Bluegrass Distillers is located just 10 minutes off of I-64 in downtown Lexington. The distillery began production in 2012 on a 250 gallon pot still, with each batch being mashed by hand. The next three years were spent fine-tuning their mashes and giving their Bourbon plenty of time to develop smooth, complex flavors. Doors opened to the public in November 2015. Bluegrass Distillers is building a new distillery at the Historic Elkwood Farm in Midway – Coming 2023. Visit their website for updates on the new location and tours.
Bluegrass Distillers is known for their award-winning Blue Corn Bourbon. The first and only Kentucky distillery to do so, Bluegrass wanted to showcase the unique flavor profile of this non-GMO heirloom grain.
