You often hear you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. Well on the flip side when your entire distillery operation was a corn field just five years ago, nothing is old and literally everything is new. Such is the case at Bardstown Bourbon Company located in the heart of the Bourbon Capital of the World, Bardstown, Kentucky.
This distillery field of dreams has grown into one of the premier distillery and tour destinations not just in Kentucky but in the entire country. Bardstown Bourbon’s path is different than most new distilleries. Instead of building a distillery and launching their own brands, Bardstown Bourbon brands only make up 15% of distillation while the remainder is for their distillery partner brands. Many of those ‘other’ brands are well known national brands like Belle Meade, Hirsch, Calumet, Jefferson’s Reserve, High West and James E. Pepper while others are up and coming and because of aging may not be known to the world for a few more years.
