FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Two more distilleries have been added to the Kentucky Bourbon Trail Craft Tour, bringing the total number of micro distilleries included to 10.
They are Kentucky Peerless Distilling Co. and Hartfield & Co. Distillery.
The new state-of-the art Kentucky Peerless distillery opened in June in downtown Louisville. Corky Taylor and his son, Carson, have revived the brand that their ancestor, Henry Kraver of Henderson County, made famous in the 1880s.
Andrew and Larissa Buchanan became the first licensed distiller in Bourbon County since 1919 when they opened The Gentleman Distillery in Paris last year and recently changed the name to Hartfield & Co. to reflect their family’s distilling heritage in Green County in the 1800s.
The tour was founded in 2012 to complement the Kentucky Distillers’ Association’s Kentucky Bourbon Trail.
