    Any Guesses?

    In the years before prohibition, which state had the most registered distilleries? I will give you a hint, It was not Kentucky.

    I was going to say Pennsylvania, but recalling that probably many distilleries were making spirits and non-straight whisky and were established in the more industrialised areas, I'll go out on a limb and say, Ohio.

    My guess is Illinois, based on the (now long gone) bunch of distilleries
    in Peoria.

    Sorry Tim,
    We can rule out Kentucky, Ohio and Illinois.
