    Oh, man...oh, man...I do love the Beam. And I don't think one warehouse is going to have an impact, but that's just me guessing.
    On a less than serious note, that's the very definition of alcohol abuse.

    Dunno. But I'd have to think 45,000 barrels is a considerable amount.

    Well, it's a little bit more than what the local dive bar has in stock, but just to be certain I'm headed to the store tomorrow to...uh...check on some things.

    I got curious how much whiskey was in a barrel.
    According to one website;
    The standard American Bourbon barrel is 53 gallons, or around 195 liters.
    So, 45,000 barrels = 2,385,000 gallons or 8,775,000 liters of whiskey up in smoke.
    Good grief, that is a lot of whiskey.
    Assuming an average price of $25 per liter (which I am guessing), that equates to $263,250,000

    Ouch!

    Wasn't there another whisky fire not too long ago.

    I think that was a collapse, I'm not sure.  But it did kill a bunch of booze.

    Where's the fire prevention equipment at Beam?   Oh well.  One hell of a write off, I'm sure.

    That’s a lot of accelerated Angel’s share. 

    Luckily, it sounds like no Basil Hayden was hurt.

    If you've ever been to Bardstown, Ky they have rack houses all over town where they store the barrels to age. They look like old rustic barns / buildings ready to collapse at any time. This is the Bourbon capital of the world. Heaven Hill, Old Grand Dad, Makers Mark as well as Jim Beam all have their distilleries here. They had a fire at the Heaven Hill distillery that burned for 3 days and was supposed to have been one of the hottest fires on record. I have a buddy that lives there and used to go down to visit and he would fill me in on these things.

    Just goes to show you how much bourbon is needed to supply the world's thirst. This is just one manufacturer. I can't imagine the staggering number of gallons stored for all manufacturers. Hundreds of millions? Mind boggling.

    Still got a bottle, un-opened, that I purchased about three years ago. For some reason I had to open it.

    Since the fire, many fish have been killed from the runoff.  I bet they would be good eating!  Just be careful they don't explode on the grill.
