From the people who brought you the new and improved Wild Turkey 90 proof Russells Reserve, get a load of their latest brilliant idea. In a posting today on Whiskyportal.com, Pernod Ricard announced that it will close its Lawrenceburg,IN distillery by 2008. This company really makes a lot of sense. Last fall Pernod announced that it would move its bottling to the Lawrenceburg,IN plant in spring 2006. I just visited WT on April 13th and was told the botlling line moved to Indiana at the end of March. It reasoned that the Indiana plant had a faster bottling line. Now they say they are shutting the Indiana bottling line down in the middle of 2007. What will they do next, bottle Wild Turkey in India? If WT bourbon wasn't so good and the folks at Lwarenceburg weren't such a nice, great bunch of people, I would boycott the brand due to their stupid French owners. Its a shame another American company couldn't swallow up Pernod and put ownership of WT back where it belongs. I think that the people in Paris are to far detached from the American whiskey industry to know what day it is. The only thing they could possibly do to make amends is put bottling of WT back in Kentucky where it belongs. The Indiana plant also makes whiskey that becomes the Cougar bourbon brand sold in Australia as well as other various whiskies that go into the & Crown blended whiskey. Another sad day in the American whiskey industry!
