Whiskeydaddle Half/Full Marathon

10/07/18 07:30AM - 10:30AM

Whiskeydaddle describes the process of moving whiskey barrels from one location to another. It was coined in the 1840s when every distillery in Peoria employed – along with mashmen, maltmen, stillmen and coopers – a team of “whiskeydaddlers.” The job of the whiskeydaddler was to transport whiskey barrels as quickly (and safely) as possible from warehouse to warehouse and to customers throughout the city.
