The Kentucky Artisan Distillery is very unique place in the craft distillery world. The KAD is a contract distiller and bottler and currently serves as the home to three different brands. Our own brand, Whiskey Row Bourbon, is a pre-prohibition style bourbon that is only available in Kentucky. Highspire Whiskey is a 100% rye aged in used red wine barrels from Hope Family Wines in Napa, which contracts the KAD to make the product for them. And finally, the KAD’s most well-known brand: Jefferson’s Reserve Bourbon.

  • Great craft distillery, Bob gave a very informative tour, willing to answer all questions. Really enjoyed hearing the origin of the Jeffersons Ocean brand. Very friendly and accomodating staff, we got there a little late without a reservation for the 10 am tour and they allowed my father, son and me to join the tour. Thanks guys. Tasted 4 bourbons at the end, all great. Picked up a bottle of the Jeffersons small batch. Will be back when I'm in the area.
  • Can’t go through Kentucky without doing a bourbon tasting! This place was small but put together well. Got to taste, tour the distilling and bottling areas. Host was very knowledgeable and was willing to answer most of your questions. If you want intimate bourbon experience, this is the way to go.
  • What a fantastic little jewel in the crown of the bourbon trail this place is. It’s a small facility packed with love and great people. Oh and the bourbon is delicious too. Patty was our tour guide and was by far the best guide we have ever had the pleasure to experience. She is knowledgeable, fun, and full of energy. What an invigorating breath of fresh air she is. I’m SO happy we took this tour! They offer discounts for first responders and veterans, but even at full price, the $12 cost of admission is well worth it. Our designated driver was able to tour at no cost. Thank you KAD for an experience that was outstanding!
  • Fantastic tour given by Laura. She was very knowledgeable and friendly. She also led our tasting in the speakeasy and it was fantastic!
  • Went and did a tour and tasting today. Tour was good, host was knowledgeable. Bourbon was good and we liked the variety.
