Micro distilleries are, as the name suggests, small scale. Our facility is 2600 square feet, gift shop included. We chose to set up at the historic town square in Bowling Green, Kentucky so we’re easy to visit and so that, once you visit us, you can do more things in the immediate area. Downtown Bowling Green has wonderful restaurants, shops, galleries, theater, parks that host many events, and Bowling Green’s new minor league baseball stadium.
Our Pot Still. At our Bowling Green location we use a 50 gallon hybrid pot still custom made by Vendome Copper in Louisville. This still is used to make a variety of different products from absinthe to gin to whiskey. Four plates in the still’s column, each of which can be disabled, give us the flexibility to distill various spirits. We disable this column and shunt spirit vapors to still’s vapor basket to make our gin-head style gin. Extracting the flavors of gin’s botanicals via vapor, rather than soaking the juniper and other herbs in liquid alcohol, yields less bitterness and, we think, a brighter, fresher gin.
The Distillery and Gift Shop is open Friday and Saturday from 10am – 6pm for tours and tastings, during this time no appointment is needed. If you wish to visit at another time, special tours are available by appointment. If you’re visiting us, be aware that our entrance is on the side of our building. Park at Bowling Green’s town square, then walk down the College Street side of our building until you find us. We’re right across from the Daily News building at College St. and Spring Alley, if you’re mapping us.
