I not long ago was speaking to a couple of people who worked in the 1966 Bottling house and they both told me the following story. Many People that worked there always carried a collaspible metal drinking cup and or a bending reuseable Straw. The Reason was well known if whiskey was spilled they could slurp it up with the straw and if the chance came to pour a quick drink, you had your metal folding cup in your pocket ready for the chance to try something special like the 20 year old, Old Hickory bourbon!
Sandy told me this and someone else not sure who it was but they told me the same story!
Working it that Bottling house was like being in a city people everywhere, everyone working in sink to make the great Spirits we made.
