Eastern Light Distilling to Bring Bourbon Industry to Eastern Kentucky
The Rise of Bourbon in Kentucky
When one thinks of bourbon, the first place that comes to mind is usually Louisville, Kentucky. Known for its rich bourbon heritage, Louisville has been the hub of the bourbon industry for decades. However, a new player is making its mark in the Bluegrass State, aiming to bring the bourbon industry to eastern Kentucky.
Introducing Eastern Light Distilling
Eastern Light Distilling, a pioneering spirits company, has set its sights on the eastern region of Kentucky, with plans to establish a distillery and tap into the growing bourbon market. Led by a team of passionate individuals who understand the true essence of bourbon, Eastern Light Distilling aims to revive the once-thriving bourbon industry in this part of the state.
A Game-Changer for Eastern Kentucky
Eastern Kentucky has long been associated with coal mining, but recent economic shifts have led to a decline in this industry.

It offers a unique chance for the community to diversify and thrive.

Kentucky is renowned worldwide for producing the finest bourbon, and Eastern Light Distilling understands the responsibility that comes with stepping into this revered industry. The company has assembled a team of expert distillers, blenders, and craftsmen, all with a shared mission to create exceptional spirits that capture the essence of the region.
Local Sourcing for Authentic Flavors
One of the key ingredients to producing exceptional bourbon is the corn used in the mash. Eastern Light Distilling is committed to sourcing its corn locally, ensuring that each bottle of bourbon truly reflects the flavors of eastern Kentucky. By supporting local farmers and engaging with the community, the distillery aims to create a sustainable and interconnected bourbon ecosystem.
A Tourist Destination in the Making
As Eastern Light Distilling establishes itself as a prominent player in the bourbon industry, it also hopes to attract tourists and bourbon enthusiasts to eastern Kentucky. With plans to offer engaging tours, tastings, and educational experiences, the distillery aims to showcase the rich heritage and craftsmanship that make Kentucky bourbon truly special.
The future of the bourbon industry in eastern Kentucky looks bright, thanks to the efforts of Eastern Light Distilling.
