    Re: My Memories of Kinsey Distilling

    Congratulations Dave, that is great news! I'm really happy that they were smart enough to realize you are the perfect gateway ambassador to help them revive this historic brand.

    It sounds like these good folks are making every effort to do this the right way and I look forward to having the opportunity to try one of their products.

They have their building and are doing their stuff with the Pa LCB right now. They want me to be a spokes person for them which is very exciting for me. They will start with buying Whisky till the stuff they distill gets aged. The new Labels are something Jake Kinsey would be proud of. They called me and I just can't say how happy I am to see The Name Kinsey come back to Whiskey!

    Re: My Memories of Kinsey Distilling

    Thanks, Dave. It's taken me awhile, and several chunks of reading, but I thoroughly enjoyed the whole thread. Best part is: the good news you just posted wasn't yet written when I started reading. Keep us up-to-date.

    Harry Glad you are enjoying my writing here. Hope to do some more this weekend yet. Can't do it at work any more as they put some setup that won't let anything about Beer or whisky on.

    When it Kinsey Whisky, goes on Market I will let everyone know here! They have to start by buying from a broker till theirs has aged but it will be coming from Phila and the Company Name will be Liberty Distilling Corp! They will be operating at Callowhill and American street. Not far from where the Old Schmidts brewery was. Looking forward to hearing from them very soon. From what they said they will buy from the Broker Smooth Amber Does. The Master Distiller was the man who created Blue Cut Vodka a few years back, which won many awards.

    Re: My Memories of Kinsey Distilling

    Went to work today to find out I am retiring even though at 67 on Tuesday I can't afford to. Gave 15 years to this company to find myself being pushed out. Things were not like this when I worked at Kinsey, you did your job and you had no worries! Turning 67 on Tuesday and just found out today that things are changing and they don't need me! The last 3 months they were making my life Hell I figured they were trying to make me quit and there was no way. So now I get severence pay and to say i am retiring and have to wonder how I am going to make it!
