    Distillery Camera at BT

    For anyone who hasn't noticed this on the Buffalo Trace website, you can now see live video of what's going on in the Blanton's bottling warehouse. The Fermenter Room and Still House are listed as "coming soon." So you can sip Blantons while observing your next bottle being filled and corked. Pretty cool stuff!

    Re: Distillery Camera at BT

    That's very cool.. I wonder what the employees think?

    Something neat just happened. I just spent 10 minutes on there and I watched a couple of staffers as they saw the video head moving around as I panned and tilted. One woman, who appeared to be managerial, showed another employee how the cam worked. I could see the image on her screen and she kept trying to turn the camera off of them, while I kept returning it. Kinda fun. Big brother is watching

    They're running the second batch of Woodside Partners' Reserve right now. Julian is there watching the operation. The labels say a run of 200 bottles. That means each 1/15th share will get 13.33 bottles. I wonder how the .33 will be distributed?

    I can't stop watching the webcam!

    I really like being able to control the camera. That takes the
    experience to a whole new level.

    Hey, was that you that kept moving the camera around while I was trying to read the label?

    LOL. I almost hopped on a plane to check, but that would take at least 12 hours to get there.

    Julian is in the house, he's putting the bottles in embroidered velvet tubes, then into custom boxes, before the case.
