Hotaling’s bonded whisky warehouse, purported to be the largest in the west, survived efforts to create a firebreak in the aftermath of the 1906 seism and holocaust which destroyed a goodly part of San Francisco. One story has Hotaling promising firefighters a lifetime’s free supply of whisky if they’d save his building.
