Town Branch Distillery

401 Cross Street
Lexington, KY 40508

The city of Lexington was built on the banks of the town branch of Elkhorn Creek. Its waters provided power for early industry, as well as limestone filtered water for distilling. Being the first new distillery built in Lexington since Prohibition, Town Branch Distillery is proud to revive the city’s distilling tradition. Located just steps from downtown Lexington, Town Branch Distillery features two imported copper pot stills and showcases a true small-batch experience from grain to bottle.


Town Branch Distillery includes the only joint brewing and distilling operation on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail® tour, and it’s one of only a handful in the world.
