100,000th barrel rolled out
A celebration among officials and employees alike was held at the John A. Wathen Distillery Company here last week when the 100,000th barrel of whiskey, made since the repeal of the 18 Amendment, was capped. The barrel, numbered 100, 000, was sealed in the presence of the group and for photographic purposes was then rolled to the outdoors where it was placed alongside the first barrel of liquor manufactured in the local plant, almost three years ago.
