The Kentucky Distillers’ Association says the number of barrels of bourbon aging in Kentucky reached a record number this year.

The group said that as of January, the state reached 11.4 million barrels, or 12 million when other aging spirits are included.

The record was hit after the industry after distillers filled more than 2 million barrels of bourbon for each of the last four quarters.

The group’s president, Eric Gregory, said the tax-assessed value of all the barrels this year is a record $5.2 billion.

The group says barrel taxes reached $40 million, also a record.
