James Banks: Inspector/Wood Buyer for whiskey barrels Louisville, Kentucky

"The barrel is the most important part of the whiskey.  It gives it it's flavor and it's color.  Kentucky bourbon has to be aged in a new white oak barrel for at least four years and it takes 75 to 100 years to make the barrel -  from the tree to the barrel. You can't get in a hurry.  Making a whiskey barrel is an art.  You are always going to have to do most of it by hand.  It's been that way forever."
