Hartfield & Co. Distillery
Hartfield & Co. Distillery
Hartfield & Co. is the first distillery in Bourbon County, KY since 1919 making our bourbon some of the first to come from the namesake county in almost a century. We take a different approach in the production of our spirits, altering the fundamentals of the process. Starting with the mashbill, all the way through the aging process. All that we do is engineered to keep flavor in our spirits resulting in a dramatically different end flavor profile. Join us for a tour anytime through the week. Stop by and we will show you around for a little while with a tasting at the end. Our County tours happen Saturday evenings and are our only scheduled tours through the week. These are reservation only and do fill up quickly!

Distilleries
Makers Mark Distillery
Makers Mark Distillery
Maker's Mark began with one family's quest to create a bourbon they enjoyed drinking and sharing with friends. That's hardly revolutionary today, but in 1953 it changed an industry. At Maker's Mark, it's one bottle at a time. Every time. That's as true today as it was when our founders filled our first bottle. And since then, it's been a widely held belief around here that character isn't made by machine.
Distilleries
Town Branch
Town Branch
Town Branch is infused with a golden amber honey color, which is an inviting introduction to this masterfully crafted bourbon. Pleasant woody and oaky aromas lead into caramel, toffee, brown sugar, and hints of cherry. The lavish and complex flavors are smooth and sweet with a gentle warming leading to a long finish. Named for the Town Branch waterway upon which Lexington was founded and once was the site of much bourbon production, Town Branch® Bourbon celebrates Lexington’s rich distilling history.
