From today's Cincinnati Enquirer:
Very interesting. Anyone know much about the history of the Medley distillery? When did it close, and what brands did it produce? I wonder if the still were intact, or if they have built new ones.Angostura, the Caribbean rum producer that acquired the Lawrenceburg distillery in June, on Tuesday purchased the closed Charles W. Medley distillery down river in Owensboro, Ky."
"One of the gaps in our portfolio has been Kentucky bourbon," said Duprey, who said his company paid more than $3 million for the distillery.
...Patel said Angostura wants to produce about 5 million gallons of bourbon annually from the Medley distillery.
I also wonder if Angostura aquired the rights to those brand names, and if they'll market those same brand names or come up with something new?
How does 5 million gallons per year compare to some of the others?
