bourbon country

Founded in 1885 as Green River Distillery and located on the iconic Kentucky Bourbon Trail, Owensboro’s Distilled Spirits Plant Kentucky #10 went through fire, Prohibition, multiple owners, abandonment, and a long period of dormancy before its revival in 2014. After two years of renovation and thorough modernization under the expert eye of Jacob Call, third-generation master distiller, and seventh-generation Kentuckian, our success has exceeded even the highest expectations. Today we’re the fourth largest independent bourbon distillery in the world.

An Iconic Distillery Since 1885

The original distillery was founded in 1885, and Green River lore has become some of the most fascinating in the whiskey world. Producing a bourbon known as the “most expensive spirit ever sold,” 20 barrels of this whiskey were once traded for interest in a Colorado gold mine. We take this history and legacy seriously, working to restore the distillery and preserve that incredible heritage. It’s more than that just the distillery though. Over 100 years of spirit crafting knowledge comes with this legacy, from mash bills to trade secrets and beyond, we are the custodians of a proud spirits tradition. We combine this legacy with modern science and business acumen to help our clients craft custom spirits to exist as a part of our legacy and a cornerstone of theirs.
