A destination on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, Lux Row Distillers' motto is "Real Roots, Real Family, Real Products." According to information on the company's website, "In 2015, as our whiskey brands continued to grow and expand, we realized we were going
to have to build our own site to service our needs going forward. As such, we began the hunt for our very own distillery site. Kentucky, with its rich southern culture, abundant natural resources of both high-quality grains and fine limestone filtered
water, was the natural fit. Building our own distillery represents a natural evolution for Luxco.
"We have been steeped in the bourbon business for over forty years, having others distill for us to service our needs. We learned from them and now understand that it is our time to do it ourselves in order to fill the growing demand for our products.
"With over 18,000 square feet, 6 barrel warehouses at capacity and a 43-foot custom copper still, Lux Row Distillers is capable of producing 3 million gallons of spirit per year. When fully complete we will have the composite to process 50 thousand barrels
of whiskey annually." The company's brands include Rebel Yell, Ezra Brooks, David Nicholson and Blood Oath.
