Glenns Creek Distilling

The historic Old Crow Distillery sat abandoned for more than 30 years before being reopened as Glenns Creek. This bourbon landmark originally produced whiskeys made by Dr. James Crow, who is known for perfecting the sour mash technique. 

Crow’s style is the foundation of whiskeys made today at the repurposed and salvaged facility. This even includes wild yeast collected from one of the old fermentation tanks.
