Kentucky Bourbon Distillers

Kentucky Bourbon Distillers In 1935, the distillery was erected on a farm, purchased by Lambert Willett, father of Thompson Willett, founder of the Willett Distilling Company. Thompson’s brother, Johnny Willett, was an established engineer, who was responsible for the construction of the distillery. Great efforts to restore the distillery to its original state have been ongoing for several years and are now in the final stages of completion. Upon completion of renovations, Kentucky Bourbon Distillers will welcome visitors from all over the world.

  Johnny Drum
The character and flavor of this superb sour mash whiskey never varies. The method of production has remained unchanged down through five generations of the same family of master distillers. Produced in limited quantities to insure the finest quality possible in our old family tradition.
  Kentucky Vintag
Kentucky Vintage is a Handcrafted Original Sour Mash Bourbon. From a select few barrels, Kentucky’s most skilled master distillers carefully hand-pick the very few Barrels that meet their criteria for Small Batch Bourbon. Like fine Cognac and great Chateau's, a limited few barrels become destined for greatness. This Bourbon has been allowed to age long beyond that of any ordinary Bourbon, giving it taste and flavor characteristics not found among other bourbons. Kentucky Vintage is handcrafted in very small quantities in the heart of the Bluegrass - Kentucky’s famous Bourbon producing region.
  Noah’s Mill Genuine Bourbon Whiskey
Noah’s Mill Genuine Bourbon Whiskey is handmade in the hills of Kentucky. This is a Bourbon of extraordinary character and smoothness not found among younger whiskies. Its superior taste and flavor characteristics are made possible only from using the very finest quality ingredients at the outset along with the long years and patience necessary for nature to mellow everything to perfection. We bottle this Bourbon at a strength that best compliments its age, and we’re sure you’ll enjoy it like no other Bourbon.
  Pure Kentucky XO
This extraordinary Bourbon is the result of generations of the master distiller’s fine art of distilling. Pure Kentucky is an all natural product. Made with all natural ingredients and pure limestone water, it is a true masterpiece among Kentucky's finest Bourbons. We hand-bottle this bourbon, extra old, in very limited quantities, one Small Batch at a time.
  Rowan’s Creek
Rowan’s Creek is made and bottled by hand, in small lots, one batch at a time. This Bourbon takes its namesake from the creek that still runs through our distillery. Back in the late 1700’s when John Rowan first settled around Bardstown , whiskey makin’ was the order of the day. John went on and made a name for himself as a well respected judge and statesmen. The judge is long since gone, but the creek that still bears his name is still carrying the best limestone spring water there ever was for making good Bourbon, so you know the whiskey makin’ is still going on. Try a sip of it, straight up in a snifter, or add a dab of branch water if you like. Either way, it’s the very best there is.
