WILDERNESS TRAIL ACHIEVES HERITAGE MEMBER RANK
Wilderness Trail Distillery has achieved Heritage member, the highest ranking, with the Kentucky Distillers Association. The ranking is determined when a distillery has more than 25,000 barrels in storage. Wilderness Trail has the capacity for more than 100,000 barrels in storage with more barrelhouses on the way. This photo shows barrelhouses seven and eight under construction. Click here for more information.
Special note: If you received some discretionary funds for the holidays, don’t miss the opportunity to treat yourself by purchasing Fred Minnick’s barrel pick in our gift shop.
Wilderness Trail is open for tours Tuesday through Saturday with your safety and ours in mind. Our tours sizes are smaller to allow for social distancing. We offer an hour-long tour with tastings offered at the tour’s conclusion. Of course, we request everyone to wear a face mask and masks are mandatory on certain parts of the tour. Go here for details.
We have a pioneering spirit here at Wilderness Trail Distillery, just like the settlers who followed the path Daniel Boone blazed into Central Kentucky. In keeping with our location in the birthplace of Kentucky, we like blending old traditions with the science of making Bourbon and other fine spirits.
After years of working with distilleries around the world to provide advice and fermentation products, we launched our premium craft distillery in 2012 with a focus on making the highest quality Bourbon, Rye Whiskey, Vodka and Bourbon Barrel-Aged Rum. Our founders Shane Baker and Pat Heist are fermentation experts with more than 20 years of experience in the production of alcohol and some of the best brands on the market today. Our specialty is making unique spirits from locally-grown grains to ensure quality, and adding a healthy dose of science in the process. Come see what we mean by visiting Wilderness Trail Distillery.
