FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE   Media Contact: Tyler Merchant 301-514-5836 tyler@merchantprofservices.com   Baltimore Whiskey Company Begins Construction on Geothermal System For New Distillery $100K system uses naturally cool groundwater to save energy   FEBRUARY 14, 2018, BALTIMORE, MD – The Baltimore Whiskey Company today announced the construction has begun on a state-of-the-art geothermal cooling system for their new distillery at the Union Collective. Construction is expected to be completed in early May when the new space opens.   The $100,000 geothermal system will make Baltimore Whiskey Company one of the few distilleries in the world to use this technology, which uses naturally cold groundwater for the cooling step necessary in making spirits. Capable of pumping up to 100 gallons a minute, the renewable system will be able to produce one million BTUs of cooling power before returning the water to the ground, resulting in a lossless process that uses significantly less energy than traditional cooling methods.   “We’re very conscious about making sure that our spirits are influenced by the environment where they are made,” said Max Lents, Baltimore Whiskey Company co-founder. “We’re going to take a special pride in knowing that the very ground of Baltimore City itself will be an integral part of making them.”   In January, Baltimore Whiskey Company commissioned a geological survey and drilled a test well to determine the viability of installing such a...
