OUAKD1NG A WHISKY FORTRESS
Tho Precautions Takon in England
to Secure Payment of Duty.
It may bo truthfully assorted that
thoro aro few places on tho face of
tho earth which aro guarded with
tho unceasing diligeneo and the con
stant watchfulness bestowed upon a
whisky fortress. Tho many millions
of pounds which every year fall into
tho national purso from tho duty on
spirits, and tho paramount neces
sity of jealously nursing such a
fruitful sourco of revenue, have ro
Hullod in tho establishment of a sys
torn of inspection which appears to
bo as perfect as human brain can do
viso. In order that tho readers of Tit
Hits may gather some idea of tho
valuo of whisky from a fiscal point
of view, it will bo suflleiont to state
that tho duty on single largo cask
of the spirit will amount to as much
as soveuty or eighty pounds.
These casks aro stored by tho hun
dred in huge warehouses, of which
by far tho larger proportion aro
situated in Scotland and Ireland.
Wo propose to relate a few of tho
extraordinary precautions which aro
practised to defend theso strong
holds against the attacks of the
To do this moro effectually, wo
will imagine ourselves as forming
part of au iurading army, intending,
if possible, to carry the fortress by
assault, or, that failing, to accom
plish our purposo by stratagem.
Let us reconnoitre.
Tho object of our attack is a solid
slono building, surrounded by a high
wall. Every window is fortified by
solid iron bars, deeply fixed in the
masonry. Behind those bars comes
a further protection in the shape of
strong irou netting. So fino aro the
meshes, that it is impossible to in
sert even tho little finger. Every
opening in tho walls is similarly
Tho door is equally secure. A
heavy irou bar stretches across the
portals; it is carefully locked and
bolted. Let us take a poop through
tho grating. As far as tho oyo can
roach in tho dimly lighted interior
ariso row upon row of casks. Each
tior consists of throo different sizes,
piled ouo on top of tho other. Tho
largest caks, each containing about
120 gallons, aro placed at the bottom.
Above these is imposed a second
row of about half tho size, and at
the lop a third series of still smaller
onos. Her Majesty's Government
will draw o0,000 from tho coutontB
of this one building alone.
Presently a sentry comes along
jingling a hugo bunch of keys. He
unlocks tho door, and takes his
stand in front of it. Ho is forbid
den to leave his post under pain of
dismissal. Lynx eyed and watchful,
ho scans everybody and everything
that approaches the gate of his cita
del. Ho takes a uiostiniuuto account
of every barrel that outers or leaves
To keep theso sentrios up to their
work a staff of superior officers is
maintained, whoso duty it is, by
making calls at all manner of unex
pected times, to soe that tho regula
tions are strictly observed.
But this is not all. Lest both of
ficer and eoutry should fail to exer
cise due diligence, a third line of de
fouco has boon established. This
consists of a higher grado of travel
ing officials who mako sudden and
uuannouueed visits at all hours of
tho day and night.
In addition to theso safeguards,
there is au ingenious system of locks
and labels, by which any attempt to
tamper with fastenings cau bo un
erringly discovered. Extraordinary
precautions are taken to proserro
the keys of tho fortress, the sontry
not being allowed to leavo them out
of his sight for a minute.
Finally, thoro is a code of regula
tions of the most severe and drastic
character it is possible to imagine.
Indeed, to judge by tho tremendous
oll'orts which aro made to insuro
that the national purso shall obtain
its duo, it would nppear as dillicult
to steal tho crowu jewels themselves
as to abstract of gallon of whisky
from a whisky fortress.
