    Marble and Brick

    Tidbit of information from Single Minded, a "whisky journal" put out by the people who organised the recent Spirit of Toronto whisky tasting. Elmer T. Lee is sourced from barrels aged partly in Warehouse C of Sazerac Brands built in 1885 of brick but using Kentucky River marble for the first 20 feet of the walls.

    Are any other distilleries constructed of such a rare item as marble? I always thought Elmer T. Lee had a fine mineral-like taste, now I know why. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

    Can't comment on the warehouse piece of this, but I can concur that Elmer T. Lee is a fine, fine bourbon!

    Uh, I think perhaps the grandeur of Warehouse C has been somewhat exagerated. The first 15 - 20 feet of the building is Kentucky River Mable. You may know this geologic formation better as Limestone! Sorry for the confusion.
