Some of you may have noticed my new avatar. It is a photograph of the Harlan Distillery in Monroe County, Kentucky. I have a companion photo of the distillery that shows these two gentlemen distillers next to their mash tubs and fermenting vats. This distillery was a typical farmer distiller operation in a wooden barn with a wooden trough bringing water into the distillery from a hillside. They were taken in 1918, but could have been taken in the early 1800's. This was real Old Fashioned Fire Copper whiskey made in small batches.
