    Re: A contest of sorts

    Well, this is just a guess, but since Buffalo Trace in Frankfort will be releasing a rum soon under the BTEC banner, might this equipment be planned for the Irish-style whiskey mentioned?

    BTW: As far as I know, only one other person on this board has knowledge of this info.

    This is really really new and all very techy.

    I have no guess. However I will comment that although I am enjoying the thread content the Supreme Court has findings against cruel and unusual punishment...

    I'll take one more shot at it:

    Boston, and Beam.

    It's about the only style of whiskey that's currently missing from their portfolio.

    Pickerell the former Maker's Mark Master Distiller?
    I read here on the boards that he will be distilling a wheater bourbon in Wyoming for someone.
    Sounds like a great job for both location and job tasks.

    Dave PIckerell doesn't have anything brewing with this deal.

    But a former employee of Powers Irish Whiskey does.

    He's considered a lion among his peers.

    I am now getting very interested.
    Are you hinting that someone is going to be distilling Irish whisky in Kentucky?
    I'm in, I have plenty of glasses to pour it into.

    Or maybe they are coming in from over the pond to make bourbon?
    Yeah, very interested.

    Re: A contest of sorts

    Is Barry Walsh perhaps doing a joint venture with Buffalo Trace to make pure pot still whiskey in Kentucky?

    However and whomever is doing this, it is an interesting idea. I gave the link some time ago to an 1860's story in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle about a venture designed to do just that on Long Island. (I don't know if it ever got off the ground).

    Duffy's Pure Malt Whisky, made in the Rochester, NY area in the later 1800's and early 1900's, was some kind of barley whiskey although I think it had a high degree of rectification.

    The Feckin whiskeys I mentioned recently are (or one of them certainly, the unflavored one, is) an Irish whiskey being distributed by a company out of Minnesota.

    There are numerous Irish-style red and other beers you can get in America.

    In other words, the old attachment of America to Ireland and its products is still strong, and perhaps it is felt this style of whiskey will take off here. I wish them well, it is a good idea.

    P.S. The iconography of those 70's Old Fitzgerald bourbon decanters also traded on the old ties to Emerald Isle.
