Great efforts to restore the main distillery building, cistern room, aging warehouses, and many other aspects of the grounds have left the property totally transformed, with more exciting developments in the works. From underground, spring-fed lakes, to the Kentucky split-face limestone exterior, to our old turn-of-the-century belt and pulley fan systems running throughout the distillery and visitor center, it truly makes for a memorable trip.
Wyoming Whiskey makes bourbon in small batches at our distillery in Kirby, Wyoming. From day one, every drop of Wyoming Whiskey was made in Kirby and aged in one of our six rick houses. That’s not true of every whiskey you run into. We don’t pass judgment, but it means a lot to us and we hope it means something to you. Double Cask Bourbon Whiskey Whiskey gets its color and character from the cask in which it ages and matures. This Double Cask whiskey goes through the process twice. The first five years of maturation in a new charred oak barrel make it a bourbon. That bourbon then experiences secondary maturation in decades-old casks seasoned by Pedro Ximenez sherry that adds a touch of sweetness and yields a smooth and impressively complex spirit. TASTING NOTES COLOR: copper to mahogany NOSE: autumnal notes of dried apricot, mission fig, and dried date PALATE: stewed prune and black raisin, with hints of candied orange peel; vanilla buttercream and toffee underneath MOUTHFEEL: rich, sticky cinnamon roll with raisins and spice FINISH: dark dried fruit, followed by warming brown baking spices

ORIGINAL AND AUTHENTIC In 2008, Balcones was nothing more than an idea driven by a passion to create something original and authentic, right here in the Heart of Texas. It all started in an old welding shop under a bridge in Waco. For the next year, we replaced the roofing, knocked out walls, laid brick, cut pipes, installed copper pot stills from Portugal, and shoehorned a whisky distillery inside that quaint building. Proud of what we had accomplished on our own, we began distilling in 2009.
Inspired by our city’s rich distilling history, Chattanooga Whiskey was founded in 2011 with a mission to bring back “Whiskey to the People.” Following the success of our community-powered Vote Whiskey campaign, we eventually became the first distillery in Chattanooga in over a century. In 2015, we began the patient process of crafting our malt-forward style of straight bourbon whiskey we call Tennessee High Malt. After 8 years in the making, our Tennessee High Malt was released in August 2019, marking a new era in our company history with a whiskey that celebrates the future as much as the history that got us here today. Opened in March 2015 and located in the heart of downtown Chattanooga, our Experimental Distillery is the first distillery to craft whiskey in Chattanooga in over 100 years. With over 100 different barrels maturing in the aging cellar, every visit to the Experimental Distillery is an exploration of the past, present and future of hand-crafted bourbon. Stop by for a tour and tasting and to check out our latest releases.
Inspired by the craft spirit movement in Oregon, Ted Pappas opened the doors to Big Bottom Whiskey in 2010 as the premier independent bottler of whiskeys located in Hillsboro, Oregon. In the initial years, the company primarily focused on merchant bottling of bourbons along with specialty finished bourbons such as the multiple awards winning Port Cask Finished Bourbon. In 2013, Big Bottom released its brother brand, Calhoun Bros. Adventure Spirits. Under that brand, the first whiskey pouch in the US market was introduced along with a traditional Aged Rum. The company expanded its operation in 2014, as they began to distill their own spirits in addition to aging, blending, finishing, and bottling their sourced whiskeys and aged rum. In 2015, Big Bottom Whiskey officially transitioned to Big Bottom Distilling, as they begin to release their own line of distilled products that include gins, rums, brandies and whiskeys. They will continue to offer their exclusive Warehouse Series – a boutique line of limited production spirits only available through the Big Bottom tasting room.
As the first distillery to open in Iowa since Prohibition, Cedar Ridge is preserving the legacy of a lost craft. Our techniques let each batch of our whiskey take on the character of Iowa’s land and climate. So from the very first sip, every step of the process is evident – from grain to glass. For that’s what makes Cedar Ridge Whiskey Authentic by Nature. SLIPKNOT NO. 9 RESERVE Slipknot and Cedar Ridge Distillery – two groups of people born and raised in Iowa, and committed to quality and hard work. We collaborated on “No. 9 Whiskey”, which in addition to Iowa corn, gets some extra spice from its rye content. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Live life, and always be safe. – Cheers, Clown A blend of 4-5 yr. old straight rye and straight bourbon mashed, fermented, distilled, and aged at the Cedar Ridge Distillery.
Bourbon Whiskey is a distinctly American product that has been produced in this country since the eighteenth century. Bourbon can be made in any U.S. state but the vast majority of it hails from Kentucky and can claim to be world-renowned Kentucky Bourbon. The site of the Green River Distillery has housed distilleries for nearly 130 years. The original Green River Distillery, built-in 1885, was the first in Owensboro and a major producer of Kentucky Bourbon for over 30 years. In 1918 the entire distillery burned to the ground. It was rebuilt in 1936 after prohibition, and most of the buildings on our grounds today date back to the late 1930s. In 1940 it was purchased by the Medley family and continued to produce significant quantities of Bourbon as the Charles Medley Distillers Kentucky until 1993. Here is a random sampling of just some of the bourbon brands that have been made on the site of our distillery. Some of these brands have moved on to different distilleries over time and some are no longer in production: Green River Ezra Brooks Mellow Corn Medley Brothers Kentucky Beau Old Medley Five Brothers
ASCENDANT SPIRITS is the first distillery to open in Santa Barbara County since Prohibition.

We are making great Bourbon, Vodka, Moonshine, Gin, Single Malt Whisky, and Rye. Come by and visit us for a tasting and tour. We’d love to show you what we do.
While we love to show off our historic distillery to as many folks as possible, our top priority is always the health and safety of our guests and our team. ID is required at check-in. Face coverings and proper social distancing are required during your time with us. No cash will be accepted. If you’re ever in Kentucky, we’d love to have you over for a tour of the distillery. You’ll find that the same attention to detail that goes into making our bourbon has gone into preserving this place. Star Hill Farm covers more than 1,000 acres. This includes North America’s first natural water sanctuary, started as part of our commitment to sustainability.
The Old Nick Williams Company, Inc., first established in 1768, was once known as one of the most revered brands of whiskey distillers in the United States. The Eighteenth Amendment in 1919 and subsequent prohibition forced the distillery to temporarily close. As heirs to this amazing legacy, we have brought back the legend of our ancestors and dedicated ourselves to living up to the quality and craftsmanship that once made our family’s whiskey famous around the world. CAROLINA BOURBON WHISKEY We’ve taken the wonderful flavors and aromas of the Carolina Whiskey up a notch by barrel aging it for approximately 18 months. Our Carolina Bourbon is a complex wheated Bourbon with notes of caramel, butterscotch, and toasted oak. Bottled at 92 proof, this bourbon finishes off smooth and warm to please a variety of palates. Our bourbon won double gold at the San Francisco World Spirit Competition.
Preservation’s farmhouse distillery and historic barns are set in the rolling hills of Kentucky Bluegrass Country, right along the Bourbon Trail. The surrounding green pastureland encompasses what is now Preservation Farms and represents our commitment to the art of slow distilling, and the goal of sustainability. When you visit our property, you will understand why we chose this specific land to create the big, rich flavors we’ve dreamed of distilling for years. Our farm and distillery sit on 40 beautiful acres and we can’t wait to share it and our unique micro-batch bourbon and whiskey with you.
In the rural hills of Wyoming County, where the pavement turns to dirt and the cornfields line the road, we set up shop in a small barn to distill craft spirits. This humble endeavor began by chance with the arrival of a homemade pot-still via family friend and southern moonshiner “Cowboy Bob”. It was here that Bob taught us the basics of distilling. In 2012, we filed for our DSP and NYS Class D Farm permits. This newly created license required at least 75% New York State grown produce to be used for the production of Spirits (we use 100%). This law allows for the direct sale to consumers, liquor stores, bars and restaurants without having to sell through a distributor. Thus making it possible to compete with large producers and promote local agriculture. By 2016 we decided to bring the Buffalo Distilling Company back to where its’ original namesake was founded in 1883 “The City Of Good Neighbors”, Buffalo. As luck would have it we were able to work with a group of developers revitalizing the historical Larkin district within the city. The Larkin Development group leased and eventually sold us the old Duchmann and Son’s carriage factory built […]
Split Rock Distillery for a dirt road we travel often—the shortcut between our two homes. It’s the only shortcut we’ve ever taken to bring you Maine’s first organic spirits. When we founded Split Rock, we promised ourselves we would handcraft our spirits the right way. That meant the long way: authentic, small-batch grain to glass, selling no spirit not our own. We spent evenings and weekends building a distillery and tasting room by hand in an old barn on historic Route One. We sourced organic grains and fruits from the fields of farmers we count as friends. We demanded organic sugars and drew waters so pure locals still harvest winter ice. We refined our fermentations again and again to showcase the unique signatures of our still. And through it all, we gathered knowledge, inspiration, a helping hand, and an honest opinion from other distillers, family, and friends, and every stranger fairly met.

Wilderness Trail Distillery has a pioneering spirit here at Wilderness Trail Distillery, just like the settlers who followed the path Daniel Boone blazed into Central Kentucky. In keeping with our location in the birthplace of Kentucky, we like blending old traditions with the science of making Bourbon and other fine spirits. After years of working with distilleries around the world to provide advice and fermentation products, we launched our premium craft distillery in 2012 with a focus on making the highest quality Bourbon, Rye Whiskey, Vodka, and Bourbon Barrel-Aged Rum. Our founders Shane Baker and Pat Heist are fermentation experts with more than 20 years of experience in the production of alcohol and some of the best brands on the market today. Our specialty is making unique spirits from locally-grown grains to ensure quality and adding a healthy dose of science in the process. Come see what we mean by visiting Wilderness Trail Distillery.
From start to finish, every step of production occurs under our control in our facility in New Richmond, Wisconsin. Our more traditional methods of mashing, fermenting, distilling and aging require more effort and are more costly than other more modern methods. Nevertheless, we understand that exceptional results often require patience. Our patience and hard work provide you with the finest quality of artisan spirits.
