Whiskey Barrel Tree.

Whiskey Barrel Tree

The Whiskey Barrel Tree is outside of the Templeton Distillery.

[Misty Schroeder, 08/01/2022]

The ten-tier stack of barrels is decorated like a Christmas tree at the end of each year. It has been standing outside of the distillery since at least 2015; the barrels were much browner back then. A sign warns potentially spirited visitors, "absolutely no climbing."
