The Origins Of Many Crafty Whiskies

We’ve know about this for awhile, but it is interesting to finally see a mainstream article about how so much whiskey actually has its origins in Indiana. I remember driving by the old Seagram distillery when I was a kid and the unique smell it had.

When I found out about the distillery’s re-use awhile back, it was cool to hear it was re-purposed. Of course, some of their customers could be accused of false advertising as the article points out. So, I’d say, compare labels and if it lists the origin as Lawrenceburg, IN, take the one with the better price point. At least they put out a quality base product. It isn’t like we are talking about Bud Light re-selling their base to someone else who sells it as “craft”.
