Warehouse 30 at the Barton 1792 Distillery, located in Bardstown, Kentucky, collapsed completely (seen at right) on Wednesday, after the first half came crashing down on June 22 (seen at left), contaminating water and killing up to 1,000 fish. A total of 18,000 barrels may have been destroyed in both of the accidents. However, officials said runoff was contained in the second accident, and no bourbon from the second set of 9,000 smashed barrels is believed to have made it into the nearby creeks. No injuries were reported in either incident. An image is shown inset of a warehouse on the distillery property, with a tree carving of bottle of 1792 small batch featured in front of it.
