    A contest of sorts

    Attached are a few pics I snapped recently.
    There is no prize, other than getting the news about some new American Whiskey.

    Here are the pics.

    Can you guess?
    1. What City and State
    2. Who owns and will operate the equipement
    3. What they will likely produce

    The first pic is the smaller of two similar vessels that will be used together. The second pic are the reflux towers. The third is the access port to the smaller vessel.

    Any takers??

    Ed, my first thought echoed Timothy's, but -- knowing your soon-to-be neck of the woods, Tuthilltown in Gardiner, NY, also came to mind.
    If the latter, they'll use it to make a wide range of whiskeys and spirits, as they're already doing.

    We have the state.
    It's Kentucky.
    The city remains to be identified.

    The style is exactly right. It will be Irish Style Whiskey.

    When you get the city, the owner/operators become easier.

    Seems there was an operation being talked about in Paducah, KY, but I don't remember who was involved in it.

    And isn't Laura Lee Brown (of Brown-Forman association) invested in a new development in Louisville that will include an operating distillery?

    Re: A contest of sorts

    The Paducah operation (actually, nearby Hickman, KY I understand) is a venture of Memphis, TN attorney Ray Jamieson.

    Could the Irish-sounding surname of Mr. Jamieson suggest he is setting up plant to make an Irish-type whiskey in addition to the previously announced bourbon? I don't know.

    No Headway yet.

    But Tim is closer, regionally, than anyone else.
