Thousands of Bourbon Barrels Spill Out After Warehouse Collapse
Over 9,000 barrels of aging bourbon crashed to the ground after a warehouse in Bardstown, Kentucky partially collapsed. Luckily nobody was injured.
The Barton 1792 distillery warehouse stores about 20,000 barrels, so nearly half were displaced when a section of the building collapsed on Friday.
Officials from Nelson County Emergency Management and the EPA have been on scene making sure no alcohol has soaked into the ground or water. Each barrel holds 53 gallons of bourbon, but it looks like there hasn't been a lot leaking out.
The cause of the collapse is being investigated and crews are reinforcing the rest of the building.
