According to Fox News, a portion of a bourbon storage facility collapsed suddenly near Louisville in Kentucky on Friday morning, leaving the other portion in danger of buckling with little support.

Water samples taken in the area have come back clean.

Officials said no one was harmed at Barton 1792 when the rickhouse, a storage structure for aging bourbon, suffered partial structural failure.

WLKY is reporting the building collapsed at the Barton 1792 Distillery around 11 a.m. Friday. Spokeswoman Amy Preske said the company was assessing the damage and declined further comment.

The Emergency Management director said he has attended to warehouse fires, but never a collapse.

Pardon bourbon lovers for crying in their beer after half of the barrels being aged at a Kentucky distillery building fell to the ground when part of the structure collapsed.

Barton bourbon is owned by Sazerac, a New Orleans-based spirits company.

'At this time, we do not know which Barton 1792 brands or customers will be impacted, ' Preske said.

The Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection also responded to make sure no alcohol got into nearby water supplies. According to Spalding the building houses about 20,000.

The collapse will not affect normal operations at the distillery which will continue to be open for tours and will resume business operations.
