Bourbon shortage hits Kentucky distiller
The Louisville (Ky.) Courier-Journal reported this week:
A half-dozen liquor stores in Louisville and Southern Indiana reported Monday that they still had 750-milliliter bottles of Knob Creek available, at prices ranging from $28 to $34. But fans of Knob Creek bourbon may find their favorite whiskey in short supply this summer as the brand’s bottle warehouses near Clermont, Ky., are empty and the next batch of aged whiskey won’t be ready until November.
So, is this due to poor planning by Knob Creek or an increase in Bourbon consumption by US Citizens?
