James E. Pepper Distillery

In the Distillery District downtown, this historic distillery offers tours that tell the lost story of an iconic American brand and include a tasting of their award-winning whiskeys. The Pepper family brand is an iconic Kentucky bourbon produced from the American Revolution through 1958. Out of production for decades, it re-launched in 2017 at the site of the original Lexington distillery of 1879. Flights and special cocktails can be purchased as well.
