Bluegrass Distillers Announces 2024 Release of Award Winning Blue Corn Bourbon

April 12, 2024

Lexington, KY – April 12th, 2024 – Bluegrass Distillers is thrilled to announce the release of its highly anticipated, award-winning Blue Corn Bourbon for 2024. This year, there will be two releases, one in the spring and one in the fall, to meet the overwhelming demand from our long-time fans and visitors.

Made of a mash bill of 75% KY grown non-GMO blue corn, 21% wheat, and 4% malted barley, the Spring release features a blend of four 6.5-year-old barrels, resulting in a total of only 825 bottles. Unlike yellow corn, blue corn pulls sweeter and nuttier notes, making for a complex, yet smooth sipping bourbon. This release is highlighted by notes of vanilla, black cherry, buttery croissant, and milk chocolate at a suggested retail price of $80 per bottle.

Bottles will be sold exclusively through our tasting rooms, online via Bourbon Outfitter, and distributed throughout Kentucky. There will be a limit of two bottles per person at both Bluegrass locations.

“The demand for Blue Corn Bourbon has been unbelievable,” said Sam Rock, Founder and Co-Owner of Bluegrass Distillers. “We have been increasing production and growing the corn onsite for the past few years, and we are less than 2 years out from having the product available in larger quantities and more consistently, which is incredibly exciting for us and our customers.”

Join Bluegrass Distillers on Friday, April 12th, at their new location, Bluegrass Distillers at Elkwood Farm, in Midway, KY, to celebrate the release. They will have live music on the front porch from 10am to 2pm, cocktails, and tastings amidst the backdrop of our new distillery and visitors center. Less than 200 bottles will be available between both the Elkwood Farm and Downtown Lexington locations.
