OUR CREED IS OUR BOND For us, the Creed in Jeptha Creed is simple: we are a family who believes in creating more than just great spirits, great food and a great time – we are creating an experience for our customers unlike any other. We’re all about honoring traditions and our heritage because, let’s face it, a lot of things were simpler back then. We love cutting through the chaos of today and going back to our roots. But we’re also driven, creative and more than just a little rebellious, and that means we love the idea of bringing back old fashion in new and exciting ways. That Creed is our bond with our customers, and we live it every single day. We know better than anyone that you gotta raise a little hell to get a bit of heaven. OUR FARM: A PROUD TRADITION The Nethery family, proud owners of Jeptha Creed, own around 1,000 acres throughout Shelby county, which includes the distillery property and their home farm. At his grandfather’s urging, family patriarch Bruce Nethery bought his first swath of farmland when he was 18—making him the youngest farm owner in the state—and has been expanding ever since. As a fifth generation farmer Bruce just had it in his blood. The 64-acres that make up the distillery property are covered in crops that are producing the grain, corn, fruits, and other ingredients that will go straight into the Jeptha Creed vodka, whiskey, and moonshine. The lines of trees are not just to provide a scenic touch. They bear apples, pears, pecans, apricots, and cherries. There are rows and rows of budding raspberries, figs, kiwi, blackberries, blueberries, chocolate mint, peppermint, spearmint, strawberries, and basil—even beehives for honey. It’s truly a farming wonderland.
