I received this question via private email. Anyone know the answer?

>I'm a member of a trivia team in Friday Harbor Washington.

> Each week we receive a number of questions to research. This week, the
> question "How many distilleries were operating in Daviess County at the
> beginning of the 20th century?" is the tough one.

> It appears that in 1896 (?) the county was the number one producer of sour
> mash in the nation.

> Any chance someone out there can help?
