Bluegrass Distillers, Lexington

Distillery · Hidden Gem · Food & Drink
Bluegrass Distillers is a craft bourbon distillery Lexington, Kentucky. This beautiful and special place on earth in the heart of the Kentucky bluegrass region is both the horse racing capital of the world as well as where the finest bourbon whiskey in the world is made and aged.

Embodying the spirit of championship Kentucky thoroughbred racing, the authentic handmade Bluegrass Distillers craft whiskeys and bourbons are distilled with excellence, evoking the timeless tradition, class, coupled with robust flavors with each sip.

Our recipes are formulated in house and each batch hand crafted with local and locally sourced Kentucky Proud ingredients. Following distillation, our spirits are aged to perfection right here in our new custom made charred white oak barrels.

We invite you to a tasting of our unique small batch spirits as well as to check out a fascinating tour next time you are in downtown Lexington.

With less than 10% of bourbon brands being mashed and distilled at their own distillery, it seems farfetched for these to use the term “craft” or “handmade” for their whiskey and bourbon products.

For the last 4 years since Bluegrass Distillers was born, the rigor of creating, tweaking, and innovating our recipes, methods, and the actual task of making mash, fermenting, and distillation has been arduous. It quickly became obvious why the vast majority of others in the industry prefer the much easier way of buying product from another large distillery and simply bottling with a new name and brand just to have a product to sell immediately. The Bluegrass Distillers journey has been a long one requiring much patience. However, our special group is very proud that every aspect of our product from the blending of ingredients, mashing, fermentation, distillation in our 250 gallon copper still, bottling, and even labelling is done in our own distillery by the hands of the Bluegrass Distillers dedicated team.

We are very proud of our product and we are confident that once you taste our bourbon and tour our distillery you will understand why.

  • We were very excited to stumble upon this unique distillery! Since the warehouse is smaller it was a very intimate tour and we were able to hear everything and ask questions. The bourbon was good and they made in house cocktails for those (like me) who cannot drink bourbon straight. Will definitely be back!
  • They offer a great product and a funny and education atmosphere for a small and up and coming distillery. I got to fill my own bottle and take it with me. Great find even though it is not well known! And to top it all off, the staff is very knowledgeable.
