Hopkinsville, KY distillery tours, tastings and more during ribbon cutting celebration; Distillery set to make a special announcement.

For Immediate Release – May 4, 2016 

Hopkinsville, Kentucky – On Thursday, May 12, 2016 from 4 – 7 PM, Casey Jones Distillery on Witty Lane in Hopkinsville will be celebrating their official ribbon cutting and grand opening. Visitors to the distillery during the event will enjoy free tours, free tastings of the spirits produced at the distillery, hors d’oeuvres made with recipes incorporating Casey’s Cut, deals in the Casey’s Corner gift shop, giveaways, door prizes and more. Hopkinsville-native, singer-songwriter Brice Long will perform during the Casey Jones Distillery grand opening and ribbon cutting celebration.

Casey Jones Distillery today produces five spirits including the original Casey’s Cut 92 moonshine, premium charred oak barrel-produced Casey’s Barrel Cut, and flavored spirits Casey’s Cut Peach, Casey’s Cut Apple and Casey’s Cut Grape.

Each bottle of Casey’s Cut is handcrafted; using the same locally grown corn that is ground for the mash used at the Distillery to produce each bottle of spirits, Casey Jones Distillery credits their ability to produce quality moonshine with their small batch production. Each batch of the moonshine is personally filled by a member of the Casey’s crew. If it isn’t up to taste and quality standards, it doesn’t get bottled. Master Distiller Arlon Casey Jones (AJ) was born in to this handcrafted spirit, producing today’s Casey’s Cut from his grandfather’s (Golden Pond legend Casey Jones) original square pot still design. Casey Jones Distillery is a member of the Kentucky Distiller’s Association and is certified Kentucky Proud.

“We look forward to welcoming everyone on May 12 and celebrating the spirits we are currently producing. Visitors that day will also hear a special announcement about something exciting happening at the Distillery. We are so appreciative of the community’s support to this point, and we’re happy we have waited for our grand opening and ribbon cutting celebration to kick off the summer,” said Arlon Casey Jones (AJ), Master Distiller of Casey Jones Distillery.

The schedule of events for the May 12 celebration is:

4 – 5:30 PM: Free Distillery Tours & Tastings
5:30 PM: Ribbon Cutting & Special Announcement 6:15 PM: Brice Long Performance
