Already got a salesman trying to hype this today “you never know how it’s going to affect availability”. Never let a crisis go to waste

One of the local stores was cleaned out of standard 1792 this morning.  The liquor manager told me the buyer cleared the shelf and told her about the rickhouse collapse.

Doesn't Barton/1792 keep Brandy, as well Bourbon... and, maybe other spirits that require aging?     I know they bottle a large and varied list of other spirits for many brands other than their own Barton and 1792.

Yes. And there's likely a mix of all the spirits they age in each rickhouse as they like to spread things out to guard against incidents just like this.

I've heard similar stories from other cities.

What a bunch of freaking idiots. Won't they be surprised when Barton's stocks aren't effected at all and they're left sitting on all these bottles they bought hoping to flip.

^^^ HA!    Heeee-Heeeeeeeee!   Good one. 

I assume it's in the worx already; but maybe not yet bottled quite so soon.

Not sure which is more impressive.  Your whiskey collection or your album collection.  I can see what whiskey you have but it is difficult to read your album titles.

Not my pic. Id like to think my whiskey collection is better. I know my album collection is better.

Yes this, and it was alluded to in one of the articles covering the collapse. No doubt bourbon is involved but its very likely not 100% of what was againg in that warehouse.

By the power vested in me, I hereby call a complete and total moratorium on any new references to any cutesy naming of future Barton releases that may come from these fallen barrels, like what occurred with the initial collapse.

Just in case anyone is wondering, I merged the two threads pertaining to this topic.

Not really unexpected; but, a bummer, nonetheless.    :(

Hopefully, Barton/1792/Saz doesn't lose too much stock in the final analysis.   ...And, hopefully the losses won't turn out to all be bourbon.

OMG, Buffalo Bob, where was I?  I missed this completely.  Not the collapse - the merger.  Gotta spend more time with the Business Section I guess.

 

Now, then, before the fireworks start, I got to get on a ladder to reach the VOB BIB "100 proof" I picked up last month.

I had read somewhere that the upper floors typically stores brandy, so I don’t think it will all be bourbon. 

 

Hopefully even with the collapse they can salvage a good amount of the barrels.
