Bardstown Welcomes Newly Opened Lux Row to its Family of Distilleries

Lux Row Distillers, producer of Bourbon brands Ezra Brooks, David Nicholson, Blood Oath, and Rebel Yell, has opened its doors in Bardstown, Kentucky.

A ribbon cutting ceremony was held this week for industry insiders and special guests, announcing the opening of the distillery after two years of construction. While distilling began in January, this will be visitors’ first chance to see the facility for themselves.

With over 18,000 square feet, 6 barrel warehouses at capacity and a 43-foot custom copper still, Lux Row Distillers is capable of producing 3 million gallons of spirit per year. When fully complete, the distillery expects to process 50 thousand barrels of whiskey annually.

The team is led by Master Distiller John Rempke, who has created brands like the ultra premium Blood Oath and Rebel Yell 10 year.

Lux Row is open now to visitors wishing to tour and taste at the distillery. They are open Wednesday through Saturday, 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sunday from 12:30 to 4 p.m., with tours offered at the top of every hour.
