That has to be one of the D'OH moments for the owner.

Ah, well, it was only rye. No big deal.

Sad...but not smart on the owners account.

Maybe the guy's liver is now worth $102,000!
 
And frankly, I doubt very much that Andrew Carnegie drank rye, though I do believe that Frick did. 
 
When I was a kid we called it "mean whiskey" because consuming it would make an otherwise "happy drunk" MEAN!  And Frick certainly did have a mean streak.

The Whiskey Rebellion occurred in 1791 in Western Pennsylvania. We were the hard drinking frontiersmen back then, and still are!

And good businessmen, too.  The rich farmland of Western PA produced large surpluses of grain which, before the railroads and the PA Turnpike, was impossible to ship economically "back East".  So, they made whiskey - which was both non-perishable and had weight-efficient value for shipping via horse-drawn carts - and "exported it" to the population centers on the Atlantic coast.
 
David Bradford remains one of my personal heros.  His Washington, PA house has been a museum for over 100 years.
