    Re: Two Historic Distilleries Are Threatened

    A guy I work with indicated that the distillery in Stamping Ground is being dismantled as we speak.
    Don't have verification, but he mentioned in passing.

    Wow. I heard the same thing today about that distillery in Stamping Ground. They were suppose to preserve it, but they have done the opposite. A terrible loss. The website that lists it as being saved needs to be updated.

    I would say those are grain hoppers.

    Re: Two Historic Distilleries Are Threatened

    I just rode the 1659 on my motorcycle fFrom Versailles to Frankfort this morning, past these two wonderful places and the L&G. It truly is some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. And the freedom of the bike lets you take in the wonderful aromas of the aging bourbon that lies in the wharehouses. It is definatley a place I recommend to take a look at, for any historian and boubon lover.

    Koji,
    Your picture of the Old Taylor Distillery is very powerful. I know that the Buffalo Trace Distillery could very well look like this today if some very insightful people did not buy it back in 1992 and spend over $30,000,000 bringing it back to life. I remember seeing the Old Taylor Distillery for the first time back in 1978 and wondering just what that delicious aroma was. It will be a shame to loose it forever.

    The equipment you refer to appear to be grain hoppers. After the grain has been milled, it is weighed in these hoppers prior to being dumped into the cookers. If a recipe consists of 74% corn, that may equate to 3,250#. Next the rye is weighed out and cooked.

    Amy,
    I am working with Dan Pezzoni on some historical background of the George T. Stagg Distillery (now the Buffalo Trace Distillery) and he told me about the work you have done for your thesis. Both he and I are impressed with your passion for your work. If you are ever in Frankfort, stop by for a tour. I will be happy to show you around.

    Ken,

    See my tangential (i.e., hijacking) response under "Weights and Measures" in the General Bourbon forum.

    Yours truly,

    You can easily drive by these places. And certainly if you need help the folks at L&G/Wrodford R or at BT would likely sketch out the way for you. They are not difficult to find if you know the area.

    Re: Two Historic Distilleries Are Threatened

    In Japan we have Sake and Shouchu, it is our countries historical drink,like the
    French has there Wine and Cognac, we too had our rough times and alot of
    historical(or not) Kura (which is a like a distillery) has vanished during these
    times. Bourbon is known and loved all around the world, it is America's
    drink and I mean really only in America, I as a non american can do so little
    or nothing at all, but I save money to go to this place every year where long
    ago Dr.Crow might have been at the same place where I stand, and thought
    about whiskey. These places must be important to the history of your
    countries main drink if it can be saved in any way I would want to help.

    I just love the air and surrounding around Glenns Creek, there is no where
    like it. Full of history.

    Koji
    Too much Barton and HH and a little Shouchu tonight.
