the heat has an ill effect on the yeast. Do some research on this. but it's longer than two weeks. It's not a government mandate it just good old fashion distilling practicing.
    Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider, is chaos for the fly.

    Yes, I remember reading all about that. That's why I was surprised that they were staying open 50 weeks this year.

    so who was this "JW" guy...does he have a middle initial, maybe one not capitalized?

    nice pics of the barrel selection. looks like fun.
