Bourbon - Bottle Filling

The Bourbon distilleries have such a large output, that they all can afford their own bottling line. Even distilleries as small as Maker's Mark and Labrot & Graham have their own small bottling lines.

Maker's Mark - Bottling

First the selected barrels are brought by truck to the bottling line and emptied over filters. The pieces of charcoal, which fell off the cask walls during the transport and maturation time are held back by the sieve.

Heaven Hill - Barrel Opening

Heaven Hill - Barrel Emptying

The Bourbon is pumped to a storage vat and fed from there to the bottling line.

Ancient Age / Buffalo Trace - Bottling Line

American whiskey is bottled in the most diverse bottle sizes, forms and materials. Typical are the sizes of 0.2 litres (flat bottle), 0.7 litres (Europe), 0.75 litres (US market, Japan), 1.0 litres (Duty-free), 1.89 litres (1/2 gallon). The bottles of mass products are more and more made out of plastic (PET).
