Wisconsin pre-pro brands

It is amazing how many distillers existed prior to Prohibition...in every state

it seems. For example, Wisconsin is not a state usually associated with

whiskey....but this data base show at least 5 pages of distillers:

As expected, the majority were German distillers.

Breslauer, A. & Co.

Where was the product distributed? All local? It seems every town / county of

any size...or not....had a distillery in this country. There must have been thousands of distillers...large and small...I don't think an accurate count is possible when you add in the farm distillers.

I imagine most was released quite young. Too bad we can never compare these old brands to todays production.
