Sazerac-owned distillery Barton 1792 has reported its second major equipment failure in a year after around 120,000 gallons of mash spilled from tanks this week, injuring two people.
According to a statement released by the Nelson County Emergency Dispatch at 5pm local time on 5 March, emergency crews arrived on site to discover that a mash tank had failed. They also discovered that a second tank had been punctured while a pipe on a third tank had been damaged, causing the two tanks to leak. The tanks had a capacity of roughly 60,000 gallons. Two employees received minor injuries during the incident, and were taken to Flaget Memorial Hospital for treatment. They have since been released.
