Two warehouses at Jim Beam in Kentucky caught fire late last night, likely destroying around 45,000 aging barrels of whiskey.
Local news stations report that the blaze began around 11:30 p.m. at one warehouse, and then spread to an adjacent building. Lightning is a possible cause of the conflagration, according to officials.
No injuries have been reported.
Firefighters have since put out the flames.
This catastrophe comes nearly a year after the collapse of a barrel warehouse at Barton 1792 Distillery.
