In Kentucky, bourbon is not just our thing. It’s everything.
After all, we have been making it for longer than we’ve been a state.
Our Roots Run Deep

There’s a reason 95% of the world’s Bourbon is made in Kentucky. And it’s not just because we’ve been perfecting our craft since the very beginning.

Bourbon and grains go hand-in-hand. So having some of the most fertile soil around makes Kentucky the perfect place to grow corn–something you can’t make Bourbon without.

Because Kentucky sits on top of a massive limestone shelf, the water flowing through our Commonwealth is naturally filtered and packed with the minerals yeast need to thrive. Many believe our pure limestone water is the secret to making the world’s best Bourbon.

Our hot summers, cold winters and varying humidity cause Bourbon barrels to expand and contract with the seasons. These temperature swings are a vital part of the aging process, bringing unique flavors, color and character to every batch in every barrel.
