Less than a year after a warehouse containing over 18,000 barrels of Bourbon collapsed, another distillery in Kentucky has suffered a similar fate with around 4,500 barrels caught up in the incident.

A barrel storage facility at the O.Z. Tyler Distillery in Owensboro suffered a partial collapse, with a “small fraction” of the 4,500 barrels affected suffering damage, according to a statement from the producer.

Shortly after midnight on 17 June, the northwest quadrant of the Rickhouse H facility collapsed. No employees were at the distillery at the time and there were no reports of any injuries.
