This building displays the many generations of distilling that have occurred on this site. The stonework is from the original Tom Moore Distillery in 1879. The brown brick upper stories were added next, and finally the adjacent red brick addition in 1946.
One of the barrel warehouse's plum bobs. As barrels are added or removed from the warehouse their tremendous combined weight can shift the entire structure. The plum bob is checked to make sure the structure is kept evenly loaded.
Another sight rarely seen by the public, the inside of the column still. This still has been partially disassembled for cleaning. Through the access ports you can see the perforated 'plates'. Distillation vapors pass upwards though these perforations. Some vapors condense and will drip back down until they re-vaporize and start the journey over.
A grain storage tank, viewed from below. Grain is unloaded from arriving trucks and stored in these large tanks until needed. Tom Moore's grain storage capacity is small compared to its throughput, so grain delivery trucks arrive nearly every day.
