Our journey to Elkwood Farm began in 2018, but the farm itself was constructed nearly 200 years ago in the mid-1830s. The main residence on the property now serves as our visitors center, gift shop, and main bar. Currently, we are in the process of constructing the distillery and ten barrel warehouses. Once completed, the new distillery will have the capacity to produce over 20,000 barrels per year, a significant increase from the 300 barrels produced at our Downtown Lexington facility. Furthermore, we utilize the majority of the 62 acres surrounding the home to cultivate our blue and yellow corn, which is used in the production of our bourbon.
Join us to witness the future of Bluegrass Distillers on our historic grounds, where you’ll immerse yourself in a true grain-to-glass distillery experience, just 10 minutes from Frankfort, KY and 15 minutes from Lexington, KY. Production starting March 2024. Guided Tastings and Visitors Center are now open to the public.
