Whiskey shortage looms, grown adults set to cry
According to Smithsonian Magazine, demand for the brown stuff is far outpacing supply, and we may soon be facing a shortage. A large part of the problem is the lengthy aging process many distilleries employ -- purveyors like Buffalo Trace age their bourbon in barrels for 8-10 years, and didn't see this explosive demand for whiskey coming a decade ago. But apparently we're also running low on the wood used to create those barrels, so we're just screwed all around. If you had the foresight to build a bunker of Wild Turkey, it's time to batten down the hatches.
