Distilleries

Four Roses Distillery

One trip to our historic distillery and you’ll begin to understand why our Bourbon has come to be so mellow. Nestled in the quiet Kentucky countryside near Lawrenceburg, and on the banks of the scenic Salt River, the Four Roses Distillery makes the trip to this very mellow place all that more rewarding. The Distillery was built in 1910 and features a unique Spanish Mission-Style architecture rarely seen in Kentucky. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and operates continuously, except for the summer months, typically July through mid-September.

 

Maker’s Mark Distillery

This 19th-century distillery, the oldest operating, on its original site, beautifully restored by T.W. Samuels, Sr. and still making bourbon and hand-dipping bottles. National Historic Landmark, complete guided tour of our bourbon-making process. The distillery is open holidays except for Easter Sunday, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.

 

Jim Beam Distillery

A trip to our home in Clermont, Kentucky, is a transforming experience: you’ll come as a friend, and leave as family. You’ll see why crafting the finest bourbon is about more than quality ingredients and a meticulous aging process—it’s also about values like honestly, integrity, tradition and heritage.

 

Woodford Reserve Distillery

The Woodford Reserve distillery is the key to creating Craft Bourbon. Our distillery is found in Versailles, Kentucky, hidden away in the heart of the Bluegrass Region. The distillery itself is the oldest and smallest working bourbon distillery and a National Historic Landmark. Between its rich history and the Craft Bourbon distilled there today, it has quite a story to tell. The best way to hear it is to visit for yourself.

 

Wild Turkey Distillery

The original Ripy family distillery was founded in 1869 on Wild Turkey Hill in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky USA. After prohibition ended in 1933, the original Ripy Distillery went through a modernization program and started producing fine Kentucky Bourbon once again. In 1940 the now famous ‘Wild Turkey’ brand name was invented after a distillery executive named Thomas MCarthey took a supply of fine bourbon on a Wild Turkey hunting trip with a group of friends. They enjoyed the drink so much the brand was born.

Heaven Hill Distilleries

Heaven Hill Distilleries, Inc., was founded in Bardstown, Kentucky by the Shapira family to produce and market Bourbon and premium American whiskeys. At the time, it was as speculative a new business venture as the dot com start-ups of the 1990’s — a company founded with no brands, no available stocks of whiskey, and at the height of the Great Depression. Today, the company has overcome these initial challenges and grown to become the largest independent, family-owned and operated producer and marketer of distilled spirits in the country. According to industry analysts, Heaven Hill is now the seventh largest spirits supplier in the United States and is the second largest holder of aging Bourbon whiskey in the world with an inventory in excess of 800,000 barrels.[/one_half]

 

Buffalo Trace Distillery

In Kentucky, buffalo carved a pathway that was followed by America’s early pioneers. On the spot where the buffalo migration route crossed the Kentucky River, Buffalo Trace has been making legendary bourbon whiskey for over 200 years. Buffalo Trace is the oldest continuously operating distillery in America. During Prohibition the distillery was even permitted to remain operational, to make whiskey for “medicinal purposes”. Within the past decade, Buffalo Trace has won more awards than any other distillery in the world, including an unmatched seven “Distillery of the Year” titles.

 

Barton 1792 Distillery

The Barton 1792 Distillery operates on the site of the historic Tom Moore Distillery, established in 1879 near the “Tom Moore Spring”, the same spring we draw their iron-free limestone water from today. The 192-acre distillery is home to beautiful wildlife and many historic buildings, including our still house and 28 aging warehouses. The legendary “Warehouse Z” stands tall on the western bluff enjoying full summer sun and optimal air-circulation for aging bourbon whiskey.

 

Limestone Branch Distillery

Limestone Branch Distillery was founded by brothers Steve and Paul Beam. They chose Lebanon and Marion County for many reasons. Clearly, the location is very important, since Lebanon is in the heart of Bourbon Country . The location also offers an abundance of local grain and the presence of the essential limestone water that is so necessary for our unique and personal recipes.
