I read about that. The good news is that was only about 1% of their aging inventory and fairly young at that. It won't affect overall future supply. Still a damned shame, and a waste of good whiskey.

Exactly my reaction. What a waste.

I imagine the fish are partying like it's 1999.

killed a lot of fish. I imagine there will be fines.

Beam has had fires before, in MD near BWI as I recall.
