In a recent thread about Jim Murray´s ethnicity, Jeff Renner quoted a passage from the former´s Bourbon book. This made me revisit said tome after a longer hiatus.

I realized that I had completely forgotten that the book included a chapter about Georgia whiskey. He wrote, among other things, about the Viking Distilery, belonging to Barton, where all the Bourbon production ended up in various blends.

Does any one know anything about this distillery in pre-Barton days? Were they a "regular" distillery in the sense that they produced their own straight brands?

Thankz!
