My friends, it is with great sadness that I bring you this next story. The other half of the rickhouse that partially collapsed at the Barton 1792 Distillery last month has come down. An estimated 9,000 barrels of bourbon were lost in the initial collapse. The building held 18,000 barrels, which means an additional 9,000 barrels came tumbling down this afternoon.

Tragic. Pour one out for our lost spirits tonight.
