The Farm Distillery at Locust Grove Excursion
Limited Capacity full

The true founders of Kentucky’s bourbon tradition were the farmers who settled in the Ohio Valley. Virtually all farms had stills in order to turn surplus grain into whiskey and surplus fruit in to brandy, saving both from rot and converting these crops to valuable commodities that could be traded when not consumed.  Historic house museum Locust Grove, dating from 1792, is situated on 55 pastoral acres just outside of downtown Louisville. The tour of the house and grounds will include its recreated small distillery and a tasting of whiskey and brandy similar to what the Croghan family, who settled the farm, would have drunk.
