Stitzel-Weller Distillery to start making bourbon again!January 13th, 2013
Yes, it’s true. My sources at Diageo informed me back in September, but I was asked to keep quiet until they were prepared to go public with the news.
However, it appears that someone in the company (or with knowledge of the company’s plans) let the cat out of the bag, as you will witness by the comment just posted on this thread. (Secrets are practically impossible to keep these days.) So, before rumors begin flying regarding whether it’s true or not. let me just clarify and say that it is. Not only that, they are still sitting on stocks of very mature bourbon. Hopefully, some of the better barrels will be bottled for sale in the future.
As soon as I get formal details from Diageo, I will pass them along. That should be very soon. No matter how you look at it, this is very good news indeed!
