Part of a rickhouse at the O.Z. Tyler Distillery in Western Kentucky collapsed overnight, according to multiple reports.
This comes almost exactly a year after part of a Barton 1792 Distillery warehouse in Kentucky collapsed and approximately 9,000 barrels were damaged.
No one was hurt in the destruction in Owensboro, but at least 4,000 barrels fell, according to master distiller Jacob Call. The building held about 20,000 barrels of bourbon in total.
The collapse may be due to a storm, but an investigation has yet to determine the definite cause.
