  • Remaining portion of Bardstown bourbon warehouse collapses

In an apt metaphor for American society, what remained of the Kentucky bourbon warehouse came crashing down on July 4, two weeks after parts of the structure first collapsed.

No one was inside the warehouse at the time of the collapse and there were no injuries.

Spalding said crews, including the Bardstown Fire Department, arrived at the scene within five minutes.

"As a result of the Barton 1792 Distillery team's preparation and quick action, no runoff from today's collapse entered any waterways", she added. That half of the structure survived the initial June 22 collapse, but the potential for it to come down had structural engineers trying to find a way to shore up the structure and allow for workers to begin removing the estimated 9,000 barrels damaged or destroyed in the initial collapse.

The team "worked quickly to contain the spill from the barrels" and had equipment onsite "to address any further problems". Hundreds of fish were killed.

Almost 1,000 fish were found dead in Withrow Creek and the Beach Fork River near the Barton 1792 distillery in Bardstown, according to officials with the Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet.

State environmental officials had said they would fine Sazerac Inc., parent company of the distillery, up to $25,000 per day. Sazerac is already facing citations for the original alcohol spill and for not reporting it promptly to state officials.

Warehouse 30 at the Barton 1792 Distillery, located in Bardstown, was undergoing a wall fix when one side of it first gave out on June 22, dumping the contents of 9,000 barrels of bourbon into two nearby creeks. The cause of the first collapse is still unknown.

Now, the company is looking to build a new warehouse with hopes of salvaging the barrels that are still intact.

According to its website, the Barton 1792 Distillery had 29 barrel aging warehouses on its property before the accident.

The remaining warehouses have all been inspected by a third party and have all been deemed to be safe, the company told WLKY.

Sazerac also owns Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky.
