That's interesting. It would suggest they are buying grain neutral spirit in bulk, diluting it, and redistilling it with their own water. Pretty gimmicky if true, but I know of other microdistilleries doing just that.

Yea these was a massive propitiation again sprints in the 19th C, nearly or most largish town had one distillery
