Woodford Reserve Distillery

7785 McCracken Pike
Versailles, KY 40383

The art of making fine whiskey first took place on the site of the Woodford Reserve Distillery, a National Historic Landmark, in 1812. It is now home of innovative whiskeys, under the guidance of Master Distiller Elizabeth McCall and Master Distiller Emeritus Chris Morris. Elizabeth and Chris have been integral in driving innovation and shaping the story of Woodford Reserve, sharing the belief that the keys to making the World’s Finest Bourbon are not only time and patience, but science and art.


With cypress fermentation tanks, three copper pot stills and a historic limestone warehouse, Woodford Reserve is unique among Kentucky distilleries. It celebrates the past while producing modern American whiskeys.
