Bluegrass Distillers

Handcrafted Bluegrass Distillers bourbon is made in this small Lexington distillery. Bluegrass Distillers blends locally sourced, Kentucky Proud ingredients like non-GMO blue corn to make interesting whiskeys. 

It’s one of few distilleries to allow guests to draw bourbon straight from the barrel, then cork and label the bottle themselves. You can take home a one-of-a-kind, cask-strength bottle of Kentucky straight bourbon.
