Liquor aficionados from around the nation have been summoned to the heart of Bourbon country in Bardstown, Kentucky, as the structural failure of a rickhouse has produced a temporary mountain range composed of an estimated 10,000 barrels of the “darkest of the dark” fine liquors. At a point in time when the President and constituents needed a well deserved distraction, fate dutifully stepped in and created a chaotic scene, with an underlying infusion of humor in the latest party being literally “crashed”.
Officials report there were no injuries in the aftermath of the costly accident at the Barton Brands storage facility, and the only victims are potentially the flora and fauna inhabiting a nearby creek, according to Fox News. Locals are already imaging the possibilities of catching and consuming inebriated fish species, in preparation for Summer barbeques.
The intoxicating incident has produced a viral reaction within the social networks, as account holders are volunteering their services in helping the “clean up” the mess, on condition that the distillery provides mixers, olives, and ice.
The cocktail tragedy will certainly have resounding effects on the bottom line of Barton Brands, which produces the popular “1792” liquor. A bottle of single malt bourbon is aged for eight years and retails for around $40.
