    Re: At Buffalo Trace today

    Seems like I recall during a tour some discussion of shutting down in the summer when the river was running low so as not to impact water supplies for the community as a whole for relatively unimportant activiities like water for drinking and bathing! Of course many places depend on wells and not surface water. And I could be disremembering. Bourbon was involved after all.

    Perhaps these days that is less of an issue.

    Sounds like one of those tour guide stories.

    Might have been at FR and not BT. Or it might have just been a story as you say!

    Bruce, I think you're right. Fred told us they stopped distilling in summer because of water issues and maybe the temp of the water.

    Fred can weigh in on this and let us know if our memories were totally fogged.

    I believe that was the temp of the water being too high.

    Awe-inspiring site during the tour on Saturday: a full pallet of Saz 18 in a bottling room. Of course, it was probably just empty bottles waiting to be filled, but a man can dream....

    I went on Friday. The hard hat tour was amazing and Fred was the perfect tour guide. Loved every minute of it!

    That's what I remember from one of the distillery tours, Paul. All about the cost of cooling the water down to the proper temperature for making the mash.

    If you don't mind my asking, how much is a barrel?

    An empty one?

    I think they're less than $100.
