Blog: Olly WehringIs Bourbon shortage a marketing ploy?

Olly Wehring | 20 May 2014

A year ago, I professed to being confused about a press release from the owner of the Buffalo Trace Bourbon brand, The Sazerac Co, that warned that its stocks were running low.

My question to you, dear reader: How cynical are you, really?

As cynical as this journalist interviewing the head of Sazerac, Mark Brown?
