Drinking Science Whiskey

A Fungus Among Us


When in Kentucky, most of the distillery warehouses were covered in black mold. I asked one guide why they painted their buildings black (I had assumed to keep them warm) — but she basically said so you couldn’t see the mold. Turns out Bourbon country is not alone. Wired has the scoop on how neighborhoods located near distilleries around the world are infested with the stuff… stuff that no one knew what it was until just a few years ago.
