On Thursday's Market Foolery, Chris Hill and Motley Fool Funds analyst Tim Hanson talk about a possible future whiskey shortage. A whiskey shortage spells disaster for Chris. For investors, Chris asks Tim about capitalizing on the possible shortage. Tim explains how the aging process impacts the chain of supply and demand. Chris and Tim then explore the fickleness of the industry, and how other industries affect spirits. Chris pinpoints that a well-diversified portfolio is integral for any investors who have stock in Beam (UNKNOWN:BEAM.DL), Diageo (NYSE:DEO), or other publicly traded spirits. As Tim says, "As bourbon ebbs, something else will flow."
