Fishing will be popular, all you will need is a scoop net and it's already marinated....

My thoughts, too.

Possibly the only case of fish leaning into the boat to be sick, rather than vice-versa.

Beam addicts will be rushing to liquor stores buying what they can in fear of a Beam shortage.

Will we see Beam rationing?

"Sniff the cap and pass it along".

They'll recoup their losses with an up-spec commemorative release called something like "Black Wednesday Blend" and append a fractional cent donation to the local firefighters' association.

I only use things like this in food, but it's a real shame to see a globally famous product going uncontrollably to waste.

Should be some good work for coopers in the short term.

Bloomberg reported that the destroyed whiskey ó which amounted to about 1 per cent of Jim Beam's bourbon inventory ó could be worth up to $US300 million ($425 million).
Does that make JB a $30 Billion company??

You would think with the value of product talked about how can a fire start and spread so fast? Wouldn't they have the best systems in place in place to stop that?

I would have thought so too. But i think they said it was a lightning strike that started it. Could that have fried the fire suppression system?
