Kentucky Peerless Distilling Company has completed their barrel warehouse in Henry County.  The warehouse marks the first distillery breaking ground in Henry County, Kentucky. The warehouse is a one-story rickhouse with a capacity of 5,300 barrels.

Kentucky Peerless broke ground on the warehouse in the spring of 2018 and the grand opening will take place on October 3, 2018.  Peerless purchased 19 acres of land in the summer of 2017 to expand the warehousing of their whiskey barrels and is excited to begin this portion of their journey with Henry County.  The land can house up to 6 warehouses with a capacity of 5,300 each.  The company is currently implementing plans for the first 2.

Kentucky Peerless opened to the public in June 2015 after starting production of bourbon and rye whiskey in March 2015. Since then, they have been storing barrels in their on-site rickhouse in the Bourbon District of Louisville.  They will continue to distill and bottle exclusively in the downtown distillery.

Peerless welcomes you to join in on the grand opening ceremony where the first warehouse ribbon cutting will take place, Wednesday October 3, 2018 at 10am. For location and RSVPs, please contact Haley Routt at [email protected].

About Kentucky Peerless Distilling Co. 

The Peerless family’s very first bourbon went into a barrel in 1889. They have since revived the craft in their own state-of-the-art distillery in the Bourbon District of Louisville.  The Peerless family believes that patience builds character and fine Bourbon can never be rushed. All under one roof, the select Kentucky Peerless grains are milled, cooked, fermented, double-distilled and barreled as bourbon and rye. Peerless Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey was named the No. 15 Best Whiskey in the World by Whisky Advocate in November 2017.
