The O.Z. Tyler Distillery in Owensboro, Kentucky has a storied past dating back to the late 1800s. The 25-acre distillery site last produced whiskey in 1993 as the Medley Distillery and then laid dormant until it was purchased by the Terressentia Corporation in 2014. After extensive renovations, the distillery was renamed for O.Z. “Ty” Tyler, co-inventor of the TerrePURE® process, which we use to refine our bourbon after it has been barrel-aged.

The O.Z. Tyler Distillery began producing Kentucky Bourbon in August, 2016 and will begin bottling in 2017.

The Gift Shop is open Monday through Friday from 10am - 3pm, and Satrudays 10am - 4pm (CST).

Hard-hat tours are available Monday through Friday at 11am and 2pm, and Saturdays at 11am, 1pm, and 3pm.

  • We loved being able to “thieve” from the barrels, then tasting what we took. Day did an amazing job educating us on the process from start to finish.

  • We have been doing the bourbon tour for a couple of years now and this was one of our best ones. The history and tour guide was awesome. Sorry I can’t remember the young man’s name but he made it great even though it was 20deg outside. We left with 3 bottles. It’s warm now.
  • Such an amazing place filled with over a century of history. Great tour and great people! A must stop on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail!
