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.

  • Tour started with tasting, instructions for sipping and a flavor wheel for further explanation. The location is small, but worth a visit if you have the time. You cannot beat the price of this tour....  more

  • Start by trying 5 different bourbons with very well informed guide. You end up with a good understanding of bourbon and how it’s made.

  • You can truly tell how genuine this business is about their craft from the moment you walk in the door. Having experienced the tasting and tour back in January 2022 and this past weekend July 2022, the quality has only gotten better - both in product and tour. Very worthwhile distillery and one to visit if you are around the city! High quality experience you won't soon forget!
  • This was a great experience. I did not get to do the tour but I did do a tasting. The staff was very polite and fun to talk to. The whiskeys were all really good and the prices were great. They off things like bourbon slushies and other drinks which was awesome too. Definitely will go back when I come here again!
