    At least they're not using wood chips and pressure cookers.

    That's why they removed it. Age doesn't matter any longer as Barton is merging w Cleveland Whiskey. CleVOB.

    I remember reading somewhere that they were losing more per annum to evaporation due to rising temperatures - while not a great factor by itself, I'm sure when combined with increased demand it only serves to exacerbate the problem.

    I wonder why this isn't at the top of the list of the most catastrophic impacts of global warming.

    I'm starting to think the only (or at least biggest reason) Sazerac bought Barton was to get their hands on Barton's warehouses.

    That's an easy thing to think. Just the other day at my favorite liquor store, I took down a small promotional sign from the Dickel 12 facing because it said "Dickel 12yr." They know me (otherwise I wouldn't have done that), and I kindly informed them it's not 12 years old, it's just "No. 12."

    I think Josh is correct, Sazerac wanted Barton's facilities and the Bourbon brands were just part of the deal. Barton is primarily a producer of Canadian whisky whose sales far dwarf the Bourbon numbers.

    Is Barton still the biggest selling bourbon in the Bourbon Motherland of Kentucky?

    Doubtful nowadays. Beam 4 year and Evan Williams

    Maybe if you consider all three proofs of VOB as one product but then you would have to do the same for the plethora of products carrying the beam name.
